Hoops: Hoop earrings are by far 2018’s biggest earring trend - and the bigger the better. After a long time, hoop earrings are back on trend, Evolved during the 60s, the hoops are quite popular since then as they add the retro effect to your overall look. The earrings were very popular between the 80s and the early 2000s, in various sizes, from tiny styles to super thin designs worn by pop stars. Now all sizes and styles are trendy, even worn all together. With their large and prominent profile, hoops draw attention up to your face. Being circular in shape, they perfectly compliment your jaw line and cheekbones to better define your facial features without much of makeup.
Statement earrings: Statement earrings are a major comeback which is now ruling the fashion industry. These are normally big and brightly coloured which are captivating and intimidating. This season, keep an eye out for shoulder-grazing statement earrings complete with tassels, beads, and beyond. And the bigger, the better is definitely true here. Our favourite versions of this trend are complete with unique textures - if you’re going to make a statement, say it loud and proud.

Studs: The most and all time favourite are stud earrings - usually preferred by women who like minimised jewellery. Some say they are too simple or understated, but the truth is that stud earrings give an air of elegance to anyone wearing them provided the wearer knows how to pull them off. They are available in all the precious stones- gold, silver, ruby, sapphire etc. The size and the stone quality determine the price of stud earrings but once worn will surely make you look classy and elegant. Stud earrings are easy to combine with necklaces and other accessories, and won’t stretch your ears like hanging earrings do. A trendy pair of oversized ear studs can turn your otherwise boring outfit into an ultra-chic look.
Ear Cuffs: Wearing three or even four earrings in one ear is a huge trend. Earcuffs are trendy, funky look which is a quite hit among females. It wraps around your ear like a bobby pin. It looks glamorous and cool at the same time. Available in different shapes, sizes and themes and embedded with precious or semi-precious stones, they look dazzling with any outfit you choose.
