Extra tips to look stylish when wearing statement earrings:
– Stick to one statement piece.
If you go for earrings, forget about other oversized or heavily adorned pieces. Irrespective of the occasion, the other accessories should be less dramatic. It’s best either to go for a very thin and simple necklace or to skip it altogether. The only piece that can be a bit shinier and heavy is the bracelet.
– Strapless dresses are ideal for these earrings.
When you have both your arms and your chest exposed, you might feel uncomfortable. An exquisite pair of earrings is exactly what you need to balance the look and to bring the attention to your face.
– Pick different earrings at the office.
Statement jewellery is not appropriate for an office environment. Keep things simple at work and go for bolder moves in your time off.
– Stay comfortable.
Make sure the earrings won’t risk getting tangled in scarves or other clothing items. This can lead to unpleasant and embarrassing situations that you will never forget. Many women ruined both silky scarves and beautiful earrings that got entangled.
– If you choose colorful earrings, it is best to try a monochromatic look.
Mixing many prints is too much and never looks stylish. When you make the accessory catch the attention, you can tone down the variety of shades of your clothes.
