Don’t Be Afraid Of The Big Earrings! (how to wear ’em)

Some of you have probably noticed my penchant for big earrings. Okay confession time- I own more than I can wear in a lifetime. But see I make jewelries so in my spare time (which is rare these days), I can bend and twist a pair of hoops whenever I feel like it. Then of course a trip to the mall is never complete without visiting the accessories section. Why this insane obsession over humongous earrings? Two things: they brighten a haggard-looking face and glam up a drab outfit.

Oftentimes when I give my girlfriends some big earrings they’d ask “how do I wear these? will they look good on short hair? can I wear this at work? etc. I know it can get a little overwhelming, what with the countless styles and colors!

So what are the rules in wearing these biggy earrings then? Honestly? None! Wear them to your heart’s content. Biggy don’t care. Alright, I take that back. I have a few but that’s how I’d wear mine.

1. Skip statement neckpiece/necklace when you’re wearing big earrings. Let the ears do the talking. You can wear cuff or bangle if you want but stick to the minimum please.

2. You can never go wrong with silver big hoops. Jeans or LBD, they look just as fab when paired with hoops.

3. When  wearing busy or multi-colored earrings, wear a solid top that has at least one shade similar to your earrings.

4. Consider the shape of your face and strive for balance. If you have round face, wear something that is long and angular; if you have square shape, opt for round and curves (hoops!). If you have heart shape, chandelier earrings is a great choice.

Lastly, when buying earrings, pick the pair that made you smile. Trust me, you will look good with anything that makes you happy #positivevibes

    I am always attracted to big earrings and have two pair of large hoops that I only wear when my hair is a certain length. When I had very short hair I felt like they didn't look good on me? Now that my hair is getting longer I'm feeling excited that I can add some REAL busy-looking earrings to my collection!! Love your collection :).

    I love the big orangy coral ones you're wearing in the collage. I used to make jewelry but it kind of fell by the wayside lately. 🙂
