First comes the best selection of shoulder duster earrings, then comes the ‘How To Wear Shoulder Duster Earrings’ blog post. You know how we roll here. Take a look at these five tips on how to wear the shoulder duster earrings I recommended in the last post…

Best Hairstyle For Shoulder Duster Earrings

Putting your hair up is a no-brainer when it comes to shoulder duster earrings. You can also wear your hair down with shoulder duster earrings, unless you have bouncy curly hair. Rambunctious curly hair can get tangled with the elaborate earrings. Straight hair, short hair, or slightly wavy hair is best for shoulder duster earrings.

Best Neckline for Shoulder Duster Earrings

Skip the ruffles, cowl necks, loose knit sweaters, and emphasized shoulder garments. They all interfere or get caught on long earrings. Skin is in for this one. Pictured you can see I am wearing a sleeveless boat neck frock that allows the earrings to touch my skin and not the garment. Strapless is another fantastic look with shoulder duster earrings. Spaghetti straps and off the shoulder looks also look yummy with the lengthy earrings. Although all these mentioned are about skin, you can also wear any top or dress that lies close to your skin and neck. Even a fitted turtleneck should work, but that is best with hair up. Otherwise it gets too crowded around your neck and face.

How To Wear Shoulder Duster Earrings With A Necklace

I prefer no necklace with shoulder duster earrings. It crowds your neck and shortens your look overall. If you are going to wear a necklace, a thin chained choker would be the only logical option for me. I also prefer minimal to no other earrings in the ear with these statement earrings. A super thin bar or teensy hoop in your second hole will be edgy, but anything else feels overdone. Instead of wearing a necklace or filling your ear holes, sport bracelets and/or rings with shoulder duster earrings.

Note: I know in the previous post I mentioned to avoid earrings that actually do touch your shoulders and the earrings pictured on me are definitely touching my shoulders. The reason why I recommend skipping earrings that actually touch your shoulders is because of these earrings. They are utterly fabulous, but they are always twisting, turning, and sitting wrong. Most literal shoulder duster earrings do this and it looks messy the majority of the time.  You wouldn’t believe how many images we had to take to get good shots of these delicious, yet high-maintenance earrings. So, again, it is best to wear earrings that almost dust your shoulders, not literally dust them.
