How to Rock Resin Rings Without Looking Like You’re Still in Middle School

We love trends. They’re a great way to spice up your existing wardrobe. Think bike shorts and It shades, like solar yellow and cantaloupe. But not every trend is age-appropriate. Case in point: resin rings.

The colorful, usually chunky and often bedazzled rings aren’t exactly sophisticated. Basically, they’re the type of bauble you’d stack back in middle school. Although, if you search hard enough, you can find versions suitable for adults.

The key is to look for ones without gummy bears, oversized hearts and peace symbols. Easier said than done. Geometric shapes, cool designs and marbling are what you’re after. Some big names are getting in on the resin action. We’re talking Dries Van Noten, Maison Margiela and Marni.

Not convinced this trend has staying power? You can get the effect for under $30. Sometimes they come in affordable sets. Feel free to give away any sparkling ones in said sets to your niece or little cousin.
