Tips For Accessorizing With Earrings

Statement earrings are all the rage these days. An especially popular type of earring is the tassel earring. As you can tell by the name, these earrings feature a cute tassel, often in varying sizes, that is meant to stand out and draw attention to your ear lobes.

Statement earrings offer a great way to easily and expertly accessorize as long as you know how to wear and style them.

If you want to rock tassel earrings—or any other statement earrings—with style, but aren't quite sure how, don't worry. You just have to follow a few fashionable tips.

Don't Make Your Outfit Too Elaborate

A good rule of thumb to follow is to only have one part of an outfit that really stands out or draws attention. If you have more than one, you're likely to look gaudy instead of fashionable, which is the last thing you want.

With tassel earrings or other large earrings, you don't want to wear anything elaborate or overly patterned. Instead, keep the focus on your earrings by keeping the rest of your outfit simple but stylish. Go for a nicely fitted top in a neutral color or a color that matches your earrings—a simple skirt or set of pants on bottom, and some nice shoes, and you're all set.

Consider Where You're Going

Anytime you decide what to wear or how to accessorize your outfit, you also have to think about where you're wearing it. Typically, tassel earrings or other types of costume-type jewelry are going to be worn to more casual or fun events.

However, if you want to dress them up for something more formal, the key is to keep the rest of your outfit very dressy and appropriate. That way, you can still add in a fun statement piece while ensuring that you look appropriate for the occasion at hand.

Skip the Necklace

One final tip to keep in mind is that, when you wear statement earrings, you probably don't want to wear a necklace as well.

When you are wearing attention-grabbing earrings, there's no need to muddy things up with a necklace as well. That's just too much going on up top. If you absolutely have to wear a necklace, choose something simple so that your outfit doesn't end up being overwhelming.

If you can follow these tips and keep style always in the forefront of your mind, you and your earrings are sure to look amazing every time. However, if you have questions, you can always visit a local boutique such as Forward Fashions to get some good advice.
