After making, selling, and wearing clip earrings fro more years than I care to mention, I've come to a conclusion about how to wear them. I'm talking about placement. If your earrings follow the curve of your face, that's going to be the best look. Some pairs of earrings have a definite right and left. So try them on alternate ear lobes and see which avoids the fly away look. If the top of the earring is rectangular or square think diagonal placement. Tilt the top do its flush with your cheek. If its too hard to get a diagonal, vertical is a good second choice.
