Best earrings for a triangle face shape

The most underrated tip when it comes to styling your jewellery pieces is considering your face shape. Most face shapes fall into any of the following generalised categories; oval, oblong, diamond, round, square, triangle, rectangle and heart. For most people, it would also be easy to make out which category they fall into and each has its own distinctive characteristics that make styling accessories like earrings much easier. 

For now, we’ll be focussing on the best earring options for people with triangle face shape. To start off, let us understand the triangle face shape characteristics better. A person with a triangle face shape has a narrower forehead and a wider jaw, and their features are typically more angular. When styling earrings, we want to maintain that and choose pieces that will not add bulk and not widen the jaw. We want to focus on earrings that are longer and slimmer. 

Here are our top earring recommendations for those with the triangle shaped face

Hoop Earrings 

Hoop earrings are one the most versatile pieces of jewellery you can own. They can either elevate a look or they can simplify an outfit, as per your wish. The best part is that they also suit the triangle face shape. You can opt for longer hoops that create vertical length on your face. You can also select hoops based on the material like gold plated or American diamond, whichever would match the aesthetic that you’re inclined towards. You can also opt for hoops that come with a small charm in the shape of a teardrop, as both of these shapes are bound to look great on with your face shape. 

Danglers Earrings 

As a person with a triangle shaped face, focussing on lengthening your face and creating that kind of visual interest is the way to go. You can opt for longer, sleeker and slimmer dangler earrings. Whatever your aesthetic and need, we’re confident you’ll find the right fit for your face shape. You can also explore danglers with semi precious and precious gemstones like rubies and emeralds for a more rich and decadent look.  

Stud Earrings 

Another classic but versatile piece is the studs. As someone with a triangle face shaped person you can choose to don studs that are slightly longer and not round. You can opt for a good pair of simple American diamond studs that look elegant and polished no matter what the occasion is. Stud earrings are great for everyday wear, whether it's for the office or to college. We recommend investing in a few high quality gold plated studs that you can regularly cycle through. 

Chandelier Earrings 

For a more glamorous look, you can choose to style chandelier earrings with your outfits. This style of earrings works really well for more celebratory events like weddings, events and parties. You can style any kind of outfits and to glam up the entire look, you can accessorise it with danglers. These look high fashion and it instantly adds another dimension to your look. 

Teardrop Earrings 

We understand that the glam look may not be for everyone and we assure you, we haven’t forgotten about you. If you prefer a minimal and dainty look, we believe choosing earrings with the teardrop shape is the right choice for you. The teardrop shape is one of the most poised and elegant shapes that you can accessorise yourself with. It gives you the most subtle yet ethereal look. We’re sure you can rock this style of earrings and never be disappointed with the outcome. 

Styling earrings is a craft, it looks easy but only you know the thought that goes behind it. There are so many things to consider- the occasion, the outfit, the mood, your personal style and preferences. Styling your earrings based on the shape of your face is one of the most foolproof ways to ensure a seamless and effortless styling look. For the triangle face shape, just keep in mind to not create a vertical visual interest with your earring choices instead of more horizontal pieces that will end up adding bulk to the lower part of your face, making it more pear-like. Ultimately, when you also focus on choosing pieces that make you feel and look good, you’ll shine, no matter where you go.
