19 fresh takes on the gloriously nostalgic charm bracelet


Wear your hear, dog, and traffic cone on your sleeve.

The Tiffany charm bracelet—or the knockoff I owned—was the accessory to have in middle school. Nowadays you don’t have to wait until your next dance recital to add a miniature silver ballet slipper to your collection, and you can even buy a bracelet with all its charms intact. It is a subtle throwback that doesn’t scream ’90s nostalgia (but we’re into that too). Click through our roundup to curate your own meaningful charm bracelet with a classic style, take the easy route with campy embellishments, or cop the runway version seen at Alexander McQueen. Either way, all of your friends will still be totally jealous.
