It was the way it added attitude and chic essential to plenty of outfits that endeared it to many. The only rule when wearing this sassy jewelry is to make them as big as possible.

In 2021, this outfit can be paired with any kind of top depending on what look you intend to achieve..
Also known as cashmere, this trend was introduced by Coco Chanel in the 20th century, but it wasn’t until the 90s that it became cool and youthful.
