So, let's dive into the earrings style guide...
Best earrings for square faces
Medium to large hoops
With square faces the forehead and jaw are equal in width and they match the length of the face too, so the key is to soften the angles by introducing circles, opt for medium to large hoops as these will help elongate the face.
Best earrings for diamond shaped faces
Diamond faces are wide across the cheek bones with a pointed chin and narrow forehead. In general diamond face shapes suit most styles of stud earrings, but dangle earrings are perfect for creating the illusion of width near the the jawline and chin to help balance out the face.
Best earrings for rectangle faces
Large round studs or medium sized hoops
Rectangular faces have a combination of elongated features and angles so you'll want to avoid long earrings as they will exaggerate the these features, instead choose large round studs or medium sized hoops that will add extra width near the cheek bones as well as roundness to balance the angles.
Earrings that suit triangle or heart shaped faces
Wide across the forehead with a delicate, pointed chin, triangle and heart shaped faces are best suited to teardrop dangle earrings as this style will mirror a triangle face shape and balance the width of the forehead.
Earrings for round shaped faces
Long dangle and drop earrings
Long dangle and drop earrings do an amazing job of adding length to round faces which are characterised by wide cheek bones with a rounded chin and forehead.
Best earrings for oval faces
All earring styles
Oval faces are blessed with suiting all earring types as the length and width are already perfectly balanced and the chin and forehead are well rounded.
