Those addictive rings from your childhood are making a comeback

Calling all kids of the 90s (please tell me I'm not the only one who's this old), I have an exciting fashion comeback for you that will make you feel completely nostalgic.

Now there are plenty of 90s jewellery trends that we're happy to leave behind. Do tattoo chokers, power bead necklaces and dolphin earrings ring any bells?

However there is one joyful piece that's back on my radar, one which I'll be all too happy to wear again: the chunky ring. You know the one, kind of plastic looking, colourful and big, usually embellished with anything from dried flowers to glitter?

Well I'm starting to see it all over my Instagram on the fingers of influencers around the world, a sure sign that it's a trend worth having fun with this summer, perhaps even taking over from shell jewellery.

Celebs such as Bella Hadid, Sofia Richie and Kylie Jenner are also fans, and searches for colourful rings have also gone up on shopping platform Lyst since February, demonstrating the trend is filtering down to consumers as well.

Here are some styles you can buy now if you fancy a stroll down this sartorial memory lane.

In terms of styling, anything goes. Minimalists will want to tone it down with a simple dress or t-shirt and jeans combo, but maximalists will have fun stacking those rings up and pairing them with colourful summer dresses.

Remember, it's all about having fun.

Penny Goldstone is the Digital Fashion Editor at Marie Claire, covering everything from catwalk trends to royal fashion and the latest high street and Instagram must-haves.

Penny grew up in France and studied languages and law at the Sorbonne Nouvelle University in Paris before moving to the UK for her MA in multimedia journalism at Bournemouth University. She moved to the UK permanently and has never looked back (though she does go back regularly to stock up on cheese and wine).

Although she's always loved fashion - she used to create scrapbooks of her favourite trends and looks, including Sienna Miller and Kate Moss' boho phase - her first job was at, sourcing the best deals for everything from restaurants to designer sales.

However she quit after two years to follow her true passion, fashion journalism, and after many years of internships and freelance stints at magazines including Red, Cosmopolitan, Stylist and Good Housekeeping, landed her dream job as the Digital Fashion Editor at Marie Claire UK.

Her favourite part of the job is discovering new brands and meeting designers, and travelling the world to attend events and fashion shows. Seeing her first Chanel runway IRL at Paris Fashion Week was a true pinch-me moment.
