This story originally appeared on InStyle.com.
Summer 2020 was pretty much canceled thanks to the pandemic, so it's no surprise everyone is looking to have tons of fun and get extra bold this summer, especially when it comes to their going-out style. After spending a year in stay-at-home clothes, all this built-up fashion energy is manifesting in the form of a nostalgic accessory trend that relies on bright colors and eclectic designs: summer camp jewelry.
Remember those days spent picking out your favorite colored strings and braiding friendship bracelets with your besties? Or stringing together the most mismatched array of neon beads to create a personalized necklace? Well, that style has made a comeback this summer in a big way. The trend can be budget-friendly and it's celebrity-endorsed, with Vanessa Hudgens and Sofia Richie having been spotted wearing this $32 Custom Rainbow and Pearl Beaded Necklace from The Sis Kiss.
Ariana Grande hasn't just embraced chunky rings—she's also shown off stacked beaded bracelets on Instagram. If a playful piece similar to this is just what your jewelry tray needs, The Sis Kiss has stacked Custom Rainbow and Pearl Beaded Bracelets and Etsy has super brightly hued Y2k Customizable Name Beaded Bracelets you can add to your cart. But if you're someone who always preferred braided summer camp bracelets to beaded ones, do not fret, because Etsy has you covered with this highly-rated friendship bracelet. There's also this Boho Surfer Bracelet Set from Amazon, which is perfect for anyone who can't decide which style they prefer, since it gives you the best of both worlds by stacking together a beaded and a braided bracelet.
If you're ready to pack your summer 2021 with nostalgia and playful accessories, here are some of the best summer camp jewelry pieces waiting for you across the web.
