Step aside pom-poms and fringe. There’s another earring trend taking over.

Introducing, acrylic.

Yes, mom’s plastic earrings from the ’80s are back again. In fact, according to Pinterest, saves for this fun style are up 143 percent since last year, which means now is as good of a time as any to get to your fix.

While traditional tortoise hoops are what we normally think of when it comes to acrylic, they aren’t the only style getting thrown into the mix. This summer, expect muted colors, PVC-inspired drop earrings and even embellishments and funky geometric shapes. Basically, the sky’s the limit (as long as they’re oversize).

And, let’s be real, this trend couldn’t have come at a better time (aka when it’s unbearably hot outside). So throw your hair back into a pony and let your lobes do the heavy lifting. (You’re trendy, OK?)
