3 Classy Ways to Wear Hoops
Hoops aren’t exactly the same as a revealing top or a questionably high hemline, but they can feel a little risqué in the workplace. Put all those hangups on the back burner, because we’re telling you they can be a major player in a sartorially successful getup. For your nine to five, skip the suit and pair those hoops with flowy high-waist trousers, a modern oversized top and sleek heels for the perfect blend of classic, boho and urban chic.

Dress up a psychedelic shift with a sassy pair of hoops and structured accessories that scream sophistication. The eye-catching baubles will no doubt play up this fanciful frock’s ’60s vibes, but a pair of luxe slip-on sandals will bring the look back to the 21st century (and keep your feet happy while you’re shakin’ it on the dance floor).
