12 hoop earrings you need for summer

The wear-with-everything accessory, the hoop earring, is back this summer to add an element of fun to your wardrobe.

Whether your wardrobe’s a neat capsule of rotating basics or filled to the brim with pretty printed dresses, shirts and skirts, the right jewellery has the power to add a finishing touch to any outfit. 

And no accessory works harder than the humble hoop earring, in all it’s variations. It can add edge, polish or just an element of fun, making it perfect for levelling up your summer wardrobe.

From sculptural, statement-making resin styles from independent labels, to mini huggies pioneered by those New York cool-girl labels, there really is a hoop for every occasion. 

Everything from skinny to chunky, gold to silver and embellished to sculptural all work. Buy one new pair, in your metal of choice, and wear them with other tones – either with other earrings or with necklaces and bracelets too. Mixing and matching means you can incorporate current jewellery and really make your look your own.

Here’s our edit of the best styles available to buy right now.
