Am I the only woman who feels like she can do anything when wearing a pair of hoop earrings? There is some superpower when you are rocking a pair. You walk taller, your head is held higher and life is good.
A pair of hoop earrings can dress up a t-shirt and distressed jeans or add extra glam to a formal dress. There are also different sizes and thickness to hoops, which can range from everyday hoops to more dramatic ones. Check out a few of my favorite hoop earrings designers.
If you follow me on Facebook or Instagram, Fearless Threads is a familiar name for all things accessories in my wardrobe. We have been friends for close to 8 years and I have everything from kimonos, skirts, fanny packs and my latest obsession, hoop earrings. I love Naima's earrings because she uses solid leather or vinyl in colors, such as rose gold and silver that can be worn everyday. She also uses thin hoops that are subtle to be worn at the workplace or to church. She also uses her signature Ankara fabric to create her designs. I find myself reaching for my rose gold hoops all the time without thought.
All Things B. Alexis
B. Alexis is a gem and has been my funky earring guru for years. I first met her years ago at a block party festival and was intrigued by designs and bubbly personality. Her jewelry like her personality is bright and inviting. She offers several sizes and shapes all wrapped in wax fabrics. She loves to wrap a pair of doorknockers in yellows, greens and blues. Her earrings are such a statement, that you don’t need any other jewelry. About a year ago, we even collaborated on a collection mixing coordinated colors and fabrics, but were different from each other. She is dope and her work stands out.
Again hoops are magical, especially when designed by dope black women. Check out my girls and tell them that I sent you their way. I promise you won’t be disappointed!
