Remember charm necklaces? If you’re anything like us, the last time you rocked the look was probably with french braids and braces.

So now that you’re a grown up, the last thing you want around your neck is something that brings you back to sixth grade, right? We thought so. Good thing updating the look for adulthood is easy-peasy. Pick pieces that are architectural and edgy, and don’t be afraid to layer charms that are different shapes. Here are 12 bad-ass options to get you started. Don’t worry—they’ll still go with everything.
