Edited by Vanessa Alexandra Avisado, Eng, Graeme, Lynn and 3 others

From the catwalk to the sidewalk, an ensemble will never be complete without accessories. Like the famous peanut butter and jelly combo, an outfit becomes awe-inspiring with the right accessories here and there.


The celebs seen on TV or models in ads seem to effortlessly be chic with the right accessories. However, choosing can be tricky for most women who do not have an eye for fashion. This can be an issue because when accessories are chosen carefully, an aspired look can be achieved. Keep reading to discover the rules of thumb when it comes to choosing the right accessories.


Before learning how to choose accessories, one must first understand what accessories are. Accessories constitute everything else in an ensemble besides the apparel or clothes. This includes jewelry, shoes, bags, belts, and scarves, as well as hats, sunglasses and the like. These help personalize an ensemble.


Importance of the Right Accessory

Anyone can slap on a bracelet, necklace, shoes and sunglasses, but it takes an eye to pull everything together. Since not everyone can afford designer and one-of-a-kind accessory pieces, choosing the right accessory for your ensemble is the next best thing. Accessories can make or break your look, so being creative, and at the same time attentive, will do you a world of good. If that is not enough, you will look effortlessly chic every time you step out of your home, ready to meet anyone, anytime.

Starting from the head down, here are some jewelry options.

The Right Earrings for Face Shapes

Hoops, studs, dangling and chandelier are some types of earrings you probably have in your jewelry box. Choosing the right earring may take more than colors, ensemble and occasion. Did you know that there are earrings that look better on certain face shapes? Here is a guide.

  1. 1
    Round/Circular Face Shape
    Go for long and angular earrings. Steer clear of round dangling earrings and small studs. Round shaped faces are usually youthful looking. The face shape can be complemented with long earrings as mentioned, so try long earrings with something edgy on the tip, like triangles for a casual look.

    Oval Face Shape
    Almost anything can be rocked by the oval faced gal. However, avoid earrings that go past the chin, since this makes your face longer. Try large studs or dangling earrings for your different looks.

    Heart Face Shape
    Choose earrings with an opposing shape to your face, something that is wider on the base than the top. Avoid earrings that are the same shape as your face which is detailed on top and light on the bottom. Some recommended earring shapes are triangle and tear drop.
