Recently, hoop earrings have made a rather large comeback. Okay, I say they've made a comeback when they haven't really ever left. Hoops are pretty much a constant in terms of ear wear. But recently, I've seen them just about everywhere. From large multi-packs of multiple sizes in Primark for a pound all the way to the 9 or 18 carat gold ones.
Personally, I opted for a rather middle of the road pair from Zara. They set me back 9.99 which isn't ridiculously expensive. The thing I really liked is how they look quite expensive and haven't tarnished at all thus far. The only downside that I have experienced with Zara’s earrings (referencing these in particular but true of all the earrings I have from them) is that they have a tendency to be rather on the heavy side. Now perhaps it’s me, perhaps I have overly weak ear lobes? Maybe my ears just aren't cut out for the larger, heavier hoop. The real trouble is that I absolutely love wearing them and so I wear them often even if perhaps, in order to #savemyears I shouldn't. They look so darn good though.
I've always liked hoops. When I was younger it was generally the really simple, thin ones that I liked. The ones like Primark make in large packs that are very thin and easy to wear. I still wear those types of hoops but my preference nowadays is generally an earring with a bit more oomph. I’m very much partial to a Zara statement earring at all times of the year and these are by far my favourite earrings of the moment. The perfect elegant addition to any Christmas outfit.

Please note that Zara is now out of stock of these earrings
