You've seen them in movies from the 50s, and again in classic 1970s films. Then, they seemed to go out of style for a while. Yes, the trend being spoken of here is hoop earrings. If you look at style magazines and watch some fashion shows today, you'll notice that they're back—and better than ever. Here's a look at the hoop earrings that are popular today and how you can style them.
Popular Hoop Earring Styles Today
In the past, the hoop earrings that were popular were large and made from either silver or gold. It's not that these styles are not still popular today; they are. However, there are now some more unique options for those who want to branch out a bit.
Hoop earrings with dangling charms are a fun option. They may have little stars, hearts, or even colored jewels hanging from them. The presence of the hanging charm interrupts the circle, giving this type of hoop earring a softer look. For an example of this style, check out some Moonchild hoop earrings.
Colored hoop earrings made from metals like Damascus steel or titanium are also becoming popular. These hoop earrings often have an artistic look. They're the kind of thing you might wear to a rock concert or an art gallery.
Hoop earrings with a varying thickness are another fun choice. They could be thick at the bottom and thin at the top, for example. The hoops could also change in thickness several times over the circle, creating a sort of rippled effect.
How to Style Hoop Earrings
Hoop earrings have always been and will always be more on the casual side. They're not the kind of thing you'd wear to a black tie gala. However, you can style them suitably for the office or a work event if you choose simple gold or silver hoops that are an inch in diameter or less. This style looks nice with a fitted blazer.
For a fun concert look, go with hoops in a bright color, or maybe those with dangling charms. Pull your hair back so the hoops really stand out. You can echo them with a necklace in the same color or style.
You can even wear your hoops out to do chores and run errands. Since they call a lot of attention to themselves, you do not have to wear any other jewelry with them when the goal is to look fun, easy, and free.
