Trend Alert..Bigger is Back @ Chanel

Is it me or are the 90’s making a comeback when it comes to jewelry trends for Spring and Fall 2020?

Wayyyy back then… (in the 1990’s), jewelry was big and bold and definitely made a statement. Take a sneak peak at the Chanel Spring & Fall 2020 Collections  and you may notice that the jewelry featured looks verrrry similar to pieces inspired by the 1990’s. It’s bold and seriously  statement worthy.

Which leaves me to wonder..will shoulder pads be next. I guess we’ll have to wait and see.

They say that the 90’s are back.

When it comes to Chanel, I wonder if they ever left…

Chanel is  a classic.  This 1991 Chanel Jacket  worn by Supermodel Naomi Campbell looks like she is walking the Runway today.

Proof that Chanel is truly Timeless.
