This season the bib necklace is reincarnated into a mix of longer and heavier metal chains. J. Crew offers a wide variety of strands to mix and match, or wear as-is.
The beauty is in the links this season as multiple strands of chain rub shoulders with pretty pearls and jewel pendants of yestertrends.
The look is chunky and heavy, intended to have presence and rough up this summer’s delicate ruffles and rosettes.
Staying within the nudes and neutrals colour family keeps the look fresh and mordern.
Wear the bib chain necklaces with flirty blouses or pretty cardi separates. If you go for a longer chain necklace, pair it over a t-shirt and add a bit of rock-and-roll to your casual look.
J. Crew styles this season's chain link necklace with pretty preppy looks for a modern take on an edgy, over-sized accessory.
Slipped in the collar of a crisp white blouse, this chain strand necklace packs a style punch.
The knotted chain look mixes gems, beads, pearls, and chains of various metal finishes. It's this season's take on the bib necklace. Imperial Necklace, $69.50 at Banana Republic
