Inside: The best hoop earrings to make any outfit better.
In the recent Y2K resurgence in fashion and style, hoop earrings have made an iconic comeback. And as they should, they make every fit better! I’ve collected the best hoop earrings on the market because let’s be real… they’re everywhere!
And it can be overwhelming to shop for a product as saturated as hoop earrings are.
I personally love a staple chunky gold hoop because it adds so much to even the most “blah” outfit.
White tee and jeans? Simple. With gold hoops? Cool.
Even using them to style a cute sweats set makes the outfit go from lounge to street. There’s no other accessory that can do that! Except maybe the right pair of shoes…
Let’s deep dive into the best size of hoop for you and the right color, style, and then finally, let’s actually find the right pair.
In this post I’ll break down how to find the right pair of even the best hoop earrings, because it can be a little different for everyone!
Different Styles Of Hoops
There are so many different styles of hoops it’s hard to know where to start on the best option for you! It’s essential to have the perfect staple hoop that you can wear for any occasion at all times.
Here’s a breakdown of the typical hoops you’re going to find on the market so you know what you’re looking at when you’re shopping.
Huggie – Probably the littlest hoop you can get! Super trendy right now, especially if you have multiple piercings. It’s called the huggie because it hugs the lobe pretty close and is a cute little addition.
Infinity – The infinity hoop is the type where you can’t tell where it opens to put it through the piercing. These are cute because they’re so minimalist and clean.
C Hoop – C Hoops are where you see the break in the hoop for the clasp. It can sometimes be a little larger than necessary making it a part of the design that it is an open hoop.
Clasp – This might be the hoop style that you find most common. The post that goes through the piercing closes with a typical earring clasp that close the circle, unlike the C Hoop.
Straight Post – Whether it’s attached to a C Hoop or clasp, there are several hoop styles that use a straight post. Some are curved, some continue with the shape of the hoop, some have a straight post.
What Size Hoop Earrings Should I Get?
Choosing a hoop size is totally up to your preference and your style.
The hype beasts and the baddies totally rock the large and thin hoop with anything: hoodies, tees, dresses, anything.
Others find more comfort in a standard small hoop to go with everything– something more subtle.
Either is a great option and everything in between! I like to wear medium sized hoops for daily wear, usually some that are textured or shaped like something fun, and bigger hoops for nice events.
It is possible to wear hoops that are too large for your features. Ask yourself honestly if the hoop size is overpowering on you, and if you can’t tell, ask a friend!
Best Hairstyles For Hoop Earrings
I love to plan my hairstyles and earrings together! They totally go hand in hand and we don’t let them play together enough.
For hoop earrings, a cute and trendy high pony is never a bad idea! A slicked back model bun is always hot.
With your hair all the way down it lets your hoops play peek-a-boo, but show them off! They’re adorable. My rule of thumb is if the earrings are part of the outfit, the hair goes up. If they’re just to add a little something, the hair can stay down. Depends on the outfit!

But what I love even more is a funky hoop. Something eye-catching and that sets the tone for the rest of the outfit without having to do too much.
Shapes, textures, and colors all can change the vibe of the hoop. Mix and match them with other hoops, dangle earrings, everything. Funky hoops can be so cool and give you credit for having the coolest accessories. Which is almost cooler than having the coolest clothes.
