A staple in your jewelry drawer and on Versace's zany scarf print pieces, a gold chain remains the clear go-to glint for both die-hard, pared-back minimalists and avid lovers of that found-treasure vintage vibe. That said, here's how to rock them in 2020, outside of predictably layered chokers and their ilk.
1. On your purse
And we're not talking your usual demure, classic Chanel straps here. Bottega Veneta has Kelsey Merritt and Song Hye Kyo, among others, totally snared: Meet the new Chain Pouch, a chunky gold-linked version of the Italian house's supple famed clamshell clutch.
2. Down your spine
Alessando Dell'Acqua's N°21 has a suggestion. Why not link up your party in the back? A makeshift styling trick solution works as excellently, in case you can't seem to land paws on this exact scarlet sequined frock: Allow the long, loose end of a favorite necklace to dangle behind you, then saunter into your next big fete.
3. Around your hips
Liz Uy has actually been doing this since '18, but rest assured, it's a look that's still as hip (get it?!) right now. She's just always ahead of the curve, is all. Style yours today slung 'round slouchy, floor-grazing trousers or a smart tweed pencil skirt a la Virginie Viard.
4. As an anklet
Another point for Daniel Lee's BV, which is rightfully and deservingly greedy for trend direction creds. Nadine Lustre isn't the only famous fan of his fishnet-esque mesh Stretch pumps—flaunting that telltale signature exaggerated square beak, naturally—you can count Sarah Lahbati and Iza Calzado in, too.
5. Dangling from your glasses
Never worry about accidentally dropping your pricey designer specs in the toilet ever again. Laureen Uy is perhaps the local pioneer of sporting eyeglass croakies, in true cool grandpa spirit. And, as favor for the lewk climbs steadily, so widens the options array! Choose from metal links, tiny pearls, colorful glass beads...
