Join the Chain Gang for Link Embellished Accessories


The multi-link chain has my heart all wrapped up for fall. I've been lusting over chain accessories as they add a touch of classic whimsy to any outfit. The classic chain and ribbon look was made famous by Chanel and now is reinterpreted by other designers, each adding their own bit of individual 'charm'! Chain links add a bold edge of metallic linkage to shoes, handbags, belts, wellie boots and jewelry such as the Lanvin pearl and chain necklaces leading the trend. An extreme example of this trend applied to shoes is the Camilla Skovgaard satin chain-embellished sandal with a dramatic rubber serrated sole. Metal, metal and more metal is every where and as I've said before it is best paired with black. If you've started your shopping for fall yet, you'd have to be blind to miss the tables full of metal studded booties and metal embellished accessories on display.

These chain accessories are a nice complement to the stud trend, but please wear with restraint. This is one trend you can most definitely shop your closet for. Most everyone has an old charm bracelet or link chained handbag in their closet. Perhaps pair the chain handbag with a white tee and skinny jeans and sky high black patent platforms.
