Regular ol' circular hoop earrings are not going anywhere — that can be said for sure. Sometimes, though, it's fun to switch things up, and what better way to do that than with a different geometric shape entirely? Huey Lewis and the News (and Patrick Bateman...) were right about one thing: It is hip to be square.

That's the magic of earrings in general. You can have one or you can have 100. You can do tiny little hoops or something heart-shaped. You can adorn yourself with all the colors of the rainbow or throw it back to the '90s with some puka-esque shells. "There's something for everyone" is kind of played out as a selling point, but only because it's true.

Whether they're a minimalist metallic or have a fun charm attached to the bottom, there are plenty of options to work into your earring rotation. Shop 14 of our favorites below.
