Classics for Your Jewelry Wardrobe
From classic to cutting edge, hoop earrings are essential to every woman’s jewelry wardrobe. Hoops flatter all faces, and they never go out of style. This is the jewelry piece that allows you to go bolder and make a statement. Remember, you can’t have too many hoops, so have fun and don’t be afraid to try something more substantial.
Wondering what size is best for your face? Wider faces benefit from larger or thicker hoops, while those with narrower faces will look great in slimmer or more delicate styles. Many opt for the classic medium size, which is anywhere from 1-2 inches, but some prefer a smaller hoop or huggie when diamonds are featured. To get an idea of hoop sizes and different face shapes, visit stylebistro’s hoop earring lookbook – a fabulous collection of celebrity images featuring a diverse range of hoop styles.
