Ok, so here’s the skinny on hoop earrings. Go thick! Thanks to designer Laura Lombardi, I’m ready to trade in my dainty earrings (only temporarily, of course) for a pair of her thick, medium sized gold hoop earrings. They’re made from hallow brass and only a little over 2 inches in diameter, which makes them lightweight and easy to wear with just about any outfit – summer, fall or winter. If you can’t track down a pair of Laura’s Curve Earrings, which retail for just under $100, I’ve rounded up some other hoop options after the jump!
