Match Metals

This is one of the easiest tricks in the book. Check your belt hardware, your watch, whatever you wear that includes metal. What color are those? Outfits look cohesive when all your metals match. Of course, the rules of fashion are meant to be turned on their head, but if you're going to be wearing multiple colors of metal you better be going all out. Having just one accessory out of place will look like an oversight.

Consider Piercing Location

The right hoop for lobe piercings is usually quite different from the right hoop for cartilage piercings. If you're looking to style a cartilage piercing, you will want to find huggie hoop earrings (aka ear hugging earrings) that are small enough to wear comfortably in your specific piercing. Thick hoop earrings are probably not going to work in cartilage piercings, but don't worry, there are plenty of stylish hoop earrings that can be worked into more intricate piercings.

Consider Comfort

Some larger hoops may prove to be too heavy for your ears after a few hours. Lightweight hoop earrings do exist, and they are extremely popular hoop earrings for a reason! No one wants to feel like their ears are bothering them just because of the jewelry they want to wear. Speaking of comfort, hypoallergenic hoop earrings and medical grade hoop earrings will be your best bet for avoiding irritation of your earlobes in general. Titanium huggie earrings are hypoallergenic and lightweight and are great option for both women's and men's thick hoop earrings (while still being lightweight).
