Here are some of the best earrings styles that every women must have.
1. Stud Earrings. The beauty of the stud is its simplicity. Usually made of a tiny gemstones or precious metals, the stud’s main attribute is that it looks like it’s suspended or hovering in the middle of nowhere on your earlobe. These earrings feature a hidden back post and has a back piece (also called a clutch) that has friction and screws on it to keep it from sliding off and getting lost. Studs don’t have any specially dictated shape, so they can be small flat circle shapes, squares, mini-orbs or diamond patterns. They may even be more specific shapes, such as crosses, guitars, stars or any other design. Studs work for everyone and for every look, but they work particularly well on girls, younger women, those with shorter haircuts and in any working environment. Studs are simple, stylish and the most versatile of all ear jewelry.
2. Hoop Earrings. With a circular, semi-circular, or oval shape, hoops are ring-shaped ear jewelry that comes in various sizes and types of precious metals. You’ll find a wide variety of hoop sizes, as well as different thicknesses, types of metals and shapes. This classic look is often most effective on women with long hair that’s pulled back or up into a dressy bun or ponytail. Hoops often give the wearer an eclectic appearance.
3. Cuff Earrings. Cuffs basically wrap around some portion of your ears. The shape of cuffs is somewhat similar to hoops, though much smaller and tighter so they can easily envelope the edge of your ears securely. They don’t have to be simple hoops. Cuffs often take on symbolic shapes such as the body of a man or woman clinging to the ear, an object such as a leaf or a rose and more. Cuffs often create more of a statement than other ear jewelry.
4. Chandelier Earrings. This type of ear jewelry is often ornate, yet can still be adaptable to many circumstances, though they’re best worn for a night on the town in your favorite dress and a special hairstyle. These highly decorative earrings can be found in a variety of materials including metals, shells, beads, seeds, feathers and more.
It won’t matter whether you’re seeking earrings for the office, a formal dinner, a Saturday afternoon at an outdoor concert or other occasions, you’ll find something that suits the occasion as well as your own fashion taste.
