There may be no other hip hop song on earth that lit my fire more than when L.L. Cool J sang his ode to the “around the way” girl:

“I want a girl with extensions in her hair — bamboo earrings, at least 2 pair. A Fendi bag and a bad attitude? That’s all I need to get me in a good mood.”

Well, I feel this song was made for me. It took me a good long while to save money for the classic Reebok kicks and a fending bag , but I somehow talked my mom into the fake gold chain , bamboo earrings and poetic justice braids almost instantly. I wear them both regularly even to this very day.

My definition of an “around the way” girl is a neighborhood babe who looks just as hot in a pair of sneakers as some girls do in stilettos. A girl who can hold her own with the dudes, who has street smarts and sass galore. That girl is POISON! Who wouldn’t wanna be her? “Around the way” girls also have a personal style that’s fierce, colorful, totally boss and includes copious amounts of GOLD.

A pair of huge-ass gold earrings are the cornerstone of the “around the way” girl look, and the bigger, the better:
