Body chains have become all the rage this summer. For any of you that follow Alexis Ren on Instagram, you already know how to rock one. But for many of us, we don’t even know what they are. In short, a body chain is jewelry for your torso, ankle, wrist, or anywhere. Of course, many of us think, why not just wear a bracelet, anklet, necklace, etc. But body chains are more than that. They start like a necklace around your neck, dangle down your chest, and then loop around your waist. They are cute, and they highlight your curves.
You can find body chains in most jewelry stores, and Icing and Forever 21 have the cheapest ones. They carry body chains, head chains, wrist chains, and ankle chains. A wrist chain is a bracelet connected to a ring, and an ankle chain is the same except on your foot and ankle. A head chain is like a chain that wraps around your head, but also has a chain connecting across the top of your head. They are usually blinged out a bit, as well. There are also shoulder chains, they start like a necklace, but drape around your shoulders.
I have a few favorite ways to wear a body chain. The first is actually at the beach. Simply wear it beneath your bikini and wait for the compliments to come. It is simple and cute, but still adds the perfect amount of bling to a simple look. You will be surprised how comfortable it is, you may even forget you have it on.
Body chains also look fabulous at concerts. Whether you wear a body chain over a cute tank, or a head chain, or a shoulder chain, whatever chain you want, you look fabulous. It gives the perfect edgy vibe while still being cute and girly. It makes you look boho chic and ready for any music festival with Vanessa Hudgens and Kendall Jenner.
They also look awesome just hanging around. Going to an amusement park and still want to look cute? Layer a body chain over high waisted shorts and a tank top. You don’t have to worry about it falling off because it is wrapped around your whole body, and unlike earrings, they won’t put holes in your head on a roller coaster.
There is a reason body chains have become so popular, they are cute and easy to find, not to mention pretty cheap depending on where you look.
