It’s hard to imagine the ’90s without the following things – cheesy boy band music, beanie babies and of course, a diamante studded something (we could actually go on).
You might have worn an embellished hair clip, a necklace with your name encrusted with the stones or for those of us who went a little more extreme, we covered our cell phones entirely in them.
For Fall/Winter’17, the sparkly stones are back but this time round, they’re no longer pieces that might cause you to cringe inside – they’re still uber sparkly, much more glamorous and there’s a price range for everybody to get into the trend.
Like this set of crystal earrings, $680, and crystal choker, $1,910, from Miu Miu. Good for costume parties, good for elevating an everyday outfit.
