Hoops are perhaps the most common type of earrings and come in a wide range of shapes, sizes, colors and patterns. They create an elegant look for the evening but can be adapted for a daytime look too – the ultimate accessory! If you’re looking for a relaxed daytime look, try going for a thin, silver hoop earring. You can decide on the size – it’s up to you and how bold you’re feeling! In the evening, you can pick out slightly fancier, diamante studded hoops for example for a more chic look. Golden, beaded hoops were simply made for daytime festival chic. There’s a hoop for every occasion and every outfit!
Gold hoops look great on blondes and brunettes in particular and come in a variety of styles. Try a plain, thin hoop for an understated look, or twisted gold metal for something a little more decorative. You can find gold hoops that have diamante embellishments set into wider bands too which look fantastic with matching accessories and a little black dress – tres chic! If you cannot decide between gold and silver hoops, why not go for a style that mingles both shades? This combination works very well and looks exceptionally stylish on blondes and raven haired beauties.
If you are wearing bedazzled hoop earrings that you want to be noticed by all, try twisting your hair up into a chic chignon to draw attention to the hoops.
Silver hoops are a good choice for redheads, as they can often feel that gold clashes with their skin tone. However there are plenty of lucky auburn haired beauties who can pull off silver and gold! Redheads suit dainty large hoops in particular and the combination of large, silver hoops and curly auburn hair is quite spectacular. Silver hoop earrings can be bought in an array of sizes and you can often buy sets of graduating size so that you can choose the size that best suits your mood!
Hoops within Hoops
Another popular design of hoop earrings is to suspend smaller hoops within bigger hoops, creating a stylish and fashionable effect. The hoops can be fixed into the shape, creating several lines within the earring, or suspended by thin metal so that they turn and glint in the light within the larger hoop.
Wide Band Hoops
Hoop earrings don’t have to be made out of thin metal. There are some extremely stylish designs of hoop earrings that incorporate a wider band of metal, within which can be diamante studs or patterns of colors. They can be decorated with images or studded with beads of varying colors to create a dazzling effect.
A popular selection of hoop earring is a thin band of metal decorated with colorful feathers, creating a delicate look to your earrings. These are great for daytime wear and can be twinned with a stylish maxi dress for the ultimate festival attire. Match them to the color of your dress for the perfect ensemble.
Beaded Hoop Earrings
If you don’t fancy metal hoop earrings, you can also choose from plastic or glass beaded hoop earrings. Thin wire is used to thread beads of varying color and these create a fantastic look. Perfect for daytime chic that isn’t too over the top.
Shapes within Hoops
The hoop itself can seem quite bare alone which is why plenty of designers choose to suspend shapes within the hoop earring designs. There are plenty of shapes to choose from but popular styles include hearts, stars and lightning bolts. These add a little drama and interest to the humble hoop. Larger hoops can be fitted with smaller hoops inside and the gap between the two filled with crocheted materials creates a fantastic gothic look in black, and a more subtle ethnic look in reds and browns.
Names within Hoops
If you’re feeling really bold, why not try to find hoops that display your name within them? This is a popular design and you’ll be surprised at the abundance of this style available on the market. You don’t have to use your own name, you could opt for the name of a loved one, or the name of your favorite pop act or band. Or if you don’t want to use a full name, why not use just an initial?
Hoop earrings are fantastically versatile and there’s something for everyone out there. So have fun exploring the web for your perfect pair of hoop earrings!
