So What Exactly Are Huggie Earrings?
Huggie earrings, often known as huggers, are earrings that don't use a back. Instead, a hinge at the top of the earring allows the post to open and shut.
The word "huggie" comes from the fact that the earring is designed to sit snuggly against your earlobe.
Huggie earrings were originally relatively tiny and practically enclosed the earlobe. However, because these earrings were so well received, jewelers took the next step and created increasingly bigger versions.
Most hoops have a visible hinge in front—on top where your ear hole is. This can detract from a hoop's elegant and clean appearance. The way the earring links with your earlobe, especially with smaller hoop earrings, influences the overall elegance of the design.
Because the hinge is located in the lower portion of the earring, a huggie provides a clean line from earring to lobe.
Huggie earrings are generally shaped like a heart or a rectangle. Huggies are available in a variety of sizes.
Benefits of Wearing Huggie Earrings
One of the most appealing aspects of huggie earrings is their versatility. Because these earrings exist in many forms, sizes, and materials, you can easily match them to your clothing.
Knowing how much ladies adore hoop earrings, some bright jewelry designer devised a brilliant concept. They created a hoop earring with a bottom hinge. When the earring is clicked shut, the hoop post is fastened to the rear of the ring, sealing the circle.
Because no backing is required and the earring hangs onto the post, a one-of-a-kind earring was created.
You'll wear your post earrings less after discovering how comfy huggies are!
Huggie jewelers caught the word and began to get imaginative. They knew we needed the hinge and didn't want to bother with the backings. But we still wanted options, and we got them.
Do you wear post-style earrings? Have you ever been pricked in the neck by your post?
If you wear your huggies and grab your phone and lean it against your shoulder while multitasking, it won't hurt. Since there is no backing, you won't have a needle jabbing into the side of your head if there's any pressure on your ear.
Because they are so close to your skin, it is nearly hard to snag them on your clothes when you remove them.
Huggie earrings are also versatile. They may be worn as a single pair or numerous stacked pairs to create as big or tiny a statement as you wish.
Hoop earrings may be worn not just casually but also to more formal parties and dressier situations.
Huggies are light so they won't dangle from your top ear or earlobe. They can also be worn for more extended periods than studs or hoops. And when the time comes, cleaning is simple.
How to Wear Huggie Earrings
Now that you get the gist of huggie earrings and why they are great, it's time to start styling them!
Wearers often place one pair in their lobes for a simple, simplistic style or stack them in other ear piercings up the ear for a more layered bohemian aesthetic.
Pull out a pair of large huggie hoops if you've put together a look but still need that additional touch to take it to the next level.
You may match the color of the hoops to your dress or personal tastes.
For example, perhaps most of your jewelry is gold; therefore, you want to wear a pair of large gold hoops with your attire. Or maybe you've decided to wear your silver jewelry on a specific day and want to wear matching hoops.
You can't go wrong with any of the gold huggie earrings you select! Pair your hoop earrings with a strong red lip for an additional bonus and splash of color. Consider pushing your hair back from your face to highlight your lips and earrings.
Pair your hoops and red lip with a basic blouse and torn jeans for a daytime look. If you need to spruce up your look, hoops and red lips look great with an evening gown or festive holiday costume.
Consider wearing many pairs of hoops in varied sizes if you have more than one piercing per earlobe to create a more detailed look. For example, some people wear the largest pair in their primary holes and smaller pairs in their second or third holes.
You may mix and match hoop earrings sizes and metal hues to create a unique and eye-catching style. This allows you to display your originality and distinctive flair.
Stay On-Trend and Comfortable With Huggie Earrings
Huggie earrings compliment any outfit or style. They look beautiful in anyone's ears, but they are also comfortable, trendy, and easy to wear since they don't feature an annoying earring back.
