We don't know about you, but when we hear the words "chain mail," three things automatically come to mind—and none of which are particularly appealing. One, medieval knights jousting in clunky metal armor; two, the spam messages lurking creepily in untouched folders of our email accounts; and three, Avril Lavigne in the early 2000s. In short, chain mail is, well, dated.

Kristen Stewart begs to differ, though, showing us how to do goth the achingly chic way. For a dinner held by luxury label Chanel in West Hollywood, the actress teamed a silver chain mail knit crop top with black a la Parisienne high-waisted cigarette trousers and patent leather brogues, proving that a dash of menswear suiting can alleviate any look. Plus points for that adorable padlock necklace! Don't worry Kristen, you've definitely got the key to our fashion-fueled hearts.
