How to Choose the Perfect Earrings to Match Your Dress

Choose the Perfect Earrings to Match Your Dress

It's your time to shine! You have a big event coming up, like a Holiday Season party, wedding, or other special gathering. You want all eyes to be on you when you walk in a room. This means putting together the perfect outfit, just down to the jewelry. You want your earrings to complete your outfit, not distract from it.  

Choose the Perfect Earrings to Match Your Dress

In order to look fabulous, you can't have all of the pieces of your outfit fighting for attention. This may come off as "too much" or garrish. You want your ensemble to be chic and the jewelry to be subtle. Does this mean plain? No way! You simply need to find the perfect pair of earrings to go along with your chosen dress. A few tips to ensure they expertly pair together include:

Tip #1 Make sure it matches the occasion. Before you can match the pair to your dress, be sure the earrings match where you will be and what you will be doing. Your choice of jewelry for church on Christmas Eve candlelight service probably wouldn't be the same selection as an evening sipping cocktails at a piano bar. Make sure to consider where you're going, what you'll be doing, and how the jewelry comes off to onlookers. If you're going to a Holiday Party, the "Catch a Falling Snowflake" Crystal Snowflake Button Earrings will match just about any dress you're planning to wear!

Tip #2 If your dress is busy, keep your earrings simple. You want your earrings to compliment your style instead of distract from it. Loud and ornate jewelry can muddy a busy print, no matter how great the earrings are by themselves. If you're wearing a bold printed dress, you'll want to pair it with something like our "What A Stud III" Crystal Button Earring. They are gorgeous and chic, without being too over the top.

Tip #3 Highlight your face. One of the best things about statement earrings is that they can frame your face in a fabulous way. Take into account the shape of your face and which pair will do the most to bring out the sparkle in your eyes. Ladies with heart-shaped faces, for example, might consider drop earrings that don't taper at the bottom. If you have an oval face, you should consider studs and triangular earrings to show off their cheekbones. We absolutely love the "Geometric Stud" Crystal Triangle Button Earrings for this. 

Tip #4 Consider your skin tone. If you're wearing a dress that shows a lot of skin, you'll want to take into consideration how the metal of the earrings look with your skin tone. Silver is a standard metal that illuminates most natural tones. Gold jewelry goes especially well with darker hair and skin. Cooler skin tones go well with gems that are red, purple, and blue. Someone with light skin and blue eyes is sure to steal the show wearing our "The Devil Wears Heidi" Crystal Dangle Earring in Blue. This is a great example of letting the earrings take center stage, with your dress as the backdrop.

Tip #5 Pair a black dress with something bold. Every woman has a little black dress she simply adores. You're going to want to pair yours with earrings that take your dress from simple to chic. Your black dress will do well with bright gold jewelry or onyx gemstones. The "Sparkling Sensation" Crystal Deco Drop Earrings is perfect! This bold pair of earrings features a mélange of paradise shine crystals with a dangle drop design. The gemstones sparkle with shades of purple, blue, and green that boasts a different glimmer at every angle.
