Wardrobe Essentials-Hoop Earrings

What are the classic items that you can add to your wardrobe that will never go out of style?  What are timeless pieces that add style and class after fashion fades?  Every Monday I’ll have a suggestion for pieces that you should add to your wardrobe that have staying power.  Today, I want you to take a fresh look at hoop earrings.  Hoop earrings are a timeless piece and are never out of style.  The fashion of the hoop earring may change but it always remains a staple piece you should have in your wardrobe.  These are great when you’re in a hurry and just need some earrings to throw on as you run out the door.  Now, some of you might be thinking that the hoop earring is boring.  It’s really not-you just haven’t found the right style.  Here is a guideline on what type of hoop earrings you should wear based on the shape of your face:

Oval face: You have what might be called a “universal” face-meaning everything looks good on you.  Experiment with different hoop styles to find one you like best.

Heart face: You want to find hoops that are more of a teardrop shape and not the traditional round shape.

Square face: You want to wear large hoop earrings.  Small hoops will be lost on you due to your face shape.  Experiment with different sizes until you find a larger size you’re comfortable with.

Round face: You want to wear oblong shaped hoops.  Round hoops will emphasize the roundness of your face too much.  Oblong hoops will create needed length for your face.

See my Top 5 Steals page for examples of all of these hoop earrings at budget friendly prices!
