These 5 rules on how to choose the best earrings for your face shape are helpful whether you’re buying a pair for yourself or a gift for someone else. In this easy guide, we explain how to identify your face shape, and what earrings flatter it most.
1. Earrings for a square face shape
Square faces have a strong, geometric jaw line. They do not narrow much from the cheekbones towards the forehead. If you have a square face, then hoop earrings and long drop earrings with rounded designs are the most flattering for you. These rounded shapes will balance your look and help soften the angles of your cheekbones and jaw.

2. Earrings for an oval face shape
Oval faces feature high foreheads and elongated features. The forehead is about as wide as the cheekbones. If you have an oval face, you’re very lucky! You can wear almost any earring style except really long tassels or threader earrings that tend to over-elongate the features. One of the most striking looks for the oval face are earrings that are oval too – they’ll enhance your beautiful features without adding length to them.

3. Earrings for a heart-shaped face
Heart-shaped faces feature a pointed chin and a forehead that is wider than the cheeks. Earrings with elongated designs look very flattering on you if you have a heart-shaped face. This is because they highlight and define your cheekbones while accentuating the jaw line.

4. Earrings for a round face
Round faces are exactly as the name suggests – the widest part is across the cheekbones and this face shape narrows only a little at the forehead and towards the jaw line. If you have a round face, you’ll look best in square, angular or “spiky” styles that help balance the roundness and softness of your face. Geometric drop earrings are an especially good choice because they’ll help elongate your features.
