Jhumka, Hoop, and Drop (Earrings) are back in Vogue

Jhumka, Hoop, and Drop earrings ruled until the 90s and now, these excessively large metal bobs, are making their way back into fashion. In 1966, “Jhumka Gira Re, Bareli Ke Bazaar Main,” a song from the movie ‘Mera Saaya’ intensified the sweeping appeal of earrings. Ever since then, designers have put a great deal of effort, in augmenting these dangling ornaments. (so that we could make a style statement) In modern times, Online Shopping portal Myntra has made available an exclusive collection of vintage & modern earrings, for you to find your dream pair, at any given hour. Marrying exquisite designs and festive trends, Myntra is keen on adding a sparkle to your big day.

Jhumka, Hoop, and Drop are back in Vogue

What makes Jhumkas and drop earrings so appealing? Well, first of all, they can easily be paired with almost anything from dresses to a swimsuit. Although, the shoulder-sweeping hoops should be worn with, off-shoulder pieces and collared tops. I have gotten back into the traditional, double hanging Jhumkas. Here let’s have a look at all the trending “ethnic and chic” earrings selling for over 50% discounts.

Are Hoop Earrings cultural appropriation?

In my opinion, Hoop Earrings are a trend, not a part of any cultural association. Even though, across many tribes, Hoops exist as symbols of rebelliousness and identity. To others, hoop earrings are, simply a current fashion trend. On Myntra, I shortlisted a bunch of hoop earring you shouldn’t miss. Start with Pink Heart Shaped Hoop Earrings by DressBerry and then move on to Stone-Studded Antique Hoops by PANASH, Silver & White Circular Hoops by Johareez, Gold-Toned Circular Hoops by Krafftwork, and Gold-Plated & Purple Contemporary Hoops by Voylla.

Whichever of these designs you choose to wear, I’m pretty sure you will look like a diva. With festivities in the air and wedding season on the edge, get yourself a gorgeous pair from Myntra’s Earrings collection. Whether you fancy, Deepika Padukone’s drop earrings or Madhuri Dixit’s favourite Jhumkas, this one-stop shop delivers all. By the way, the practice of wearing earrings is also an acupuncture treatment, said to improve the health of the intestines. Now, who wouldn’t shop to stay fit right?
