A mini guide to clip-on earrings for men
One of the most important accessories for any girl is earrings. Many crossdressers do not have their ears pierced as they may not be able to do so for various reasons. That’s where male clip-on earrings come into play. Clip-on earrings for men are a means to an end when the time comes to dress en femme. Glamour Boutique knows what an important part clip-on earrings play and we plan accordingly, offering a variety of earrings for all our girls out there. Whether it’s a pair of clip-on pearl earrings for an elegant look or some everyday earrings, we’ve got you covered. Let’s find you some earrings that will have you looking amazing.
How to wear clip-on earrings?
If you’re completely new to wearing clip-on earrings, you’ll want to know how to wear them! You need to locate the clasp at the top or on the back of the earrings. Open the clasp. Pull down your earlobe slightly so the skin is taught, then position the open clasp around the earlobe. Close it whilst still holding your earlobe. This technique should also help to minimize any discomfort as the skin acts as a cushion around the clasp.
How to stop clip-on earrings from hurting
Sometimes, especially if you end up wearing your clip-on earrings for long periods of time, they can become a little sore, or even start to slip off. You can avoid both these things by purchasing some silicone protectors which attach to the earrings. The type you need will depend on the style of the clasp, but you can purchase pads or cushions to help with slippage and discomfort.
Choosing clip-on earrings
What’s the occasion?
Where will you be going today? What will you be doing? Your destination can help dictate your earrings. Are you going to lunch and some shopping with the girls? A less flashy earring would do the trick. If you are going to a dinner party or a more upscale event, try a nice elegant style of earrings – clip-on dangle earrings for men are a great choice. If you are out at a bar or casual dinner, a pair of large, dangle clip-on earrings may not be your best choice. You should find a style that matches your destination and complements your look and you will be good to go.
Have you picked an outfit?
Many girls will try and match their earrings with their outfit. For example, if you’re choosing bright, bold clip-on earrings, you’ll want to make sure they go with your outfit as a whole. Certain colors may clash, but safe outfit colors such as black and/or white will go with any piece of statement jewelry. An alternative is to choose clear crystal, black or rhinestone clip-on earrings as these will go with any outfit color.
If you will be going to a more formal event and wearing a black ball gown or a cocktail dress, a smaller earring like this Black Crystal w/ Pave trim would be an excellent choice. A more casual look like jeans and a t-shirt would match well with men’s clip-on hoop earrings.
What is your style?
Are you a flashy girl? Are you more reserved? Your clip on earrings should match your personality. Our imitation clip-on pearl earrings would be ideal for dinner with friends or a date night. If you’re wearing a low-cut ball gown or a floor-length dress, one of our matching sets (earrings and necklace) would be a great look to match the outfit. An understated look is always good when you’re not sure or if you are someone who doesn’t like to draw too much attention to themselves with their style. On the flip side, a more elaborate style is great if you’re a flashy girl and you want to show off a little. The great news is, no matter your style, there’s a perfect pair of clip-on earrings for you.
Casual men’s clip-on earrings perfect for every day
It’s always good to have multiple pairs of clip-on earrings that are casual enough for everyday use. The everyday look is a more understated look and your choices should match that. Hoop earrings are always a great choice for everyday use as they can go with just about anything. While imitation pearl clip-on earrings are just as good in more upscale scenarios, as they are when you’re in jeans and a blazer. Classy Rhinestone earrings are a staple of our clip-on earrings collection that can match any smart-casual outfit or evening dress any day or night of the week.
