Trend Alert: Ring It On
May 31, 2007
What: Rings in chunky, colorful plastic.
Summer is the perfect time to experiment with fresh fashion trends, but turning your closet into a fashion lab can get expensive quick. Plus, if youâ€™re like me, youâ€™re a little wary of taking big-time fashion risks because of your insane ability to lose the cutest things before theyâ€™ve lived up to their trendsetting potential (this annoying quirk applies especially to sunglasses). So thank goodness for this seasonâ€™s crop of big, bold, Bakelite-inspired rings. They come in juicy candy colors, and their oversized charm and lightness make them the perfect add-on to any outfit. Theyâ€™re bound to become a conversation piece. Whether or not you mention the practical prices (most ring in under ten bucks) is up to you.
Forever 21â€™s big yellow square ring ($3.80), Claireâ€™s black rose ring ($7.50) and Wet Sealâ€™s rhinestone square ring ($5) are quirky, youthful choices that definitely wonâ€™t break the bank. For more retro-style glass, Lucite and plastic rings to jazz up even the safest of summer wardrobes, head to ShopStyle.
