WHY HOOP EARRINGS ARE THE BEST RECURRING TREND

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!
