Link Love: 3 Tips for Rocking Chain Jewelry

While the bubble necklace continues to headline accessory trends season after season, it’s time to make way for a new eye-catching statement: chain-link jewelry. The classic design has made a major resurgence this year, topping off both sophisticated outfits and edgier hip-hop-inspired ensembles (think Miley Cyrus). When rocking this versatile accessory, just keep in mind these three easy tips:

Mix Metals
Keeping precious metals separate can be considered a faux pas of the past. Mix silver, gold, and varying textures for accessories that give your outfit some serious dimension.

Layer Up
One of the best parts about chain-link necklaces? Their lobster-claw clasps allow for adjustable lengths. Simply throw on three or four (let one serve as a choker and the others hang longer) to give basic tees a shot of chic toughness.

Get Chunky
With this trend, the larger the links, the better. Next time you’re piling on arm candy, include a wide chain-link bracelet to serve as your stack’s focal point. It’ll also help anchor your thinner bangles so they don’t slip off.
