Hoop earrings are one of the most popular jewellery styles in the world and have quickly become an essential piece in many jewellery lovers’ collections. The hoop craze has been around since the 1960s and they’ve become the classic pair of earrings for casual wearing or on a big night out. Hoop earrings are a powerful accessory that can dress up or dress down any look. With so many sizes, shapes, and styles to choose from, you really can’t go wrong with a pair of hoops and here are 4 ways to style your hoop earrings.
Mix and match your sizes
The first way to start styling hoop earrings is by playing around with different sizes. This is a great way for you to step out of your comfort zone when it comes to styling and to differentiate your hoop collection. If you’re a fan of dainty jewellery, go for small or mini hoops or huggies. This size is easy to keep simple and are a great pair to pop in for work or chilling out around the house. If you prefer something a little bigger, choose medium to large sized hoops. Bigger hoops demand more attention and is a fun throwback to the 80s and 90s. Larger sizes are also a great way to experiment with different shapes. While circles are the most popular shapes and tend to suit most face types, square hoops add extra dimension and for something jazzier, choose heart or star shapes. If you have multiple pieces, mixing up your hoop stack with different sizes makes it more exciting to look at.
Wear with charms
An extremely popular style right now is hoop earrings with interchangeable charms. This is a great way to mix up your earrings and to take your hoops from a simple and subtle style to a more outgoing one. Our Hampton Collection is full of simple 18ct Yellow Gold Vermeil hoops which can be worn on their own or embellished with attachable gemstone drops in a dazzling array of colours. When you buy the set of hoops, you have them forever and can keep adding more charms to your collection for more colour, sparkle, and symbols, whatever the occasion.
Fun textures & materials
Playing with textures and materials is a fun way to add something more to your hoops. While gold and silver metals are typically the most popular materials for hoops, more and more brands are playing around with different styles, like acrylic, beads, enamel, and resin. Rather than the smooth style of hoops, go for something a bit different with brushed or hammered textures. By manipulating the metal, it gives the hoops an interesting look and adds more motion and fluidity to the earrings. The extra texture also adds more shape to your hoops and compliments the face.
Studded with gems
If you’re a fan of gemstones, a fun way to spice up your hoops is by picking a pair that has gemstones built in. Classic and glamorous, hoops with encrusted gemstones add a burst of sparkle in your outfit. Many brands have their own versions of this and the Auree Jewellery Londoner’s collection features white and blue cubic zirconia and rainbow stones. Cute gemstone hoops go really well alongside plain hoops in a similar size or colourful stud earrings.
