80s girl-rap group Salt-N-Pepa are our jewellery icons this season - it's all gotta be gold, tacky and huge
If you have a soft spot for cheesy, tacky 80s and 90s fashion, which thanks to the likes of Ungaro and Henry Holland is now acceptable to admit to liking (any still from the Fresh Prince could easily be part of a lookbook now) then you’ll be all “OMG” over the upcoming jewellery trend, which is all about tackiness and over-the-top bling a la Salt-N-Pepa. S-s-s-s-s-Salt and Pepa’s here!
Last year you had to trek to the middle of a market in South London to buy jewellery like this but now the high street is cottoning on to it as well and replicating the retro styles of eighties jewellery – but if you enjoy the hunt, it’s worth digging through charity shops and vintage stores for the real thing.
This is not a trend for the shy and the meek – if you’re going to wear jewellery like this you have to wear it LOUD, and with the attitude to back it up. I’m going to go and practise my swagger right now while you guys check out the best ghetto-girl earrings you can get online in the gallery above.
