We all had one: a bracelet, a necklace, perhaps even earrings that symbolized the person we took full claim of in our younger years— our best friend.
Most of us enjoyed the broken heart necklace, identified on each side with "best" and "friend." Some dabbled in the summer camp-inspired trend with beaded, matching bracelets.
Well reclaim your finest friends, ladies, because the friendship bracelet got a makeover, and it's looking pretty damn good.
Frieda and Nellie, by Stacey Herzog and Sarah Reid (best friends themselves), honed in on their eye for design and affection for bling to create this one-of-a-kind (and quite chic if I do say so myself) wrist decorum line.
They're similar to the "business in the front, party in the back" mullet... except not at all. The woven Cherokee pattern is reminiscent of our childhood, while the rhinestones bring a certain flea market, vintage-y vibe to the table. Wear one (or multiple!) on a date, to a soiree, at the pool and definitely Coachella. Not to mention, it's not weird to match it with someone else— if they're your best friend, of course. Imagine these as a fun and sparkly gift for the bride or your bridesmaids! To die for. The best part is that each piece is handmade and one-of-a-kind.
Hollywood's elite have gotten their hands (and wrists) all over these babies, including the likes of Nicole Richie, Christina Aguilera and Miley Cyrus. (Hey, Nic & 'Tina are good friends, perhaps they gifted each other with a bracelet?) With shout-outs from InStyle, Marie Claire, Vogue and online treats such as The Daily Candy and Refinery29, it's no surprise these beauts are the ultimate must-have.
