Some fashion trends fade, some become permanent fixtures of the modern wardrobe. In the case of hoop earrings, they’ve managed to survive for several millennia, with a rather fashionable hammered gold pair first appearing in Sumerian culture in 2500 B.C. To say that hoop earrings have stood the test of time is something of an understatement.
Anyone with a keen eye might have noticed a recent uptick in the number of “It” girls favoring hoops of late. Insta-famous models such as Hailey Baldwin and Bella Hadid regularly sport hoop earrings, and so do celebrities like Blake Lively and influencers like Karen Wazen. They really do go with anything, and look good on everybody.
Both classic and contemporary silhouettes have been explored by designers in recent years, resulting in hoop earrings that are eye-catching in more ways than one. From styles covered in gemstones and crystals to sculptural versions, the summer season’s crop of hoop earrings is as versatile as it is fetching. In the gallery below, we take a look at how “It” girls are wearing their hoop earrings circa now and offer a few shopping ideas for the fashionably minded.
