Hunter observes popular culture and celebrity women that inhabit it who wear fashionable, stylish and sexy attire for public appearances.
Hoop earrings are some of the most popular jewelry accessories with celebrities these days. Some women enjoy wearing the large oval shaped hoop earrings and others prefer the smaller ones. If you want to copy the celebrities look and wear hoop earrings, then there are a few things you should be aware of.
Deciding on the size of hoop earrings really depends on your age and shape of face. Typically the larger the hoop, the younger the wearer should be. Smaller hoops tend to lend a more sophisticated look to the wearer and is a favorite of older women. The shape of your face is also something that stylists say you should consider when choosing to wear hoop earrings. Those women with long and slender faces will find the hoop earrings more fashionable than women who have a larger face.
Hoop earrings go well with virtually any kind of hairstyle. Women with long hair generally wear hoop or drop earrings so the jewelry can be noticed more easily. Women with short hair can generally wear any kind of earring and certainly any variety of hoop earring will do just fine.
Hoop earrings can go well with virtually any outfit from the most glamorous evening dress to the most casual of jeans and t-shirt. Hoops for eventing wear can be decorated with diamonds or gemstones. A simple gold hoop earring works well for everyday wear. I think they are fabulous just for casual everyday wear. I like them for daily wear as they give a sex appeal in a simple piece that you may not get with any other earring.
You should also consider other jewelry that you may be wearing before snapping on hoop earrings. If you are wearing a large necklace it may not be a good idea to wear noticeable earrings as well. There is something to be said for subtlety. Hoops would be best with a less showy necklace.
I prefer a gold earring but silver can look just as nice. It seems though that the gold color tends to go with everything while with silver you may have to be a little more selective with what you wear them with. I like to see silver worn at night if it is chosen over gold. Silver hoops with a nice matching bracelet or necklace would look classy with a mini dress.
I joke with my significant other that if I see a personality on the TV wearing hoops that I believe her to be having a "good day". I do not know why but I believe that hoop earnings gives women a confidence that they might not otherwise have. Hoops have a sex appeal, in my opinion, that most other earrings just cannot provide. Sure a nugget of diamonds clamped on the ear is fine but they aren't a sexy as hoops.
Photos of Celebrities Wearing Hoop Earrings
Some of our favorite celebrities wear hoop earrings both casually and at various events. Megan Fox, Jennifer Lopez, Jessica Simpson, Kim Kardashian and Eva Longoria. They are known to wear super large to modest hoop earrings with dresses or jeans. Whether costume or expensive they are a favorite of most women, celebrities included.
You will notice in the photos below of celebrities wearing hoop earrings that they are worn to either draw attention to the face or not to distract, but enhance, other features on the women. Beyonce is having fun with her huge earrings. Minka Kelly is wearing a dress that is low in the front where she wants the attention drawn so her earrings are subtle yet perfect for her pretty face. Hilary Duff is young and enjoys large chunky hoop earrings. Where Demi Moore is older and wears age appropriate earrings that accentuate her beautiful face and lovely hair.
I personally like hoop earrings for women that have long hair. I also prefer thin and medium sized as well. The larger and chunky earrings are too gaudy for my taste. I do not care for the large earrings that Hilary Duff, Beyonce and one of Eva Longoria are wearing in the above photos. I prefer the smaller and/or thin varieties seen on Demi Moore, Jordanna Brewster or Megan Fox.

I think that comment is nearly as bad as saying "She asked for it"
Most women buy earrings because they like them not to make a statement about their sex lives!

Hi Hunter, I have also heard that women who wear bigger earring hoops are more into sex and/or sexually aggressive. Is there any truth to this? This could go along with the confidence suggested my michelle.dragon99 above.
