Chain Reaction

Throwback to the 80’s, and the chain scarf-print inspired trend dominated the fashion scene! Synonymous with luxury labels such as Versace and Hermes’, 2020’s version of chain print is elevated in a way that meets the modernist minimalist!

Surpassing the price tag in style and fashion, chain print has a way of looking permanently high-end, oozing luxe and glam! Zara and H & M are experts in producing chain-inspired print pieces for a fraction of the cost, most recently Zara’s collection of chain print dominated the store window displays for weeks.

Another celebrity fan of chain print is Victoria Beckham, who can be seen here, donning her own design wrap dress. The dress that I am wearing is an A-line shift style, boasting a slight retro 60’s feel.

The sleeveless short LWD (the black version of little white dress) can be styled a multitude of ways. Keeping to a modern minimalist version, I opted to keep my accessories very simple and let the iconic pattern make the statement.

(while my dress is not actually available in store as it was made for me, as mentioned before H & M and Zara are my top two go-to stores to shop this print)

This bold trend features an abstract and colourful pattern interspersed with chains in all shapes and sizes. When selecting a piece, opt for a shirt or blouse for up to the minute style and both can be worked into your weekend and work wardrobe. Chain print can be both bold and stylish at the same time.

If investing in a shift chain print dress, then team a bronze clutch and accessories for a light Summer look. Let the accessories compliment the look, whilst making a statement with a pair of sunglasses.

The sunglasses that I am wearing are from Decjuba, the round frames keep the 60’s feel alive with this look. Team a wedge for a hint of height or play it safe with a pair of sandals for a go anywhere look.
