This Cool-Girl Accessory Is Surprisingly Versatile

While body chains are hardly new, their legitimacy on the fashion scene has become increasingly apparent thanks to It girl fans like Kendall Jenner, Gigi Hadid and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley. Delicate and alluring, the curve-hugging accessory is surprisingly versatile (and far more chic than we’d previously given it credit for), whether worn like Kendall for a night out or as part of an off-duty look. The key? Opting for a subtle style sans flashy embellishment—we love a fine, gold iteration for modern appeal—creating a look that reads sexy-cool when peeking out from under a blazer, crop top or slip dress. Here, four of our favorite takes to shop now, from a lariat necklace to body-draping styles.
