We’re here to share all our tried and tested styling Drop Earring styling secrets, from those freshly rolled out of bed days to dressed up to the nines kind of nights.
The number one side effect of purchasing earrings at V is the pressing urge to wear them all day and all night and to every occasion. Investing in high quality pieces leaves you wondering if doing the weekly shop warrants layering up your lobes and realising you have a problem when you catch your sparkling ears in the reflection of the gym mirror.
But to help you realise you’re not alone, we’re here to share all our tried and tested styling secrets, from those freshly rolled out of bed days to dressed up to the nines kind of nights.
WHAT'S YOUR TYPE?
Before even thinking about how you’re going to wear drop earrings you need to first decide what type of drop earrings work best for you. Just like you need to keep both your shape and style in mind when shopping for your next trusty pair of blue jeans, when shopping for earrings if you really want to go the extra mile, it's worth bearing your face shape in mind.
For round faces, opt for longer, angular, statement earrings like the Jen Earrings to highlight your jaw and add length to your look.
For longer faces you can play around with dimensions with pieces like the Uma Earrings with their circular base and delicate top offering both a sleek and bold edge.
PAIRING UP YOUR PAIRS OF DROP EARRINGS
If you’re ever unsure of which jewellery pieces or types of earrings to pair together it’s always a safe bet to trust the experts, whether that’s heading over to our insta, scanning our blog posts or looking to your favourite fashion blogger, a bit of inspo never hurt.
Always on hand to remind us that sometimes even the experts can use a bit of inspiration, one of our favourite fashion bloggers The Little Magpie recently shared a dreamy holiday pic pairing up the Tyra Hoop Earrings with the Iris Gold Hoops and Charms, and indirectly added both pairs of earrings to a lot of our baskets V HQ…
STYLING THE EVERY DAY
Just because your outfit is casual doesn’t mean your jewels have to be. For 9-5 office days, lazy afternoons and everything in between, styling your pieces right means you never need to leave your earrings at home.
Our selection of hoops use a contemporary take on deco designs to re-imagine the ultimate staple, the classic hoop earrings. Both The Halle Hoop Earrings and the Brooke Forward Hoops are on hand (or in ear) to prove casual doesn’t have to mean simple with their intricate angles and detailed ridges, on hand to level up even the most casual of outfits.
ALL NIGHT LONG LOOKS
For golds that match your gladrags or the ultimate luxe looks, look no further than our newest collection, The September Edit, full of all the pieces you need to ease yourself into the season of celebration.
If you’re searching for the ultimate statement piece, the Anne Earrings have got you covered. Made up of cascading ridges and delicately cut out geometric shapes, the Anne’s never go unnoticed. For a more delicate approach, the hanging chains of the Liv Earrings are effortlessly intriguing.
