It's time to put a new spin on your gold hoop game
I have a jewellery box dedicated to just earrings. I have everything from seashells to turquoise tear drops and yet I rotate between two or three pairs that are essentially the exact same: thin, gold, hoop earrings.
Whether I’m heading to work, or getting ready for a night out, no matter how many pairs of earrings I fiddle with, I just grab my old reliables. I have multi-packs of hoop earrings from Penneys in varying sizes, and similar ones from Accessorize and Asos, and I always go for the basic mid-size option.
I’ve tried to add some more exciting, more creative earrings to my jewellery box, but there is something so flattering and easy about hoops.
I know I’m not alone in this, and many of you are also hoop-addicts. So instead of wasting money on interesting pairs we’ll never wear, I instead suggest a subtle update on the hoop.
Here are loads of updated versions of the hoop earring, to help you mix it up a little…
Stars are a perfect way to update your hoop earring game. It couldn’t be easier to pull off two trends at once.

If you’ve been rocking gold for as long as you remember but don’t want to stray from the classic circle shape, a pop of colour is so easy.
Accesorize, from €7
A simple way to glam up the classic look so that you can wear your fave earrings to a wedding or formal event is to opt for charms.
Never Fully Dressed, €19
Sometimes hoops you can fit your hand through can be harder to pull off with different hairstyles, such as a high pony. Not to mention they can be a little impractical. Little dainty versions of your fave hoops are a perfect way to make the trend more wearable no matter how active your day is.
New Look, €6.99
Despite the name, hoops don’t strictly have to be circles. And easy way to revamp the trend is to swap the shape and opt for some geometric alternative.
