Pick a hoop size depending on your face shape.
For this guide to hoop earrings, the first factor to consider is size. If you’re trying to decide between a big hoop or a medium hoop, you might want to consider your face shape first. For example, if you have a round face shape, then you might want to opt for tiny hoops. Because a smaller hoop is dainty and typically hugs your earlobes, the roundness of the hoop earring is less likely to emphasize the roundness of your face shape. If you have a square or diamond face shape, then you might want to consider larger hoops. The roundness of a large hoop can soften the angles of your facial features.
Choose huggie earrings for everyday wear.
Larger hoops tend to make a big statement when they’re worn. So, if you’re looking for a hoop that will go with any casual outfit, you might want to choose huggies like Kendra Scott’s Keeley Huggie Earrings in Sterling Silver. These are small hoop earrings that wrap around your ear lobes and are a bit more simple and understated. You can also think of huggies as the foundation of your earring style. When you have multiple piercings, this is a great way to start. Then, you can incorporate other intricate details with huggies. You might choose a simple gold hoop, then elevate it with huggies that have crystals or gemstones.
