Though we love a good statement earring (especially thanks to their significance on the latest runways), most might be a little bit over the top for a work zoom. On-trend hoop earrings, on the other hand, are continuing to be a go-to among the fashion set, with a bounty of polished options perfect for upping your office (and after work) style. Everything from delicate coils to subtle chain links to artisanal loops are at once eye-catching and elegant.
The key to finding the style that's right for you: don't be afraid to scour Instagram for inspiration on what catches your eye. Since many life activities are currently digital only, turning online for style inspiration can only help you when it comes to feeling out different takes on the trend. Start off with one smaller pair for everyday, and a second more eye-catching style. From there, explore more geometric takes or an oversized style you can use to amp up your everyday staples. From quietly classic to cool and contemporary, find elegant hoops to try now for every budget.
