From the classic rhinestone stud earrings to thin metallic ones in geometric shapes, delicate earrings can add a touch of charm, class, and femininity to any outfit. Because of this, they’re often best left for special occasions, though some women may choose to wear a sturdier pair of delicate earrings every day.
No matter how many pairs you own, though, and whatever their shape, some earrings are a better fit for one occasion over certain others. And while you really can’t go along with a simple pair of stud earrings, knowing how to pick a pair to complement your outfit will pay off in the long run. That said, here are a few examples to help you on your styling journey.
Delicate Studs On a First Date
The first date with someone certainly counts as a special occasion. You want to look your best, but not overly dressy, especially if it’s a simple dinner date at a not-so-fancy restaurant. Try pairing some rhinestone studs with a nice top, skinny jeans, and your favourite pair of comfy shoes, and you have one simple but feminine outfit that can take you from dinner to a walk in the park without having to look out of place.
If you don’t have rhinestone studs, any pair of stud earrings will have a similar effect. If you have long hair and aren’t planning to tie it up, make sure you choose a pair that will be visible through your lovely locks.
Drop Earrings for Celebrations
If you’re getting together with your family and friends to celebrate something – someone’s graduation, for example, or a birthday – you’ll want to be able to have fun without feeling something tugging at your earlobes.
That’s why delicate drop earrings are perfect for such occasions. With how light they are, even small dangling earrings won’t distract you from the celebration. You can choose a pair with small gems hanging from the hooks, or ones with a slightly bigger gem shaped like a teardrop and surrounded by smaller stones. White or transparent gems are a good choice, but you can also pick gem earrings whose colour will complement your eye colour or skin tone.
Delicate Earrings for a Wedding
Whether you’re a guest, a bridesmaid, or a bride, you can’t go wrong with wearing delicate earrings to a wedding. It’s anything that goes for this occasion; you just have to remember to wear the right earring style for your outfit. If you’re a guest or a bridesmaid, you’ll also want to make sure you don’t upstage the bride.
A simple dress means you can add details with jewellery. Wear earrings in geometric shapes made of gold, silver, or bronze (depending on your skin tone), or mimic the overall feel of the rest of your jewellery.
If your dress is detailed, though – it has beading, embroidery, or has some parts made of lace – you don’t want your jewellery to clash with it or make your outfit look too busy. A simple pair of delicate earrings will suffice in this case.
