Trends come and go, but the really good ones become staples for longer than just a season. Unlike the neon color trend and the '90s fashion revival, paper clip chains are the trend that looks like it's here to stay for a bit. The dainty little chains look like, well, paper clips all hooked together. Except, the accessory is way more high-end. Everyone from the Kardashians to Lala Kent are loving paper clip necklaces, which means there are plenty of options for you to shop at every price point (via E! Online). If you love the look, there's an option for you.

It's not just celebrities that are loving the trend either. According to Volume One, trend casters are naming paper clip necklaces as one of the biggest trends of the year as well. "We are seeing a lot of whimsical, free-spirited designs that feature personalized initials, astrology, paper clips, and talismans," an expert from Lasker Jewelers tells the publication.

It's not just the price point that gives you a lot of options, either. There are tons of different styles of paper clip necklaces (via JCK). While some people like to stick to the classic, minimalist trend and wear a single necklace, there are chunky, jeweled, and pre-layered options out there. You can take this trend and totally make it your own. Here are some of the best options out there at every price point, so you can join in on the trend. 

Commit to paper clip chains with 18K gold

Let's just jump right in and commit, shall we? If you know that this trend is for you, Mejuri is a great option for you. The sustainable, fair priced brand makes tons of different paper clip chain options that are absolutely gorgeous. The brand's Bold Link Chain Necklace is perfect for those looking to make a statement with the trend while the Boyfriend Bold Chain Necklace is a little more dainty.

Not to mention that each of the pieces are also perfect for easily layering with other Mejuri pieces or ones from other brands. This is the staple jewelry that you want in your life. If you're going to commit to the trend, then this brand is for you. Each piece is long-lasting and timeless.

Opt for a more affordable option

If you're looking to go the more affordable route, Amazon has some incredible options. Like, 15,000 reviews and a 4.6 star rating incredible, as E! Online has found. M Mooham's pre-layered necklace takes two trends and combines them in the chicest way. You get a paper clip chain that's not quite choker length mixed with a longer initial necklace all for a whopping $15. Yes, you read that right. Oh, and it's available for Prime shipping so it'll be to you in no time.

The layering on that necklace is great, but there's an option for those of you looking for a little more as well. PAVOI also has a 14k gold plated necklace that's actually three different necklaces in one. There's a paper clip chain necklace and two classic gold chains with it. Ready for the best part? It's only $14.95 and has hundreds of great reviews. 

Whether you're minimalist or looking to go all out, you really can't go wrong with this paper clip chain trend.
