If you're lucky, your mom has a treasure chest of late 70s/early 80s era bangles, slinky Michelle Pfieffer-in-Scarface dresses, or Debra Winger-in-Urban Cowboy style denim. For the rest of us, we'll have to rely on the new crop of modern pieces designed with the decade in mind.
One such example we can't stop daydreaming about is this minimalist wooden choker from Sophie Monet's spring/summer collection, which the perfect amount of tribal inspo previously re-popularized in the 70s. The LA-based designer, who we've been watching for years, created a simple, wearable shape that still creates a statement. And in our eyes, that statement is chic, summery, and touched with a dose of nostalgia. We've got a feeling mom will also approve of the accessory.
