One of the things you have to know about me is that I love the ~*aesthetic*~ of the early 2000s. Despite being a child during that time (LOL), I've consumed enough content as I grew older to know what was trendy during that era. It also helps that brands are releasing Y2K-inspired collections, making the fashion of the early aughts more accessible to everyone.
One of the trends I noticed making waves on Insta are rings made out of polymer clay, resin, or acrylic. They come in all sorts of designs and are vibrant and chunky—in fact, the chunkier, the better! You can wear them alone or stack them on top of each other for the ultimate Y2K throwback.
