Style Tips When Wearing Bamboo Hoops
Curly or straight, up or down, there are lots of options to think about when it comes to hair styles. Here are our top tips to consider when choosing which bamboo earrings to wear. If you’re going with a curly look, a beautiful pair of large bamboo doorknockers would balance your look perfectly and show off those glossy curls. If you’ve got a short bob haircut, the larger the bamboo earrings, the better.
Maybe you’re keen to get that serious, edgy, 80s look? We’d suggest tying your hair up in a ponytail or top bun to frame your prominent earrings. Don’t be misled about bamboo earrings. They are brilliant to wear to a 80s themed party, but equally when worn in the right way, they’re also a great accessory for an everyday look. Modelling a slightly smaller pair of earrings would also suit a tied up or hair down style.
To help you decide which earrings are best for you our top ten list of bamboo earrings give you a choice for every occasion!
When it comes to makeup and bamboo earrings, we suggest that the ‘less is more look’ is the way to go! Defining your eyes with black pencil or liquid eyeliner, paired with full lash black mascara will complement your bamboo earrings perfectly. If you’re struggling to get that fuller eyelash look, why not try some fake eyelashes. They may be fiddly to put on initially but soon you’ll be a pro at attaching them to your eyelashes and transforming your gorgeous lashes. They’ll give you that extra depth so no one will be able to take their eyes off you.
Again, when it comes to eye shadow, foundation and blusher, less is more with this style. You want your makeup to effortlessly enhance your earrings, not take centre stage. Let’s also not forget lipstick. Shimmer gloss, red, pink or natural, take your pick. Any lipstick would go well with a pair of bamboo earrings.
Stay away from over accessorising and complicating the neckline. What you want to create is an elegant flow from your hair, to your face, earrings and then neckline. By covering up your neckline with necklaces it could take away from your gorgeous neckline! If you feel happy having a lower neckline than this will extenuate your neck (and will show off a little cleavage). A wide neckline or gypsy style top would also work well.
When it comes to additional accessories our top tip is to be selective. We’re not saying don’t accessorise with other jewellery, just don’t over complicate your outfit. With a choice of necklaces, bangles, rings, (the list is endless!) you could easily get carried away and overdo it.
One thing you’ll discover from our top 10 list is that they’re very versatile. Whether you prefer modelling a sexy black top with a tight pair of jeans, a fitted blazer, tailored trousers and stilettos or a cute bikini with a sarong, you can wear your earrings with a range of outfits. That’s one of the many reasons we love our bamboo earrings!
