A lot of us had to go through a lot of hurdles as teenagers in order to convince our mothers to let us get our ears pierced. Some of us who got our ears pierced early on got used to the process and then stopped bothering with buying different types of earrings and others might have a huge selection of earrings to choose from. Now, that we are adults, we realize that we cannot be expected to wear the same type of earring everywhere we go, especially when we are shifting between formal and casual events.
This is where we realize that we have to buy a few basic types of earrings that we can wear according to different occasions. Now, the first thing to keep in mind when buying earrings is your own safety. Some people get infections and bad reactions from certain materials, so do not continue to wear an earring if you feel like you got a bad reaction from it. These people can only wear certain types of earrings that are made out of certain materials like silver.
Once you have determined what type of earrings suit you, you want to move ahead and buy a few basic types. Gold and silver colored earrings are a classic option and can be styled with any type of outfit, and for any occasion, making them very versatile as well. You can also buy a few basic colored ones like black earrings for women, earrings that have stones, hooped earrings and bigger or smaller statement pieces depending on your personal style and level of comfortable. At the end of the day, you want to buy earrings that are both comfortable to wear, and easy to style with different outfits as well, because there is no point in having earring that do not match anything you own.
