You don’t need me to tell you that hoop earrings are a total classic – it’s pretty much a no-brainer. When it comes to jewelry, some believe that less is more. “Before you leave the house, look in the mirror and take one thing off,” is a most famous quote attributed to legendary designer Coco Chanel. However, if you feel like something is missing from your outfit, sometimes the only solution is to to add something timeless.

Just about every celebrity – Rihanna, Kendall Jenner and Hailey Bieber to name a few – was photographed wearing the jewelry classic. The beauty of a pair of hoops is in their versatility – they can be part of your everyday office uniform, or perhaps the finishing touch to an elaborate outfit reserved for a glamorous event.

Plus, with so many different styles, finding a design that suits your skin tone doesn’t have to be a challenge. Gold is perhaps the obvious choice – as a rule, pieces with yellow undertones tend to suit those with warmer skin tones, while white gold and silver are exquisite on those which are at the cooler end of the spectrum.

Whether you prefer mini huggies, classic hoops or hoops wide enough to brush your shoulders, there’s something for everyone.
