What Your Earrings Say About You

October 26, 2021

We used clothing items to express ourselves. When you pick an outfit, you are telling a story about yourself. Here’s what your earring choice says about you. 

1. Studs 

You don’t like wahala. You want to show off but not too much. Perfect for work or dates where you don’t want the person to call your number again. 

2. Hoop earrings 

Hoop earrings are worn by liberated women, especially those big ones that can double as a bangle or arm bracelet.

3. Drop earrings 

You’re stylish but like to keep it calm. When you wear drop earrings, you’re going for a silent killer look, and I stan.

4. Chandelier earrings 

Bold! You are trying to leave a statement in people’s minds. Chandelier earrings will have everyone asking where you got them from. Attention isn’t always a bad thing.

5. Dangle earrings 

Dangle earrings are like drop earrings, but they have more character. Dangle earrings say you have a unique sense of style, and you are not afraid to show it. Depending on the type you choose, they also tell of a desire to stand out.

They have this sense of superiority. It says, “I am here but do not talk to me because I will not respond.” Pair that with a bob wig and you might as well have a taser in your tiny bag

You know that saying, “Your eye don tear”. You have seen this world and you know that nothing dey inside. Add this to three other hoops and one industrial piercing across the top of your ear and it’s all over, Jackie.

You are the kind of person who goes to art exhibitions alone, posts faceless pictures on Instagram and drinks tequila straight before anything else on the menu. You talk with innuendoes and proverbs. Anyone who can’t catch your drift is not the target audience and you do not care for those. A girl after my heart.

There were no video calls then so we were always texting. In the third month of our relationship, she said she was travelling to Dubai for work and she wasn’t sure when she’d be back. She wanted to see me before she left. I told her I didn’t have money and she said she would sponsor the trip.
