It won’t surprise you at all to know that we are big earring fans! We love that something so small can make such a big impact on an outfit. A perfectly chosen pair of earrings adds so much extra poise and polish to your look.
When it comes to making that perfect choice, there are all sorts of factors to keep in mind. We think one of the most pressing ones is how you’re wearing your hair! 
Below we’ve created a mini cheat sheet for hairstyle and earring combos that will always work beautifully.

Beachy waves and chandelier earrings

If you’re wearing your hair loose and tousled, we think a pair of chandelier earrings can add a wonderfully bohemian edge. Think something like these Reeves and Reeves Magic Number Earrings or these John Garland Taylor Double Reeds Earrings

Chic up-do and barely-there drop earrings

When you’ve opted for a sophisticated swept back look, we think delicate drop earrings are the best way forward. These will bring a little extra detail to your face without detracting  from the simple lines of your hair. These Claudia Bradbury Peregrina Grey Pearl Teardrop Earrings or these Amapola Jet Drop Earrings would be ideal. 

Messy bun and strand earrings

A big, bold up do like a messy bun looks gorgeous with earrings that have a bit of length to them. Strand earrings like these Bernd Wolf Labradorite Drop Earrings or these Tara Kirkpatrick Silver and Gold Stick Drop Earrings would look great.

Carefully straightened and simple studs

If you’re wearing your hair straight and down, we think a simple stud earring creates a stylishly minimalist look. Opt for something like these Pretty Wild Jewellery Handmade Textured Solid Gold Stud Earrings, or these Orlap Iron Pyrites Small Square Studs.

Side pony and fun dangly earrings

A side ponytail is an excellent choice for a cute off-duty look. We think it looks great paired with a fun pair of dangly earrings like these Reeves & Reeves Cat and Mouse Earrings or these Two Skies Silver Oak Leaf Earrings
