Once reserved for biker babes and jailbirds, chain details have expanded to invade our trendy winter wardrobes, and you don’t need to pack a tough-girl ‘tude in order to rock the look (though it certainly helps)! From chained-up booties to cozy scarves and even chain-covered handbags, chains successfully add some serious sheen to any outfit without overdosing on any unwanted bling or glitz. Mixed metals, contrasting textures, metallic accents – we love the way these chain-embellished accessories toe the line between girly and tough! They’re a sophisticated, attitude-infused alternative to sequins, rhinestones, and studs, and go with almost everything, from solids and prints to basics and statement pieces! Of course, don’t go too overboard with the trend – a few carefully-selected coordinating pieces make for a cool look, but you don’t want to weigh yourself down with too many chains!
