What: Yin Yangs
When we wore it: mid to late ’90s
Why we hate them: We feel like it’s a little backwards to use the word “hate” for these stylish messengers of peace. But we will bring up some troubling questions like, why were the literally everywhere? And where did they go?
Why we love them: They were great doodling inspiration– as long as you got the proportions of the middle squiggle right. And aside from showing off your rad artistic skills, you could buy the necklaces that split the yin and the yang and give half to your gym partner as a sign of everlasting friendship.
Would we wear them now: Negative. But not because we wouldn’t want to, because they literally ceased to exist. And maybe we wouldn’t want to.
