Wearing chandelier earrings
February 2, 2014, 10:40 am

Chandelier earrings are one of those fashion classics that every woman must have in her jewelry collection. These earrings are definitely a style classic, and by following these basic ideas you can get the best of those sparkling dangling beauties.

Choose your look: There are several kinds of chandelier earrings so pick a pair depending on the look you’re trying to achieve and for what purpose or occasion you are wearing it. Junk jewelry made of cheaper metal looks especially fabulous if you are going for the always in fashion Bohemian gypsy look. On the other hand, earrings made of gold, silver or any precious metal or even adorned with stones are better suited to a more formal occasion. Chandelier earrings are best-suited for a non-professional work environment.

Lengths and shapes: Long is definitely beautiful but these earrings should definitely never ever be longer than your neck. Also, if you have a broad, round face, wear slimmer chandeliers and avoid ones with a broader base because they only seem to make your face look broader and rounder. If you have a thin face, balance it out with broader earrings in exactly the opposite way. And remember, if you have very short hair, don’t wear earrings that fall too far below your jaw line otherwise it just seems disproportionate.

Wearing jewelry with long hair can also be tricky: Unless you choose a style that keeps the hair out of the face and behind the ears, chandelier earring can be ‘swallowed’ by the mane. Wear your hair in an updo, and pick earrings that are bold and sparkle.

Other jewelry:  As chandelier earrings are pretty dressy, you don’t need to wear any other pieces of jewelry. You could wear a matching bracelet or a ring at the most. Wearing a statement necklace with flashy earrings will be an overdose of bling. Let the focus be on the beautiful chandelier earrings.

Mix and match: Instead of wearing matching jewelry, counterbalance your other accessories with your chandelier earrings. So if you’re wearing earrings studded with diamantes, you could create a stunning ensemble by including a diamante-studded bag, or a pair of shiny shoes into the mix.
