Piece of the Week: Alison Lou x LoveShackFancy Jelly Hoops
The cult-favorite hoop earrings get a fashionable update.
The trappings of youth—AOL dial-up internet, Spice Girls and renting a movie at Blockbuster video—all are comforting reminders of an era that feels familiar and certain because, well, we’ve lived it.
If there’s one accessory that instantly transports us, in Proustian fashion, to our Nanopet- and Tamagotchi-toting days, it’s the jelly sandal, which we wore in a variety of rainbow-tinged hues to match our friends’ shoes.
In 2018, Alison Lou transformed shoppers’ love of a throwback into jewelry courtesy of her “Jelly Hoops,” which boasted all the feel-good childhood associations in a flattering, wearable lucite hoop earring.
Dubbed “Loucite,” the Jelly Hoops scream warm weather.
In time for this summer, the latest Loucite hoops are a collaboration with LoveShackFancy, the clothing line that knows a thing or two about mining the past for modern inspiration, championing vintage-inspired prints in effervescent dresses.
The Alison Lou x LoveShackFancy Jelly Hoops come in two sizes, and three floral prints, all plucked straight from the latter’s dresses.
The “Piece of the Week” medium hoop earrings pictured at top are made of lucite and 14-karat gold-plated brass, and sell for $165 on AlisonLou.com.
