How to Wear Stud Earrings


Stud earrings are small earrings that are just large enough to fit right over the holes in your pierced ears. There are a variety of studs that you can buy and wear, including diamonds, sterling silver, gold and plastic pieces (costume jewelry). There are various ways to match your outfits and hairstyles with the various types of stud earrings in your jewelry box.

  • Wear large diamond stud earrings (1 carat or higher) when you are going to a special event, like a dance or reception, preferably with a dress that shows off your shoulders and neck. Put your hair up into an elegant up-do so that the earrings won't be covered by strands of hair. Wear smaller diamond studs (1 carat or less) with semi-formal outfits (like slacks and boots) and pull your hair back into a simple bun or ponytail.

  • Wear sterling silver or gold stud earrings of any size with semi-casual outfits, like jeans and sneakers. Wear your hair down and pull it behind your ears, or if you have medium to long locks, pull them back over the tops of your ears and then put your hair into a tight ponytail.

  • Wear pearl stud earrings at very formal events like weddings, or to special ceremonies like sorority functions. This is another case where you should put your hair up, but it's also preferable to wear a more conservative dress that covers your arms and shoulders when you wear pearls.

  • Wear plastic stud earrings when you are coordinating with a fun and unusual casual outfit. For instance, these stud earrings are ideal if you're attending a party with a "punk rocker" theme. Coordinate the color of your plastic earrings with a headband, necklace, bracelet, belt or shoes. Make it obvious that the entire outfit coordinates with the color of your stud earrings.
