Fashionistas tell us that there are six classic pieces of jewelry that every woman should have in her wardrobe. These pieces add a bit of sparkle to an outfit, yet are classic and refined. In each of these blog articles, I will select one piece and explain how it fits into a wardrobe plan.
Hoop earrings are often part of the wardrobe from girlhood to adult life. Hoops vary in size from extremely tiny to quite large. The best size for most faces is around the size of a golf ball. Hoops that are larger tend to draw the eye easily into the "expressive zone" of the face. Larger hoops tend to add movement to your outfit.
I don't know about you, but I would rather have someone notice my eyes than my thighs!
While gold and silver hoops are mainstays, they work well in either a mirror or satin finish. I recommend having both a gold and a silver set. Round is the typical shape for hoops, but often a teardrop shape (like our Complements earrings) is more flattering to a round or full face. For a more modern look, an angular shape hoop is best (like our Orbit earrings).
Once your basic jewelry wardrobe is complete, you can consider adding hematite hoops, such as Trellis!
Hoop earrings in gold and silver tones will give your wardrobe loads of versatility for many years. Be sure to stop back by to learn about more basic jewelry wardrobe pieces!
