Earrings the first piece of jewellery worn and owned by most women.  They are an essential part of our everyday outfits. Earrings not only enhance our earlobes but actually play a pivotal role in our overall look.
  Earrings can be described by shape, backs and also specifically which suit your face. You can refer to earrings as per face and to earback for finding out your ear-mate. But for now here’s information on types and which outfits they go with:

4. Hoops: made popular in the 70s but have never gone out of fashion since. As the name suggests these are circular ring earrings which come with latch hooks or points which seamlessly go in like a loop.
Started off as simple metal circles but now come in variety of colours, metals, filgireed or even jewel encrusted options.
Best with: all types of outfits but depends on the size and glitziness. Diamond hoops make a style statement with formal outfits or simple ones with casual or work wear. Try a jewel encrusted hoop to go with your stonework saree or cocktail dress instead of the regular drop earrings.

Rules to keep in mind :
a) If big earrings then no necklace.
b) Have to be worn to balance the outfit not compete with it.
c) Do not always have to be coordinated with other jewelry.
d) Do not wear fabric earrings formally.
e) Angular face shapes ( square, oval, diamond, heart)  should opt for round or abstract earrings to add softness.
f) Round face shapes should opt for long straighter earrings as they add more lines for creating bone structure.
   Thus, earrings can make or break your overall look. Choose your earrings carefully so they should be complimentary to the colours or a style statement. Keep an open mind, mix styles and expirement and show off your style knowledge.
