Hoop earrings are a no-fail addition to any jewelry rotation. They’re sleek, timeless and add a dose of understated detail to any ensemble that needs a little elevating. But this summer, untraditional options abound—anything-but-average hoop earrings are as abundant as standard ones, which is both an excellent solution to classic hoop fatigue and an even more excellent excuse to do some serious shopping.

Whereas traditional hoops are crafted from some kind of metal and rendered in semi-thin, semi-tight hoops, some of summer’s not-so-average hoops are calling into question what, exactly, a hoop really is. Crafted from thick resins, sprinkled with sparkles, adorned with beads and splashed with fun colors, summer’s most out-of-the-ordinary hoop earrings drip with maximalism. Others aren’t even circular. That’s right—some of the hoop earrings on offer this summer are so distinctly not-basic that they’re rendered in the shape of lightning bolts, hearts, squares and other similarly loopy, but definitely not-circular forms.

Whether you’re a hoop earring die-hard who’s looking to switch up your daily rotation, or a hoop skeptic who’s intrigued by a less classic rendition of a timeless favorite, you’re in luck. Your favorite retailers have all kinds of anything-but-average hoop earrings on offer this summer—and they’re just waiting to elevate the next ensemble you assemble. How could one do anything but shop when so many fun baubles await?
