What is a huggie hoop?

The huggie hoop is an earring trend that’s here to stay. These subtle pieces of jewellery have become a staple in many collections, offering versatility, style, and a touch of elegance. But what exactly is a huggie hoop, and why has it become so popular, so quickly? Let’s get into it. 

What are huggie hoop earrings? 

Huggie hoop earrings are small, circular earrings that closely ‘hug’ the earlobe. Their design is such that they sit snugly around the lobe, providing a seamless look that combines the sophistication of traditional hoops with a more contemporary, understated elegance. Unlike their larger hoop counterparts, huggie hoops are known for their comfort and can be worn throughout the day without causing discomfort. They are the perfect compromise between a hoop and a stud. 

Why we love huggie hoop earrings 

The appeal of huggie hoops lies in their versatility and subtlety. These earrings can complement almost any outfit, from casual wear to formal attire, making them a must-have accessory for any occasion. They come in a variety of styles, from plain and minimalist to those embellished with diamonds and gemstones. When crafted in precious metals, these earrings can be left in at all times, accessorising anything you wear. 

  • Versatility: Huggie hoops can be styled in numerous ways. They are perfect for those who have multiple ear piercings, as they can be mixed and matched with other earrings for a layered look. 
  • Comfort: Designed to be lightweight and secure, they are ideal for long wear, even while sleeping or exercising. 
  • Elegance: They add a touch of sophistication to any look without overpowering it. Their simplicity is key to their elegance. 

Choosing the right huggie hoop earrings 

When selecting huggie hoop earrings, consider the following: 

  • Material: They are available in a variety of materials including gold, silver, and platinum. Choose a material that suits your skin type and personal style, as you’ll probably wear them daily. Opt for a precious metal, so that they can become a staple of your daily wardrobe. 
  • Design: If you’re looking for an everyday pair of earrings – or a pair to complement other piercings – opt for something classic and on the plainer side. But if you want a pair of huggies for a statement, evening look, choose something adorned with gemstones. 
  • Closure type: Ensure the closure is secure and comfortable. Common types include snap closures, lever backs, and hinge closures.
