What Do Your Earrings Say About You?

When it comes to jewelry, it’s always fun to experiment with different looks and change up your style based on your mood, outfit choice or dress code of an event you are attending. And most women know that no outfit is really complete without the addition of earrings. Whether you are the type for dangles, hoops or studs, what you choose to wear to adorn your ears can say a lot about both your personality type and the look that you are going for.

With so many options to choose from, especially in the realm of fine jewelry, earrings can make or break an outfit. They communicate more about you than you think to people you encounter throughout the day. Knowing what you want to portray before you put on a pair of earrings can help your personality and your personal style shine through!

Pearl Studs

Pearls are a classic and timeless look that give off a vibe of purity and innocence. Pearl studs say that the wearer is classy and refined, with great manners and a friendly, approachable attitude. Wear these when you’re going into a job interview, meeting a new boyfriend’s parents for the first time or with a classy outfit when you head out on the town for a nice dinner.

Diamond Studs

But, that doesn’t mean you can’t wear a pair of diamond studs if you are not in a relationship. They’re often given as gifts by family members or dear friends, so wear your diamond studs when you want to feel special, like after a long, hard day at the office, or when you’re going to visit family and friends that you haven’t seen for some time. They’re also great, simple options for formal events.

Hoop Earrings

Small to medium-sized hoops say that you are friendly and approachable, and they make your smile look wider. They symbolize a romantic person who is drawn to others. They make great accessories with any casual outfit in any setting, and even look great with a business suit and a ponytail in your hair.

Chandelier Earrings

Chandelier earrings are those long, dangling earrings that you see adorning the ears of celebrities on the red carpet, so it’s no wonder they epitomize formality and class. Save your best pairs of chandelier earrings for formal events and dinners, or dare to wear a simple pair with an otherwise plain outfit during the day. Chandelier earrings show confidence and a good fashion sense when paired with the right outfit. Keep the clothes simple so you don’t overdo the look.

Dangling Earrings

Any form of dangling earrings other than chandeliers can be dressed down to be not quite as formal. Be careful, though, as dangling earrings show movement, and movement in jewelry can be considered sensual. They are sexy and feminine, and can dress up just about any out-on-the-town outfit. Try to steer clear of wearing dangling earrings in professional settings, but if you do, pair them with a more casual outfit and a simple hairstyle, rather than something too dressy.

Earrings are often one of the first pieces of jewelry someone sees on another person. Choose earrings to go with your next outfit wisely, and be sure to visit J.M. Edwards Jewelry in Raleigh, NC the next time you need a classy pair of new earrings!
