Let’s agree: Hoop earrings have a magical ability to liven up le visage and make any outfit (no matter how simple) look explicitly more chic. And while hoops have never really gone out of style (women have been wearing them for centuries, dating all the way back to Ancient Egypt and Mesopotamia), hoops have had their heightened moments of popularity. Think the ’70s, ’90s, and… now. This season, hoop earrings have ascended to fashion stardom. But not just any hoops. The latest iterations come in cool textures, fabrics, and reinvented shapes and sizes.
I’m currently head-over-heels for the unique tortoiseshell and acrylic versions that are reigning supreme on the market right now. Cool-girl brand Cult Gaia has some stunning colorful iterations that will turn heads wherever you go. The lapis blue ones above are my current favorites. These also come in a plethora of cool colors and a mini version. Not only do they garner a slew of compliments whenever I wear them, but they positively brighten my look and mood. The added bonus is you don’t really have to dress up when you wear a pair of stunning hoops like these. A basic white tee and tracksuit bottoms suddenly acquire character when a unique pair of earrings is added to the mix.
