Types Of Earrings To Use and Avoid When Wearing a Mask During This Pandemic

Have you noticed how your earrings get caught up in your mask throughout the day? Read on to find out which styles of earrings work best with a mask!

By the start of 2020, we never expected that the newest and most essential accessory in town would be the face mask. As style enthusiasts, we are willing to adapt to this change and try to look as fashionable as possible. Did you know that because the masks draw attention to our face, it would be the best opportunity to showcase our beloved earrings? Yes, you can continue to be safe in public while still looking stylish! However, taking your mask on and off puts your earrings at a greater risk of being lost or damaged. So before you incorporate those earrings into your mask look, you should know first which ones you should wear and which ones you should avoid.

2 Types Of Earrings To Avoid While Wearing A Mask

Oversized Hoop Earrings

Wearing oversized hoop earrings with a mask is a no-no. Because of its size, it can easily get caught up in the mask strap and it would make it hard for you to remove your mask. It gets worse if your hoop earrings have no closures in the back because you may be wearing them for a day and realize that you have just lost one of them.

Dangle Earrings

A more complex version of the drop earrings, dangle earrings are also an earring type to avoid if you are wearing a face mask. Because they hang down vertically below the ear and have a larger and bulkier design, you may find it tangled with your mask strap. Of course, you wouldn't want to fuss all day about your earrings!

3 Mask-Friendly Types of Earrings

Stud Earrings

A new must-have during this pandemic, stud earrings with a screw back closure are the most recommended type of earrings to be worn on repeat.

Diamond stud earrings are among the most popular styles right now, so don't hesitate to get a pair for yourself!

Pearl Earrings

An elegant and sophisticated iteration of the stud earrings, the pearl earrings can be your new favorite type of earrings if you find diamond stud earrings to be too flashy and sparkly.

Huggie Earrings

If you are a fan of hoop earrings but can't wear those oversized ones, then take the modest route by wearing huggie earrings. Huggie earrings sit close to the ear and their size is just right. They don't tangle with your mask strap and they are equally as stylish as hoop earrings.
