Huggies are mom must-have. No, I’m not talking about diapers. I’m talking about earrings, my friends!
Huggies, otherwise known as tiny hoops that hug your earlobe, are the earring equivalent of your broken in pair of Levi’s. Your perfect yoga-class-to-girl’s-night pair of leggings. That diaper bag that carries wipes as chicly as it carries your laptop. You see where I’m going here. They’re simple, timeless and incredibly versatile by design but with added mom-friendly appeal.
For one thing, huggie earrings are the ideal set-it-and-forget it earring style. Most feature an easy-to-manage clasp that stays put so you don’t have to worry about chasing down a lost earring back, or worse, being left with one sad and lonely singleton. It also makes them super wearable 24/7 even while you shower, work out or sleep. And mamas of grab-happy (but still irresistibly adorable) babies, while this low-profile style isn’t always yank-proof, the smallest diameter huggies are a great choice for jewelry in this stage.
When it comes to choosing the right pair, there are a few things to consider, size and material being the most important. Solid gold obviously comes at a cost, but if you’ve got the coin, it’s a great investment. Gold is incredibly durable, making it great to wear everyday and leave on without worry they’ll tarnish or fade. They’re also hypoallergenic and safe for sensitive ears.
However, you don’t have to drop a ton of cash to score an equally awesome pair. Gold vermeil and plated metals are affordable and durable options (though vermeil will last longer with extra care and in a perfect world should be taken out when showering, sleeping or swimming.)
