How To Wear Hoop Earrings Casually And Formally

Out of all the jewellery trends that have come our way, none is as versatile, fun and easy to wear as hoop earrings. No wonder they’re so popular right now!

Thanks to their simple, unpretentious shape, they can be rendered in a variety of colours and finishes or even accessorised with extra details - the sky is the limit when it comes to hoop earrings. And, naturally, this makes them even more wearable: who doesn't want to throw on a pair and go about their day looking fabulous?

Below you’ll find two foolproof ways to style your hoops for brunch, work or events. Enjoy:

How To Wear Hoop Earrings Casually

Showing up at 8 am with a large pair of earrings might sound intimidating, but no fear: minimal hoops have the power to mitigate all styling risks.

In order to successfully pull this off, make sure that the rest of your look is effortless. Think: a white shirt left unbuttoned at the top and a fitted skirt or jeans. For extra flair, put on a pair of black sunglasses.

And, if you’re headed to the office, get some extra style points (and pull everything together) with a well fitted blazer.

In the middle of all this, your hoops will provide a much-needed dose of shine - fun!

How To Wear Hoop Earrings Formally

Hear us out: hoop earrings are not the very first thing that comes to mind when considering what to put on for a special occasion. Usually, that is the territory of statement or chandelier earrings, which scream for attention.

And, while hoop earrings do none of that loud talking, they can up the drama factor in their own way.

For maximum effect, reach for a pair that are a bit eccentric. Now, whether that means an unusual shape, a thicker width or a special texture it is entirely up to you. Fact is, they have to be a touch different from their day-to-day counterparts.

Once you’ve found your favourites, all you have to do is pair them with a long dress. Going for a simple design will work best, as all the elements of your look will work together instead of against each other. For maximum impact, opt for neutral accessories and barely-there makeup and hairstyling.
