Bang, like a firework, suddenly the Fourth of July is just about here. On the jewelry calendar that means, hoops.
If you don’t take my word for it, listen to designer Jennifer Fisher, “Hoop earrings are the perfect summer accessory. Rings are impossible on the beach, because of sunscreen. Necklaces are hard, because of tan lines. During the summer no one ever wants to blow out their hair so a statement earring is great day or night and what could be more timeless than a good pair of hoops.”
Jennifer practices what she preaches and makes hoops up and down the price scale in different sizes and widths. Emily Ratajkowski (in the photo above) has been wearing Jennifer’s Samira Hoops steadily for weeks.
Other designers also work the form in all kinds of variations reflecting the spirit of their collections. Here are some of the best hoops that will keep you looking good as the mercury rises.
