The cross is an ancient icon that has been worn for centuries. Originating as the symbol of Christ on the cross, in the last fifty years it has been taken up by fashionistas and today wearing a cross necklace is more a sign of being a hipster than a Christian. Crosses are big right now, worn on long chains for that summer grunge look, or it can have a more goth appeal worn with a bustier and ripped shorty shorts. So many celebrities have been spotted sporting a cross necklace from Madonna to Kim Kardashian. A small discreet cross on a dainty chain looks really cute, especially with a pair of denim jeans.
