Hoops: The Universal Earring.

I once heard someone say that hoop earrings are the answer to everything. Having a bad hair day? Throw on some hoops. Feeling under the weather? Hoops will make you feel better. Just broke up with someone? Hoops! There’s no denying that hoops automatically pull a look together. They’re simple and timeless. And a good pair of hoop earrings are certainly worth the investment.
