There seems to be a gradual shift afoot, away from the oversized, joint-restricting knuckle rings that have dominated 2012. I’m not knocking it, heck, I’m a major advocate (here’s proof). I’m even wearing one and struggling to type with my index finger as we speak.

Delicate, inoffensive (e.g. you wont get arrested for potentially wearing a weapon and having to wail ‘but it’s just my unicorn knuckle duster, Officer!’) these skinnies have the potential to be extremely creative and original. If the Bohemian look isn’t for you, or if you aren’t currently trying to channel your inner Jessa from Girls, perhaps you may not get sucked in. But if boho is your bag, then mark my words, come Summer you will be willing to selling your grandma for a collection of skinny knuckle rings, a pair of Minnetonkas and a one way ticket to Coachella (holograms included).
