Sometimes figuring out how to pull off a new trend is tricky, and chain link necklaces are no exception. On first glance, chain link necklaces look big, overwhelming and like they belong on a rap star, but they can actually be understated and edgy when they are paired with the right outfit. Since we wanted to find out how to wear this new trend and share it with you, of course, we turned to style bloggers, Ashley, Shea and Julia, for some advice. These girls always know how to wear the latest trends and pieces. So if you want to try this one out, read their advice below and shop their looks. You’ll be showin’ off your chains and lookin’ like a fashion blogger before you know it.

Wear your chain link necklace…

1. With a cable knit sweater. Ashley of Ring My Bell paired her chain link necklace with a chunky sweater. Since cable knit can look kind of preppy or mom-ish, offsetting it with an edgy necklace is the way to go. Now, we know what you’re thinking. Yes, it’s a little too hot out for a sweater right now, so that’s why we chose this cropped sweater as an example. Roll the sleeves up, and it totally works for the summer, especially if you’re indoors. And besides, it’s never too early to start thinking about your fall wardrobe. Will you wear chain link next season?

2. With a leather skirt. Pair your chain link necklace with a leather or faux leather skirt. This look is perfect for a night out. Just turn to Shea for some outfit inspiration. We promise you can pull it off, too!


 Get the look: Forever 21 Moto Babe Faux Leather Skirt ($15.99, down from $22.80) and BaubleBar Jumbo Cuban Links ($42)

3. With a blazer. You can even wear your link necklace to work with a blazer, which will make it look a little more sophisticated. We actually found the exact necklace that Julia wore in her blog post for Gal Meets Glam. This one is really cool, because it has multiple chains with pink and coral accents.


 Get the look: Soft Joie Trevor Blazer ($188) and Stella and Dot Carmen Statement Necklace ($129.99)
