Trend: Chain Accessories

Trends in clothing and accessories are ever changing, and sometimes it can be hard to keep up with them all! But if you’re looking for some new accessories for the summer, a good place to start would be the chain accessories trend that seems to be popping up everywhere. Aside from the obvious Chanel-inspired chain strap bag, there are lots of new fun ways to incorporate chain accessories into your wardrobe this summer. Take a look at these seven must have chain accessories.

Chunky necklaces are always in, in some variation of style. This matte plastic necklace has a very clean look to it. Even though it is a dark colour, it is still a perfect light summer necklace. It would look great with a solid tank or tee and denim shorts.

If you are looking to dress things up a bit, then you could try a thick multi-chain bracelet like this one from Giles and Brother. It can be worn on its own, or layered with other bracelets to incorporate and mix different textures and styles.

Can you ever really have too many pairs of sandals? Probably not. And plus, you probably don’t already have a pair with chains on them. Therefore you would be completely justified in purchasing these J. Crew sandals (which are on sale too!) They will pretty much go with any outfit, and they have the cutest little kitten heel. What’s not to love?

The mixture of harsh and soft textures and styles is always a hit, which is precisely what makes this leather and chain wrap bracelet so wonderful. It comes in other colours, but this mauve colour is incredibly fresh and summery. It’s a perfect casual bracelet for everyday wear; and the price isn’t too bad either.

Chanel isn’t the only designer that can do chain strap bags! This one from Topshop is a different take on that popular look. The chain is a great length, and has a leather shoulder section so it won’t dig into your shoulder (how thoughtful!) It can also be used as a handbag, with its extra leather handle. Cute and practical – a winning combination.

Rings are already super cool on their own; but take two rings, attach them with a chain, and put a feather on them and you’ve got yourself one hip accessory. Similar rings have been spotted on many a fashion blogger, and now, thanks to Urban Outfitters, can be yours too. Layer some other jewelry on too and you’ll have a perfectly blinged out hand.

On the opposite end of the price spectrum, but at the top of the awesome spectrum, is this chain-trimmed wallet from Stella McCartney. The botanical print is taken straight from the designer’s spring/summer runway collection. You certainly won’t want to keep this exquisite wallet hidden inside your purse all the time.
