Chain Necklaces Are This Season’s Hottest Accessory

Time to embrace your inner 2 Chainz

Written By Sarah Ben Romdane

Since the emergence of hip-hop in the 1970’s, chains have appeared on every rapper’s neck – from Kurtis Blow to Migos, and 50 cent along the way.

 

Whether opulent and diamond-studded or minimalist and golden, chains have emerged as the ultimate statement piece worn by rappers to show off their wealth. But with fashion taking cues from hip-hop culture, and streetwear aesthetics taking over luxury fashion, it’s safe to say that chains have definitely made their way to the mainstream.

 

Actually, they’re this season’s must-have—and we’ve rounded up 5 of our favourites you should get now.
