2. Piercings vs. Clippings

 

As a crossdresser man, should you pierce your ears, or should you put on clippings? The truth is, the answer to this entirely depends on you and your personality. There is no wrong choice. Here are a few details about piercings and clippings to help you make the best choice.

 

1. Piercings

 

Introduction to Rings and Earrings

 

In order to wear piercings, you need to get your ears pierced, whereby a needle gun is used to make tiny holes through your earlobes or other locations on the ear so that you can wear earrings. Some of the pros and cons of ear piercing include:

 

Pros

Piercing your ears can increase your confidence and make you appear more feminine
• Earrings are excellent for completing stylish looks
• Ear piercings are a form of self-expression
• Piercings are used to express some cultural traditions
• Ear piercings allow you to wear any type of earrings

Cons

• One may develop an allergic reaction if they wear earrings made from certain types of metal, such as brass or nickel.
• Some people develop an infection after piercing their ears in the form of swelling, redness, discharge, and pain.
• If pierced with contaminated equipment, one may pick up blood diseases such as HIV, tetanus, hepatitis B, and C.
• One is always at a risk of having the earrings ripped out accidentally or on purpose if they get into a fight.

 

2. Clippings

If you really don’t want to pierce your ears, then clippings are the safer option. Clip-on earrings are worn by attaching them to the ears. This is done by applying pressure on both sides of the ear lobes.

 

Pros

• Clippings are very convenient because they are easy to put on and can be quickly removed.
• With clip-on earrings, you do not need to endure any piercing or pain.
• Unlike piercing earrings, clip-on earrings are safer because they don’t risk infections or allergic reactions.
• Clip-on earrings are easily available in most stores.

Cons

• Clippings can easily be stolen from your ears, especially if you are in a crowded area
• Some clip-on earrings may press the ear lobes too tightly, thereby making one feel uneasy or uncomfortable around the earlobes
• Clip-on earrings are limited in size because they cannot hold too much weight, thereby making it difficult to find bold statement clip-on earrings.

 

3. Crossdresser earring options

 

Here are some of the best earring options for crossdresser beginners.

 

Studs

One of the best earrings for crossdressers especially after piercing the ears, are studs. Studs are convenient and manageable because the fastener goes straight into the earlobe, thereby reducing the risk of irritation. A stud earring is usually small in size in the form of a tiny gemstone or a dot. It is also possible to wear stud clippings. They typically come with magnets that one places behind the earlobes in order to hold the stud earrings in place.

 

Hoops

The great thing about hoop earrings is that they go with almost every type of outfit and do not attract any unnecessary attention. Hoop earrings come in the form of clippings as well. Most women have hoop earrings, which makes these earrings to be associated with femininity and style. Therefore, as a crossdresser man, you can never go wrong with a pair of fancy hoop earrings.

 

Chandeliers

4. How to wear the right kind of earrings?

 

Selecting the right colored jewelry is important (rings and earrings). Color matching is a problem that some crossdresser beginners tend to face. The skill of matching the color of outfits and jewelry is the key to exuding feminine energy. And it is actually a simple trick. All you need to do is match similar colors together. Here are some color matches of clothes and jewelry that you can never go wrong with. They include:

In case you feel that you need more help with color matching or finding the right complimentary colors, a color wheel/scheme can really come in handy.

 

5. Knowing when to rock bold statement earrings

 

Introduction to Rings and Earrings

 

If most of your outfits are simple or single-shaded, then bold earrings can help to add color and vibrancy to your outfit. Statement jewelry is the kind of jewelry that instantly attracts the attention of others. Bold statement earrings are usually large, colorful, and shaped in a unique way to attract attention. If most of your clothes are dark, bold statement earrings can transform your look in the simplest way. However, statement pieces can be overdone and ruin the entire look. So whenever you are rocking bold statement earrings, remember that less is more. This means that one statement piece will do. Do not over wear statement earrings, necklaces, bracelets, and rings. One bold piece is enough to add some plush to your outfit.

 

6. Knowing when to pair earrings with the hair or outfit

 

When wearing a bold-colored outfit, you can pair it with hoops, studs, or Huggies to compliment your look. However, if you decide to wear a bold necklace with the outfit, wearing big earrings as well may overdo the look. In such a case, a small pair of rhinestone earrings will do.

 

The type of hair you wear will also determine the type of earrings you put on. If you are rocking big afro-style hair, then large earrings can act as the perfect bold accent piece for your outfit. If you like to keep your hair short, try tear drop, chandelier, clusters, or dangle earrings to compliment your style. Since hair tends to frame one’s face and give you a softer look, the dangling earrings will make you more attractive with the short hair.

 

Introduction to Rings and Earrings

 

If you are into curly long hair, then a pair of gorgeous hoops, studs, or clusters will bring out your beauty. Remember that long hair may cover your ears and hide your earrings. This is why big hoops or studs are best for long hair in order to keep you looking glamorous and stylish at all times.

 

7. Introduction to rings for crossdressers

 

Now that you have decided to wear rings as a fashion statement, how will you find the right kind of rings that will make your hands appear more feminine and delicate?

Here are a few tips to keep in mind when buying rings:

 

1. Understand the type of hands you have

 

As a male crossdresser, the chances are high that your hands are larger in size compared to the average female. The goal is to make your hands appear more feminine by finding the right-sized rings for your hands. If you have large hands, do not buy thin dainty rings because the size of your hand will overpower the ring and make it look out of place on your fingers. Instead, if you have a large palm, buy rings that are thicker and larger in size. This way, they will fit right in with the size of your hand.

Also, I recommend that you go for big rings with a wide band. This is because they look like statement pieces and make your hands more attractive.

 

2. Pick the right type of metal

 

There are so many metals to choose from when buying rings. Some of the best include:

 

Sterling Silver

This metal is whitish in color, and the rings are usually very affordable. The great thing about Sterling Silver is that it is easily bendable to conform to the shape of your finger. And, you can always polish it to keep it looking shiny at all times.

 

Gold

If you are buying a ring with a narrower band, gold is the perfect option for you. Gold rings are very durable and always hold their shape well. Although they are costlier, gold rings will always have an attractive luster.

 

Stainless steel

Rings made from stainless steel are excellent for crossdressers because they are affordable, look like silver, and very durable. If you prefer rings with wide bands, stainless steel rings are a great place to start.
