How to Wear Clip Earrings Comfortably and Stylishly

May 31, 2023

Clip-on earrings are the perfect solution to accessorizing any outfit, especially if you don’t have pierced ears. Clip-ons have a bad rap; they can be uncomfortable and even painful to wear for extended periods of time. We have some tips to help you escape that pain when wearing clip-on earrings. We can make them a stylish addition to an outfit–a “no hurt” solution to adding some glamour to your style.

How to Make Clip-On Earrings Not Hurt

Clip-on earrings can be uncomfortable because they apply pressure to your earlobes. However, there are several ways to reduce the pressure and make them more comfortable to wear.

  • • Choose clip-on earrings with soft pads: Many clip-on earrings come with small pads on the back of the clip. These pads help to cushion your earlobes and reduce discomfort. If your clip-on earrings don't have pads, you can easily purchase adhesive foam pads and attach them yourself.
  • • Adjust the tightness of the clip: Many clip-on earrings are adjustable, which means you can tighten or loosen the clip to your liking. Loosen the clip slightly to reduce pressure on your earlobes.
  • • Wear lightweight clip-on earrings: Heavy earrings can be painful to wear, even for those with pierced ears. Opt for lightweight clip-on earrings to reduce the pressure on your earlobes.

How to Put on Clip-On Earrings

Putting on clip-on earrings can be a bit tricky, especially if you've never worn them before. Here's a step-by-step guide to help you put them on correctly:

  • • Hold the clip-on earring by the front and back, with the clip facing you.
  • • Open the clip by gently pressing down on the back lever. You should hear a clicking sound when the clip opens.
  • • Place the front of the earring on your earlobe and then gently clip the back of the earring onto your earlobe. Be sure to position the clip in the middle of your earlobe for maximum comfort.
  • • Adjust the tightness of the clip to your liking. You want it to be tight enough to stay on, but not so tight that it hurts your earlobe.

How to Wear Clip-On Earrings

Now that you know how to put on clip-on earrings, it's time to talk about how to wear them with style. Here are some tips to help you rock your clip-on earrings:

  • • Pair them with your outfit: Clip-on earrings come in a variety of styles and colors, so choose a pair that complements your outfit. If you're wearing a bold outfit, opt for a pair of simple clip-on earrings. If you're wearing a simple outfit, choose a pair of statement clip-ons to add some flair.
  • • Mix and match: With clip on earrings, you can easily stash a second pair in your purse. A quick change at your desk, and you’ll find a completely different look for your ensemble.
  • • Wear them for any occasion: Clip-on earrings are versatile and can be worn for any occasion. Wear them to work, to a fancy event (pairs great with cashmere), or even just for a casual day out.

Clip-on earrings are a great accessory for those without pierced ears, but even for those just wanting a different earring look.
