Hot Topic: Chunky Chain Necklaces April 21 2015

Want to up your fashion game this year? Then make statement necklaces a huge part of your sartorial choices for spring and summer. That’s right, folks, the chunky chain necklace is back en vogue, so put aside your cultured pearls for a few weeks here or there.

We’re sure you’ve all heard the glorious news by now – the 70s are back with a vengeance in 2015. But there’s something so gloriously 80s about the chain necklace that we think this is one trend we’ll adopt before we start channelling our 1970s inner goddess.

But what on earth to wear with it? Luckily, denim never really goes out of style and shirt dresses are huge news right now, so put a spring (and summer!) in your step with a denim shirt dress, complemented to perfection with a big old chunky chain around your slender neck.

That’s more of a daytime look, so if you’re planning a night out on the tiles over the next couple of weeks, what about a daring leopard print peplum strapless number topped off with a gold chain? A pair of leopard print sunnies finishes this one off perfectly – you’ll look the bee’s knees at the cocktail bar, that’s for sure.

Of course, this style isn’t for everyone – there’s something a little bit Mr Tee about it all – but you can easily pretty up your gold chains if you think they’re a bit too masculine by adding on some sweet little charms at varying points. Just don’t go overboard – it might get a bit heavy!
