Some popular styles are: wire hooks, huggies, English lock, chandelier, teardrop, hoop and the drop earring.

  1. I love your dress! I am definitely in need of some more earrings. Your tips for finding the right earrings on spot on! Thanks for sharing!

  2. I definitely have too many earrings, but they all fit my skin colourwise and they fit to one or the other outfit. 😉 Some would say “can one have too many earrings …?” Not really … although I said otherwise at the beginning … 😉 😀

    Your dress and your earrings are gorgeous!!!

  3. I also think these large and ‘statement’ earrings look great with the simple cut of your dress (and vice-versa, i.e. simple earrings with a more embellished or accessorised outfit).

  4. I wish my ears didn’t reject earrings 🙈 maybe when I cut my hair short (in a few years) I’ll get back into wearing clip-ons!

  5. Your blogs are super sweet and different and helpful too! Hope to see some great posts from you soon…
