Do you know your body well? Do you understand your face shape? Can you identify which style suits you best? Earrings are magical accessories that sit closest to your face, and they can add unique features to every look and personality. Different earring styles and designs can evoke different feelings.

Doesn't it sound magical?

Wearing earrings is a daily ritual to become an exquisite individual. They are great for brightening up your outfits. We have demonstrated this in our previous "Weekly Styling Suggestions" through various themes and styles. Do you all remember? If you must choose one accessory, earrings are an essential item for everyone!

However, if they don't suit our face shape, it can make the overall look appear uncoordinated and detract from the outfit. This would mean losing the functionality of beautiful items. We believe that a beautiful item is meant to make your natural self-more dazzling and captivating, rather than concealing your flaws or blindly following fashion trends. Choosing the right earrings for yourself can be tricky at times, and it's one of the common challenges we often hear from girls. You're definitely not alone! From basic styles and preferences to designs, materials, and more... with countless choices, combining all the functions correctly to brighten up your outfits is in line with the spirit of being a true collector.

Today, let's share with you a practical and simple technique on "how to choose earrings that suit you." Girls who are afraid of forgetting should immediately bookmark this!

Why choose earrings based on face shape?

Considering face shape when choosing earrings is important because different face shapes have different features and proportions. The right earring styles can balance facial contours, highlight your best features, and create a more harmonious and aesthetically pleasing appearance. Here are the reasons to consider face shape when selecting earrings:

  1. Balancing facial contours
    Choosing suitable earring styles can balance the width and length of your face, making it look more proportionate. The right earring styles can compensate for or emphasize specific areas of your face, such as reducing the width of the forehead or balancing sharp features of the chin.

  2. Accentuating strengths
    Choosing the appropriate earring styles can highlight your facial strengths, such as high cheekbones or bright eyes. The right earring styles can direct attention to the areas you want to showcase, enhancing the overall beauty of your face.

  3. Creating visual balance
    Different face shapes have distinct features and proportions, and suitable earring styles can create visual balance. By selecting the right shapes, sizes, and lengths, earrings can help adjust the proportions of your facial contours, making them look more coordinated and appealing.

  4. Adding personal style
    Earrings are significant accessories that can express your personal style and personality. Choosing earrings that complement your face shape can help you showcase your unique style and add highlights to your overall image.


Measure your dimensions.

Determining your face shape is simple. Brush your hair away from your face, take out a measuring tape and mirror, and measure the following four dimensions:

  1. Full face length: Measure from the top of your hairline to the lowest part of your chin.
  2. Forehead width: Measure the distance across the central part of your forehead from hairline to hairline. Do not curve the tape measure along the curve—keep it flat.
  3. Cheekbone width: Touch the highest point of your cheekbone and measure across your face from one cheekbone to the other. Again, keep the tape measure flat instead of pressing it against the skin.
  4. Jawline width: Place the tape measure just below your earlobe, pull it to the center of your chin, and then multiply by two.


Confirming Face Shapes


  1. Oval Face: Also known as an elliptical face, the width of the forehead and chin is relatively even, and the face length is slightly longer, presenting a soft and balanced shape.

  2. Square Face: The width from the cheekbones to the forehead or chin doesn't narrow, and the width of the forehead, cheekbones, and chin is similar, resulting in a distinct straight or square contour.

  3. Round Face: The cheekbones are more prominent compared to the forehead and chin, giving the face an overall circular shape.

  4. Inverted Triangle Face: The top of the head is narrower, and the chin is wider, with usually well-defined facial features.

  5. Triangle Face: The sides of the jawbone and chin are wider, while the forehead is narrower.

  6. Diamond Face: Also known as a rhomboid face, the forehead and chin are relatively narrower compared to the cheekbones, creating a rhomboid or diamond shape, often with prominent cheekbones.

  7. Heart-shaped Face: The forehead is wider than the cheekbones, and the chin is pointed, gradually narrowing down from the forehead, resembling a heart shape.

  8. Rectangular Face: The face length is longer, and the width of the forehead, cheekbones, and chin is relatively narrow and similar, resulting in a vertically elongated shape.

Note: The descriptions provided here are for reference purposes and may not encompass all variations within each face shape category.


Choose Designs Based on Face Shape

  1. Oval Face: Almost any style of earrings suits an oval face. You can choose different designs based on personal preference and occasion.

  2. Square Face: Soft curves and round-shaped earrings, especially long oval earrings, can balance the straight contours of the face and make it appear softer.

  3. Round Face: Long or dangling earrings can create a vertical visual effect and make the face appear longer.

  4. Inverted Triangle Face: Choose designs that are narrower at the top and wider at the bottom, such as teardrop-shaped or dangling earrings. This can balance the sharp features of the chin and create a soft visual effect.

  5. Triangle Face: Choose earrings that do not add volume or widen the chin. The best designs are slim and elongated earrings, threader earrings, long tassel drops, and studs are also good choices.

  6. Diamond Face: Choose earrings with wider widths, such as different-shaped and sized hoop earrings, studs, or cluster earrings like large circular or square earrings. This helps balance the width-to-narrowness ratio of the face and make it appear more balanced.

  7. Heart-shaped Face: Choose earrings with wider widths, such as cobalt-shaped or teardrop-shaped earrings. This can balance the width-to-narrowness ratio of the face and make it appear more balanced.

  8. Rectangular Face: Choose earrings with wider widths, such as fan-shaped or diamond-shaped earrings. This can balance the elongated features of the face and make it appear more balanced.


Choosing earrings that suit your face shape will help you showcase the beauty and features of your face to the fullest and create a more coordinated and balanced overall look. Selecting the right earring styles can enhance your confidence and make you feel more comfortable and beautiful.
