Chain Gang

Chain detailing has been popular for a while, but here are some fresh takes to render the trend anything but tired.

I've long been a fan of Bing Bang jewelry for the way they layer a variety of delicate chains to create a modern, tough-meets-feminine aesthetic. I love that the chains have a duller finish, rather than the polished, bright and shiny look that screams "brand new." They already look like well-worn favorites. Bing Bang long mixed chain necklace, $426 @ Shopbop. Styling tip: I sometimes take the charm off of my locket and string the chain with a charm from a different necklace.

The length can be adjusted for different looks.

They've recently started doing belts. I love this skinny chain belt in sea-green. $299 @ Shopbop.

Gunegonda also has a unique take on the chain necklace. Mixed chain necklace with stones and grosgrain ribbon, $195 @ La Garconne.

A nod to Anglomania from Erickson Beamon for Shopbop. Plaid chain necklace, $63 @ Shopbop.
