Chain Gang

Recently I purchased a beautiful Givenchy Infinity Bag from a designer consignment shop, Refind, located here in Seattle. The bag is a gorgeous burgundy with a thick, silver-toned Cuban link chain up each side. The chain detail is what caught my eye in the shop, and I loved that it added an edgy feel to the classic bucket bag shape.

After that I seemed to be tending towards chain details on other fall items. From flats to jewelry, the chunky chain has a modern feel that elevates the piece it is embellishing. Here are a few of my favorites for this fall and into winter. 

No.21 Chain-Embellished Derby Shoes

No. 21 has a line of chain embellished flats, including the Derby Shoes above, and the featured image velvet pointed flats. For a more wallet friendly version, these ASOS Lise Chain Ballet Flats in black and white tweed are only $35!

Alexander Wang Chain Trim Turtleneck Sweater

Alexander Wang added chain trim that gives drama and polish to this turtleneck sweater, above. I really love the cool balloon sleeve on this sweater, and other pieces from this collection include a midi dress and a split cuff top. No need for jewelry with these cool details. 

Deborah Pagani Patent Leather Hair Clips

If you want just a little bit of edgy style, these Deborah Pagani patent leather hair clips are fabulous. They come in two sizes of black patent with a choice of four different chain colors. So cool. $45 and $65 for small and large, respectively. 

Ted Baker London Eloda Cardigan

A simple cream cardigan gets an update! The Ted Baker London Eloda Cardigan has a cropped body and open front and walks the line between ladylike and rock-n-roll with its chain link edges. 

Jenny Bird Toni Drop Earrings

You can find lots of chunky chain link bracelets, chokers and necklaces out there, I like to look for vintage finds, myself, however, this pair of Jenny Bird Toni Drop Earrings in silver plate are perfect. If I am wearing my chain link necklace I layer it up with pearls and longer chains to give it texture and dimension. 

Saint Laurent Monogram Tassel Chain Belt

This Monogram Tassel Chain Belt by Saint Laurent is on my wish list. It's like a modern chatelaine belt, just less practical with a lot more style. 

Layer up your chain link collection or find a piece that is embellished with one to add a dash of edgy chic to your look. Whether you are ZOOMing at home or around the city, it is an easy way to give your look a modern vibe. 

Happy hunting!
