How to Style Body Chains

POV: You’re rifling through your closet trying to pull together a snatched outfit to go meet your besties, but everything you own feels boring. This is where a body chain can be a total gamechanger. Popular in the noughties when music videos were the currency of trend-setting, body chains were worn by fashion icons Paris Hilton, Destiny’s Child, and J.Lo. They are the perfect accessory for blinging up your ‘fit and are super flattering when worn around your waist.

Body Chains and Denim Jeans

Beyonce was not shy of a body chain or two and neither should you be. Back in the early 2000s, Queen B used to rock hers with low-rise jeans, a crop, and a seriously fierce attitude. Think her “Crazy in Love” era where she slayed in a rhinestone top on her album cover. Looking to bring some Beyonce style into your closet? Grab our Rhinestone Body Chain Bralette to wear over a black top with jeans.

It’s about that time to bring it back. Throw on your fav FOREVER 21 jeans, our white or black crop and our Rhinestone Body Chain with a pair of translucent heels to complete the ‘fit.

Or, use J.Lo’s “Love Don’t Cost a Thing” to inspire you and rock this chain with a white satin cami, white blazer and oversized shades. J.Lo totally crushed the body chain style in the noughties and we’re here for its revival. Rock this ‘fit to brunch, to the mall, or out for dinner. It’s the perfect drip for daytime rolling into nighttime activities. 

Body Chains and Dresses

If you’re looking to jazz up your ‘fits for evening shenanigans, a body chain is an excellent way to pull together the look. Wear our Rhinestone Dollar Sign Body Chain over your black bodycon. Complete the style with a pair of black ankle booties, a denim jacket and black fedora for a chic outfit to wear to a cocktail bar with your besties.
