Hoop Earrings Over the Years & the Artists Who Love to Rock Them
As the adage goes: “The more things change, the more they stay the same.” This is certainly true when it comes to trends in fashion, but as a long-standing accessory, hoop earrings have always managed to hang around. Below, we’ve rounded up 9 stylish ladies known for sporting a pair, regardless of shape, size or diameter.
A veteran who has created hit after hit, penned endless songs for your fave (no matter who that may be), and is renowned for her forward-thinking visuals, Misdemeanor stays in the loop.
This list would be irrelevant if it not for this songstress, who makes music for the soul and is a Smooth Operator when it comes to her signature style. “I think hoops are such a classic, but at the same time very edgy,” notes New York jewelry designer Pamela Love, adding, “It makes a lot of sense to me that pop stars are embracing them. Those images of Sade in her giant hoops are some of the most iconic and memorable jewelry looks of all time.” We’re inclined to agree.
Ms. Fenty’s hoop collection is strong, a fact her friend and fine jewelry designer, Jennifer Fisher can attest to. “It’s funny, hoops are sort of like jeans. Everyone picks a different style, as they all fit everyone differently. I mean, Rihanna always goes for the largest ones,” says Fisher. Riri, a fan of Fisher’s, has paired them with haute couture and chic street style looks alike. Fisher loves them because quite simply, “You can wear them with anything!"
Definitely an around-the-way girl staple that J.Lo hasn’t lost her affinity for. Whether delicate and demure or doorknocker, you’d be hard pressed not to catch Jenny From the Block in a pair.
The 2017 Woman of the Year has topped the charts and everyone’s “Best Dressed” list. A risk taker in music and in fashion -- especially in 2017 -- it’s safe to say things have come full circle for Selena.

Through the winter, spring and fall you can count on the Queen of Hip-Hop Soul to deliver a real look that’s all her own. MJB, thigh high boots, and some hoops… name a more legendary trio.
Blame it on the cool-girl swag, but we think: the bigger the hoop, the bigger the statement.
The late great Salsa songstress electrified audiences with her extravagant costumes and extraordinary vocals. Cruz was a pioneer, achieving commercial success in the music industry and bringing a unique flair and flavor to everything she wore.
Not only is she one of the queens of country music; her reign is stacked with bling-y, bold jewelry. With a career spanning over five decades, this Southern girl’s calling card is her booming blonde hair, bright smile and signature hoop earrings.
