The Biggest Jewelry Trend You’ll Be Wearing In 2023
Link-and-lock jewels are all the rage — and here’s how you can wear them too!
If there’s one accessory trend that has defined 2023, it’s link-and-lock jewelry. As per the new season viral jewelry moments and runway report, you can’t have too many of them. The best part? Chains can be as subtle or bold as you want them to be, so they’re a perfect foundation for any foray into jewelry. But, this return to chain has definitely evolved to favour heavier link chains. Mixing different chain weights and lengths gives dimension to a stack of necklaces, rings and bracelets.
For spring 2023, emerging labels like Chopova Lowena and Collina Strada championed chunky chains on the runways. Elsewhere, Alaïa reinterpreted the chain-link as body jewelry, Schiaparelli with sculptural updates and Sacai with punk inspiration. What’s more? Present day It-girls like Emily Ratajkowski, Florence Pugh and ,Gwyneth Paltrow and Lizzo all love wearing chain-link jewels. And for good reason. These jewels upgrade any look, from everyday fits to red carpet-ready looks.
HOW CAN YOU WEAR IT NOW?
By mixing, matching and layering them in interesting ways. When you’re wearing a corset, create an impact with layered chains. A choker is often the most flattering for off-the-shoulder fits and you can pair it with a matching ring. Or wear your chain-link jewels with a simple T-shirt. A simple chunky chain and bracelet will elevate the tee, and those extra few seconds well spent will mean no one will be any the wiser of your rushed-off-your-feet morning. If you’re opting for tailoring in a bright hue, then keep things modern with a single chunky chain necklace – the bigger, the better.
