When it comes to beauty and style, knots have always seemed to get a bad rap. For instance, no one likes knots and tangles in their hair, and knots in your shoelaces continue to be a major obstacle when you’re trying to slip your lace-up booties on and head to work in a timely fashion! But the latest in jewelry trends will have you rethink all those negative things that may have had you avoiding knots in the past. Knotted chain jewelry is statement-making in a strong and sexy, yet elegant way. It’s simple but catches the light in all the right ways without looking ostentatious or overwhelming your outfit, and these looks can even pass off as slightly rocker-chic in their use of mixed metals without coming across as too edgy. Instead of silver hoops or plain metallic studs, go with simple chain knots like these from Lauren by Ralph Lauren for a unique on-trend look. For a mixed textile look, I love this leather and chain knotted necklace from Ann Taylor Loft, but for something a bit simpler, this pendant knot necklace from Express is the perfect addition to your jewelry collection! And lastly, if a bracelet suits your style more, check out this multi-chain bracelet by Guess!
