Wear them as statement jewelry on occasions or make them your everyday signature pieces, gold chains are a classic accessory and a must-have for every woman. Versatile and timeless gold can be worked into look that you are aiming to put together.
Here are 5 outstanding ways to wear your gold chain inspired by some of the best dressed celebrities of our times who wore theirs to perfection:
Long Chain with Hoop Pendant on Bright Solids
Duchess Kate wore her £49,000 Cartier ‘Trinity’ necklace to an Olympics-themed exhibition at the National Portrait Gallery on an electric blue Stella McCartney crepe dress and black Prada heels. The gorgeous white, yellow and rose gold neck-piece made up of a series of long chains linked to five diamond-studded hoops – a perfect representation of the Olympics. Hoop pendants look absolutely delightfully whether worn short whence they show the skin, or long where they pair with the color of your dress.
Layered short necklace on Black
Cameron Diaz looked picture perfect at the premiere of The Box in her RM by Roland Mouret “Electra” cocktail dress which she accented by a neck-piece made of layered thick gold chains. Same length layering looks great on dresses that leave you with ample space around the neck or a strapless dress.
Delicate Gold Chain on Nudes
Naomi Watts looked extremely pretty wearing a delicate, long gold chain by David Yurman over a nude-colored Calvin Klein slip dress which she paired with nude Brian Atwood pumps. A classic gold chain is a must for any timeless wardrobe as are subtle, nude colors.
Disk Pendant with Formal Blazers
Pippa Middleton added the right amount of feminism to her polished office look with a disk shaped pendant in a delicate gold chain as she left for work. A disk pendant is very versatile for everyday wear. Reese Witherspoon, Katie Holmes and Keira Knightley are also fans of the disk pendant. Pippa wears hers over a Marcus Lupfer dress in red, white and navy blue with a black blazer and tights.
Mix and Match
Sarah Jessica Parker added jazz to her green ruched Temperley London dress by layering gold chains varying in length and design. You can also mix and match link chains in different colors and metals to make a chunky statement piece around your neck. Start with a chunky chain that sits comfortably close to your neck and end with a long chain up to chest or belly-button length. Then, fill up in between.
