WHY HOOP EARRINGS ARE THE BEST RECURRING TREND
Johnny Depp, Boyzone, Eminem and Brian Austin Green pre Megan Fox all contributed to making hoop earrings a 'thing' in the 90's. Then we saw much larger hoops on Jennifer Lopez, Angelina Jolie and Rihanna and the trend was confirmed. We all owned them, and we rocked them - whether it was with our timberland boots, our cargo pants or our Adidas poppers.
Since then, we have only really seen them on Khloe Kardashian, Rihanna and Nelly Furtado - not giving a damn about the fact 'hoe hoops' were seen as a fashion trend long gone, how they must be laughing now.
One of my all time fashion muses once said - 'everything comes back in, if you wait long enough' and I genuinely think this is true. I have been wearing small hoops for around 6 months now and only last week I was shopping on Oxford Street and picked up a thin sterling silver pair I could fit my wrist through, I loved them! They went perfectly with the summery pink slip dress and blush new balances I was wearing and I put them on straight away. Subtly peeking out underneath my brunette hair I was wearing down, they just completed the outfit.
Since then I have worn them in Spain, with a middle parting/low bun and a tie up top and skirt - I had the flamenco look down to a T. And I wore them with a bikini if I wanted to look more 'fun' by the pool. I'm pretty sure I could even wear them with my gym attire - the small hoops looked great but I'm not sure how practical the larger size would be for working out!
My overall verdict of the hoop - if it's cool enough for Angelina!
