As the temperature gets higher, our calendar is gradually filled with different kinds of events. Whether it’s a music festival or a wedding ceremony, when it comes to jewelry, dropped earring is a great finishing touch for your outfit without competing with your beautiful garment.
Today, I picked seven of my favorite looks that incorporated dropped earring. These stylish ladies (showed above), ranging from 24 to 46 years old, with different hairstyles, face shapes, dress choices, and most importantly, personal styles, sure can teach us a thing or two about how to choose and wear drop earrings.
An off-shoulder dress calls for earrings instead of necklace. I love this understated pair that Natalya Rovner chose: the size suits her small oval shaped face without competing with her mask; the hint of gold around the drop lends just right amount of lux glamour to her LBD.

Amanda Seyfried is one of my favorite actresses. She has a unique innocent sexiness. Many of her looks reflect this attractive dichotomy. The look below is no exception: while her braid and lace on the dress are sweet and feminine, the black square drop earrings, winged eyeliner and leather material on her dress add edginess to the whole look.

20s and early 30s are great stages to be experimental. Here a linear crystal earrings along with Nina Dobrev’s dynamic pony tail showed her youthful side. Compared to a normal colorful floral version, a black and white printed dress add touch of edgy flair while nailed the hot color trend.

Halle Berry is known for her understated glamour. She has an ideal oval face shape that is great for all kinds of earrings. Here, the right size black drop ones complimente her black embellished dress. The color and simple silhouette suit her modern, chic style perfectly.

Orange/gold is a great combo: gold really brings out the warmth and optimism of the color orange. We don’t need a necklace to draw attention away from the beautiful pleats and drapes on this silk top. A pair of elaborate gold earrings (like this one) echos the refined glamour. The teardrop shape is universal flattering.

The last two looks below from Lily Collins and Miranda Kerr are for the most glamorous moments. when our dresses are delicate lace or sumptuous embroidered chiffon, choose earrings that brings volume (to matches the atmosphere), but in the same color family with our dress, so the two won’t compete.
