How to wear earrings for men

Watch, bracelets, necklace, rings … and earrings: men too wear a lot of jewelry. Just like women, they shape a look with jewelry chosen according to their tastes and style. However, men’s earrings are always difficult to choose and wear. They can be badly perceived, especially in the professional environment. And they can betray a look if they are poorly chosen. Here are some tips.


Above all, men’s earrings are about style … and self-confidence. If you are used to wearing jewelry, you will have no problem knowing which models suit you and how to match them with your outfits. But if you have never worn jewelry, let alone earrings, you will have to choose a pair in harmony with your style.

For example, if you display a rather rock, even gothic or punk look, consisting of black leather biker jacket, ripped jeans, studded boots and t-shirt with message, opt for Johnny Depp earrings: creoles, silver rings, nails in the shape of a horn, black crosses, triangular chips…

If you are more urban, with a trendy, even hipster look, opt for casual models that are easy to wear. Ear studs with rhinestones or diamonds can be very elegant and bring light to your outfit. For more discretion, choose models without stones and without brilliants, in reduced dimensions. The most daring can try out retractors, piercing or ear chains.

Most often, you will find men’s earrings like hoops or studs. They are available in white gold, even yellow gold, as well as in silver, stainless steel, wood, horn … these jewels are most often small.


The choice of your men’s earrings also depends on the shape of your face. Also consider wearing models that will not be hidden or hindered by your haircut or beard. Also tune your curls together if you have multiple ear piercings. Or, play on the contrasts of shapes and styles, by mismatching jewelry for example.

In absolute terms, it is advisable to choose earrings that will not bother you on a daily basis. Especially if you’re not used to wearing them. The movements, but also the clothes or the hair, can very quickly cause you annoyances.


If you want to choose earrings for yourself or a man around you, we advise you to pay attention to these few points:

Tastes and habits: prefer discreet jewelry for a man who is not used to wearing it. Otherwise, choose jewelry that echoes the ones you already own.

The metals: yellow gold is often more easily worn by women. Men generally prefer more discreet metals, precious or not, such as silver, white gold, steel, wood …

The stones: here too, it’s a story of taste and style. But most often, the stones are chosen small, especially when it is a diamond or a zirconium oxide.

The zize: we recommend favoring small earrings, those that do not exceed the lower limit of the lobe too much. But nothing prevents you from opting for bulky and showy models.

The clasp: you are not used to wearing earrings? Opt for studs, easy to install. If you do not have pierced ears, you can wear magnetic loops, to screw, clips …
