Hoop earrings have always been a jewelry staple but like any other trend, they’ve evolved over the decades. In the 70s, women wore them with disco print head scarves and in the 90s, with graphic tees and light wash jeans. Today, there really aren’t any rules. Whether you’re on the hunt for a fun and flashy pair to complete your spring outfit or an everyday hoop that exudes understated cool, we’ve got you covered. Check out our best (and most stylish) hoop earring picks for wearing day-to-night and making heads turn every hour.
