Hoops also continue to be a fixture in runway shows like Ulla Johnson and Bottega Veneta, and celebs like J. Lo are renowned for their love of the look in a wide range of silhouettes—from chunky to slender to gem-studded. Looking for a go-to style that’s versatile and won’t disappoint? Put on a pair of hoops and effortlessly tackle whatever scenario life throws your way.
