It's time to flaunt the best accessory! Whatever may be your face type, there is always an earring to compliment your face

There are some general rules that we delve into while selecting the right earring for your face type. Shalini Mehta, Apparel Designer & Film Stylist, says, "Most Indian women have an oval or round face. Straight edgy earrings are best suited for them. People with a heart-shape face could also go in for the straight ones, since it adds length. Further, square faced women could go in for rounded, oval accessories which are also very trendy."

Oval face

You have the most versatile face shape and you can sport almost anything! Soft shapes like teardrops, pearls, studs and ovals are the most recommended. Remember to choose something which will be in proportion to your head size and body scale.

Round face

You should wear longer earrings which will add some angle to your face. Angular, long and lean earrings are the best. Dangles, ovals and bold angular studs would also suit your face type.

Heart - shaped face

Your face is more similar to the oval one, but is narrower below the cheekbones and pointed at the chin with a wider forehead. You should opt for earrings which are wider at the bottom. Ovals and teardrops are the best ones for you. You can also sport the pyramid style earrings for a trendier look.

Square face

You should opt for earrings which are longer than they are wide. Earrings with curves at the bottom, small circular earrings, large oval shapes are the best for you.
