What to wear with a Body Chain Necklace: Summer Edition

I always get asked how to style Body Chains and what to wear them with, and you know what? They're way easier to wear than you think!

There are a pretty wide variety of Body Chains in the Dolorous collection, after all, the style was one of the foundations of the brand! Many of the styles of Body Chains I sell now are actually updated versions of ones I've been designing and selling since 2010! In my 8 years in the business the number one question I've been asked by customers is, without a doubt, 'What do I wear with my new body chain?' Well, here's the summer edition of my answer

Dolorous Jewelry Body Chain Styling what to wear with a bodychain.jpg

One of my favourite ways to wear my body chains in the summer is paired with sundresses, adding an unique and unexpected twist on a generally traditional look. With Choker style Body Chains or Harnesses you get the added bonus of them acting almost like a belt, and helping to add definition and emphasis to your waist, creating a super flattering silhouette, whatever your shape or size! 

The above shot from my SS18 lookbook is the perfect example, the Selia Choker Bodychain adds structure (and a little sexiness) to this super simple sundress. You could also layer the body chain underneath the dress, just peaking out at the top for a slightly more subtle look.

The Broad Collar Shoulder Necklace style of Body Chain, like the Sophia Broad Collar Bodychain shown here, looks amazing when paired with strapless dresses and tops, or your favourite spaghetti strap outfits! The draping lines are somehow laid back while also being undeniably statement making! 

For those of you who only want to dip a toe into the body chain trend you may want to try an understated anklet like the Stella Anklet shown above! Lololol, sorry for the terrible pun but seriously, this anklet is just the accent your summer cutoffs have been waiting for!

But even with all those great styling options, the first thing I typically suggest when I get the inevitable question about what to wear with a body chain, is a T-Shirt! There's just something so cool about pairing statement jewelry with a laid back jeans and a T look, and body chains are no exception to the rule! Just take it from Cailli Beckerman of BeckermanBlog who looks red hot wearing her Sophia Broad Collar Body Chain with an amazing vintage Simpson's T shirt, jeans, sneakers and a flannel. I could not be more into this outfit. (I'm also totally here for Sam's camo and silver statement jewelry combo with new Dolorous earrings and necklace).

Obviously you can also wear body chains with a ton of other styles, these are just a few of my favourites for this season. Want to tell me your favourite things to wear with your body chains? I'd love to hear it! Send me your thoughts and suggestions at contact@dolorousjewelry.com
