Is the Swag Right? Draped Body Chains

by on September 19, 2012

Since I’ve already given hair chains the green light, should body chains like this one be a new wardrobe staple, too? I’m on the fence about this body chain from NastyGal ($38) – yes, it’s over the top and yes, it’s potentially a weapon, but at the same time it’s a head-turning piece that could take any bland outfit to the next level. I see this looking good with a lot of dresses, as well as some flowy sheer tops with skinny jeans – probably better for nighttime/going-out wear since I can see this getting a lot of negative stares in a classroom setting, but cool nonetheless.

Rihanna, Beyonce, and Kim Kardashian were fans of body chains in the summertime, often pairing them with bikinis or outfits that were revealing from the front. A simple, thin chain can add an air of understated sexy to those kinds of looks, while a bolder chain like the one shown is more in-your-face, serving as an outfit maker.

Maybe I’m not so on-the-fence about body chains after all! I guess I’m leaning toward the like side on this topic.
