We’ve been telling you about this for a while…layer on some gold chains…puhleeeese, my lay-dees! First spotted/reported HERE, via the Givenchy Fall 2008 Runway. Then, we later spotted the layers on Sarah Jessica Parker, HERE! So, when Madonna recently stepped out looking like she just left the Givenchy Fall 2008 Show, we just had to show you how to incorporate this trend into your daily wardrobe, pronto.
RunwayDaily has actually been sporting multiple chains for over a year now…and will earnestly admit that some funny looks were given, at first. But it’s usually those that get scared venturing outside their predominately Gap/Banana clad wardrobe (love the brands, but I them mix with other pieces too). It’s a risk, that’s certain…but if done right, layered gold chains can look Rock Star cool. Wear them with confidence and know you look like a bad-ass! Let me show you how to get it just right…for day and night!
I’ve provided you with a day and night look, above, that can quickly put all your chain layering questions at ease. Starting with the three necklaces…first, a long chain that hangs at the thinnest part of your waist, next a medium length necklace(s), ours is really 3 to 4 chains in ONE. Lastly, add a shorter layer than has some sort of charm on it. This will give the layers some depth and will not overtake your entire ensemble. Keep the layer of clothing under the necklaces very monochromatic and simple. Notice I chose a yellow sun-dress with a simple SWEETHEART neckline and a long black MAXI DRESS with simple CAPPED SLEEVES.
I also wanted to make sure to show you that the ONLY items you’ll need to trade for day into nighttime would be your DRESS/SHOES! Maybe you’d want to switch out sunglasses for a chic SCARF too! But voila for a transitional and functional new trend. Enjoy experimenting with this one…let your chain hang low for ANY soiree or day shopping! Enjoy!
