Beaded Hoop Earrings, Trend Still Going Strong!
In the world of style, trends with accessories come and go. They find their way back onto the runways and storefronts, but in different forms.
Over the years hoop earrings have come in many forms; different sizes and styles. One trend-setting look that has attracted many fashionistas are “Beaded Hoop Earrings” also known as the “Basketball Wives Hoop Earrings”. This look had the streets of New York City buzzing in the early and mid-1990’s and it’s found a way back onto the fashion accessory scene when the reality show Basketball Wives introduced them to the public in 2010.
The 90’s look consisted of miniature beads, while the millennium style is complimented by voluminous balls/beads. While to most people this look may seem gaudy, oversized jewels are the way to go, it delivers a present-day appeal to any outfit. Pair with a chunky ring, or layer multiple bangles; remember the earrings are the focal point.
Many celebrities love this style, and it shows all over the airwaves! Evelyn Lozada (known for the reality show Basketball Wives, and wife of Miami Dolphins player Chad Ochocinco), is known for sporting the beaded ornament trend on the show, as well as showcasing them in her Miami boutique “Dulce“.

The cast mates of “Love and Hip Hop Atlanta” also flaunt these flattering pieces, and who could blame them? There are many ways to purchase these hoops (local shops, online, etc.) as well as having a pair custom made to really express your individuality.
