This post is inspired by my 15-year-old daughter who wanted a pair of plain gold hoops for spring. A big pair of simple gold hoops are always in style—like a classic button-down shirt (also a good combo–a button-down and hoops, see Sade below) or trench coat. You can splurge on new designs from Tilda Beihn or Spinelli Kilcollin. Or you can do what my daughter did and head down to Canal Street to New Top Jewelers—a favorite of young Voguettes and rappers alike, and pick out a 14k gold pair for under $100. I haven’t bought jewelry on Canal Street since my 20s, but am considering copying my daughter this time.
