Big hoops are making a comeback and we are here for it! But if you’re new to the trend or are just looking for some tips on how to rock it without stretching your ears, keep reading. We’ve got some great advice on how to wear big hoops without sacrificing your earlobes.
1. Start Small
When it comes to big hoops, it’s all about ease. If you’re not used to wearing larger earrings, start with a small pair and work your way up. Our Finli Hoops, All Tied Up Hoops, and Tangie Hoops are all great starter options. They’re still large enough to make a statement but won’t pull on your lobe like some of the bigger styles out there.
2. Pick Lightweight/Hollow Designs
When it comes to big hoops, weight is everything—the lighter the better. A good rule of thumb is to look for hoops that are hollow or have a thinner wire gauge. That way they won’t pull on your ears as much as a solid pair would. All of Crown and Clover’s hoop earrings are hollow which makes them super lightweight.
And our largest hoops, like the Khloe Hoops, are designed with a thinner width so they won’t stretch out your lobes.
3. Switch Between Dangly and Stud Earrings
If you love the look of big hoops but don’t want to wear them all day every day, mix things up by switching between dangly earrings and studs.
We have a great selection of both including some super fun and trendy studs like our Crescent Studs, Cross Studs, and Heart Studs. So go ahead and switch things up—your ears will thank you!
4. Don’t Sleep in Them
This one might seem obvious but it’s important nonetheless! Sleeping in any type of earring can cause damage to your lobes but it’s especially important to avoid when wearing big hoops. The last thing you want is for your favorite pair of earrings to cause irreparable damage to your lobes! So take them off before you hit the pillow and enjoy worry-free sleep (and gorgeous earlobes in the morning).
So there you have it—our best tips on how to wear big hoops without stretching your ears! By following these four simple tips, you can rock the look all day long without sacrificing your beautiful lobes.
