SS06 Accessories Trend: Gold Chains
On the catwalk:
All over the shirt dress in Stella McCartney SS06 runway.
On the cardigan in L.A.M.B. SS06 runway.
But mostly, the chains are to be worn as necklaces. Wear them bold to enhance your oh-so-fashionable neo-minimalism outfit this season:Both by Kenneth Jay Lane.
This pretty one is from Anthroplogie.
From Urban Outfitters.
Or if you want to be a bit different or you just prefer slightly daintier necklaces, choose these not so bold ones: (But don't wear these chains too dainty, or else it will just blend in with your outfit and you will look super boring.)
As seen on Mary Kate Olsen in March 2006. Multi-strands of smaller gold chains is the way to do this look.
By Lee Angel Jewelry.
Another different approach would be to wear it as a sort-of-belt, as seen below on Nicole Richie:
For the people who want to wear this trend but not look too weird wearing only a gold chain as a belt: This leather-chain belt is from Urban Outfitters.
I MUST emphasise here that this trend is to be worn in an elegant, well-dressed way, NOT bling.
