The spotlight on the hoop earring has been shining brighter than ever these last couple of seasons, and it refuses to be dimmed. This is all fine by me—there’s no easier pop of chic, in my opinion, than the humble hoop.
Though that isn’t to say that all hoop earrings are exactly humble. More complex versions are hitting the market seemingly by the day, laden in gemstones and dangling charms, geometric detail and mixed metals. Each and every variation is, in its own way, perfect—the ideal accompaniment to a summer’s-day uniform of simple dress and ponytail, the bare minimum to keep cool when the mercury hits 100.

For an excellent assortment of hoops, there is Ania Haie, a London-based jewelry (or jewellery, if you’re from across the pond) brand that will be showing for the first time at JCK Las Vegas this year. Offering an array of sterling silver jewelry at attainable price points, its styles are easily crowd favorites: Just trendy enough without being a passing phase; sleek and classic for every day and every individual’s taste.

Ania Haie offers styles I tend to like best: They look effortless, yet instantly pulled together. A simple pendant necklace is polished on its own, but it ups the fashion playing field when expertly layered with complementary styles.

The same can be said for the hoop earrings: The smaller huggie styles (like those above) are impactful when worn solo (I described the allure of that in this post), yet imagine the cool factor of, say, a trio of huggies on the ear. Mix and match, or don’t: These earrings are foolproof fashion.
