how to pull off hoop earrings, this season's statement accessory
As far as jewelry trends go, hoop earrings have been going in and out of fashion since the Noughties when metallic textiles and shiny embellishments were accentuated by the metal hoops hanging from our ears. Since then, we dropped most of the shimmery outfits and kept only this piece of jewelry that can turn any outfit into a party-ready look. Though we’ve revived the gigantic hoops of the beginning of the century, this season's trend has now evolved into including different types of size, shape and material which will still be in for a very long time.
So if you’re feeling unsure about the idea of wearing heavy huge hoops, there are many ways to sport the trend and elevate a casual outfit into a contemporary look thanks to delicate earrings that don’t shout out Britney Spears circa 2006. Here we show how to pull off hoops for every occasion.
If you’re the type to keep the same earrings with every outfits, you will want to go for effortless mini hoops that are timeless classics. Choose a modern version with double hoops, pearls or in a squared shape to complement your classic white shirt or graphic tee. Encrusted diamonds on white or rose gold will help give a twist to your office dresses and bring some sparkle into a simple look. After all, it’s not the size that really matters.
FOR A DAY OUT
If you’re going to a brunch with friends or a work event, make a statement with fashionable earrings that people will notice. Play with materials and prints on small to medium hops to embolden your casual white tee and leather jacket. The more simple your outfit, the crazier you can get with your earrings by choosing them embellished with hearts, pearls or bangles. If you’d like to stay a bit more discreet, a classic hoop with the right level of detailing will still leave a striking impression without being too much.
FOR A DATE NIGHT
Whether it’s a first date or an evening spent with your loved one, the trick to freshen up your look is to play with your accessory, and the easiest way to do so is with your earrings. Consider a classic selection of refined and polished hoops in gold or silver that are simple yet sophisticated to bring brilliance to your special night. If you’re going for a large pair, make sure they are thin and delicate to complement a suit, while smaller, thicker ones will fit perfectly a maxi dress or a cocktail gown.
FOR A LATE PARTY
If you want to be adventurous and play the hula hoop, take some risks with new sizes and textures, and you’re guaranteed to be the star of the night. This is not the time to hold back as huge hoops will turn your little black dress into a dancefloor-ready look while impressing your friends. Choose a light pair that won’t disturb you when you’re dancing the night away wearing leather pants and a sheer top. These hoops really go with everything and are a great solution if you’re not that into mini dresses and high heels but still want to look like a diva.
