Our Favorite Winter Accessories Are All Chained Up!

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!
