You don't need us to tell you that hoop earrings are a total wardrobe classic – that's pretty much a given. 

When it comes to jewellery, some are of the opinion that less is more. "Before you leave the house, look in the mirror and take one thing off," is a quote most famously attributed to legendary designer Coco Chanel

However, in the event of feeling that something is missing from your outfit, sometimes the only solution is to add something timeless.

Hoops are a bona fide jewellery classic

Hoop earrings are unrivalled in their ability to elevate and make an outfit feel more 'done'. Irrespective of size, colour, finish or price tag, the jewellery box stalwart can be relied upon to deliver instant polish.

 Different occasions call for different designs: huggies for the office, classic creole hoops for the sun-soaked getaway and a pair with more pizzazz for the dance floor. There is no one-style-fits-all rule, and so you may well need some variety in your jewellery arsenal.

How we chose the pieces:

  • Style: Hoops have a certain classic appeal, they're less trend-focused than other jewellery styles and can help elevate an outfit in an instant. We scoured the internet's top fashion sites to pick out the pairs that are chic, ultra-wearable and flatter the face.
  • Price: Exceptional jewellery design needn't cost you a fortune. We've included the styles we're currently lusting after by some of our favourite designer jewellery labels, but we've also combed through the best of the high street to make sure there are some more affordable options too.
  • Colour Variety: Gold is perhaps the obvious choice – as a general rule, pieces with yellow undertones tend to suit those with warmer skin tones, whereas white gold and silver looks exquisite on those on the cooler end of the spectrum. But we've also included some more vibrant pairs for dopamine dressing devotees.

Hello! Fashion shares the best pairs of hoop earrings to shop now:

  • Silver Hoops

    Silver square earrings

    Block Small Hoops

    Crafted from...

    925 Sterling Silver.

    Inspired by "angular, modernist architecture", these silver square hoops by Mejuri are cool and compact. Add a bit of edge into your outfit - we recommend styling them with cool-girl combats, a white racer back and dark rectangular shades.

  • Bottega Veneta Triangle Earrings

    Essentials Hoop Earrings

    Crafted from...

    Sterling Silver.

    These triangular twist hoops by Bottega Veneta would make for the perfect collection addition if you're looking to invest. The shape sets them apart from their more conventional circular counterparts and they feel suitably understated for everyday wear.

    Isabel Marant

    Crafted from...

    Silver-tone metal and crystals.

    These gently twisted sparkly hoops by Isabel Marant feel high octane and fun. The light-reflecting crystals add a certain dazzle, and would no doubt look killer on the dance floor. Style yours with a metallic jumpsuit and a wash of cream highlighter for maximum impact.

  • Pandora pearl silver hoop earrings

    Treated Freshwater Cultured Baroque Pearl Hoop Earrings

    Crafted from...

    Sterling silver and treated freshwater cultured pearls.

    The pearl feels synonymous with elegance, and these hoops by Pandora fit the mould perfectly. The style feels minimalist and unfussy, and I love how the iridescence of the gemstone adds interest to an otherwise simple silver hoop.

  • Gold Hoops

    Whistles Gold Hoops

    Large Classic Hoop

    Crafted from...

    100% brass.

    If you're after gold hoops for everyday that won't break the bank, this pair by Whistles is a great shout. Clean and minimalist, they look more expensive than they actually are and, crucially, they will go with anything.

  • Gold curly hoop earrings

    This Is What Happens When The Paper Shredder Malfunctions Gold-Plated Hoop Earrings


    Crafted from...

    Gold-plated recycled silver.

    Completedworks has come through with a handmade pair steeped in drama, and yet, they could easily be played down if styled with beachy curls. With a playful, ribbon-like effect, these will inject an element of fun into any outfit.

  • Hammered Hoop Earrings

    Hammered Hoop Earrings

    Crafted from...

    Recycled brass.

    Created from recycled brass, these gold hoops by & Other Stories add a hint of texture to an otherwise quite traditional jewellery hero. Pair yours with a messy plait and smudgy brown pencil liner.

  • Cameron mini gold-tone crystal hoop earrings

    Cameron Mini Gold-Tone Crystal Hoop Earrings

    Amina Muaddi

    Crafted from...

    Gold-tone metal and crystals.

    Amina Muaddi is no one-trick pony. The label may have captured our hearts with its high glam sheer shoes, but there's more where that came from. These thick hoops are pizzazz personified - style them alongside a lustrous slip and minimalist heels to allow them to take centre stage.

  • Coloured Hoops

    Coloured hoop earrings

    Earrings Ivrea Creolo Medio

    Crafted from...

    18 karat gold plated 925 Sterling silver and multi-coloured zirconia.

    Unapologetically playful, these colourful zironica hoops by Sif Jakobs are full of fun. They're still minute enough in size that they don't overpower, but would look amazing with a metallic jacquard blouse.

  • Anni Lu coloured hoops

    Fantasy Beaded 18kt Gold-Plated Hoop Earrings

    Anni Lu

    Crafted from...

    18k gold-plated brass, multi-coloured glass beads and shells.
