The Chunky Chain-Link Necklace Is Back, So Pull Out Your Old Tiffany & Co. Choker

I don't know what you've been doing on the weekends, but I've been digging through old jewelry boxes to try to uncover my chain-link Juicy Couture charm bracelet (it came in that gorgeous white box with a turquoise felt interior!). Meanwhile, you should be looking for your Tiffany & Co. choker. If Kim Kardashian has anything to do with it, we all should be. The entrepreneur, trendsetter, and mom of four has been styling her own chunky designs with hoodies and biker shorts, and Emily Ratajkowski followed suit when she celebrated her Nasty Gal collaboration in a very similar piece, which she layered with a second thin band around her neck.

While I'm sitting here reminiscing about the trend's virality in the early 2000s, the look actually hails from the '80s, when Versace and Madonna made it big. As you know, fashion's cyclical, so I'm not at all surprised the look has come back two times over, having been played up even more with fun charms when I was in middle school. You've probably already spotted chain-link on the accessory pages of your favorite sites, so if you don't have any cleaner on hand to spruce up that old Tiffany & Co. silver, we highly recommend investing in something new. Now my only question is: should I start clasping on some charms?
