By  | 

Statement jewellery is a girl’s most prized possession. We buy them for special occasions and there nothing better than a cute choker or pretty earrings to glam up a regular outfit. Pretty earrings can add so much drama to a look and also become the statement piece in an outfit. Of course, they are the most impulse buys. Long, dangling earrings are often bought on a whim, at a local market while you bargain with the seller or at the mall where the shiny accessories call out to you. And while you can have earrings that you specially favour, you can also pick earrings to actually flatter your face. Yes, who knew?

So we put together a guide to picking our the best earrings according to the face shape. Follow these pointers while shopping for danglers and let your ears do all the talking.

Heart-Shaped Face

What is it: As the name suggests, the heart shape is characterised by a narrow jawline and wide cheekbones.

The best styles for it: Any accessory that balances out the  narrow part of a heart-shaped face will be super flattering. Full, rounded earrings that add volume just below the jawline will work well for this face shape. Look for small tops that go into more chunkier bits. It would be a good idea for the lower half to have lots of colour, it will draw the the eyes to that part of the face.

Round Shape

What is it: Ladies with envy inciting wide cheekbones are part of the round face shaped crowd. With narrower jawline and forehead, this is a classic face shape.

The best styles for it: Women with round faces are widest at their cheeks so adding in lengthening details in the mix works spectacularly for you.  Shoulder dusters are a great way to elongate the face, especially with ethnic wear. Long, light shoulder dusters can frame the face and add much needed length.

Oval Shape

What is it: As evident by the name, the oval-shaped face is longer than wide and one of the most versatile face shapes in terms of accessorising and styling.

The best styles for it: What better way to accessorise an oval face than with similarly shaped danglers? Chandbalis are in trend this shaadi season and they look great on women with long oval faces, especially the ones with a narrow-ish jawlines. The pristine white pearly ones flaunted here by Aditi have our heart.

Square Shape

What is it: A striking face shape, the square is defined by a strong jaw, wide forehead and wide cheekbones.

The best styles for it: The square face shape’s features can be softened by sleek accessories that can balance the symmetrical edges. Slim and minimal danglers look chic and work well to erase the otherwise boxy look.
