Chain Accenting

I was trying on various belts on Monday for these particular low rise Benetton skinnies. Nothing was really working.  
Actually, these denims have never looked attractive in belts as they hit me at the widest part of my body - a belt just highlights it.  

What I needed was something slung.  And a bit dressy to go with my blazer and gold cuff.  Then I realized, my thrifted black and gold chain necklace would be perfect.  
So I attached both ends of the necklace to parts of my jeans.  

Not a belt, but just the right accenting that I needed.



blazer: thrifted / asymmetric top: Asos / denim: Benetton / earrings: Tory Burch / flats: thrifted / cuff: Nordstrom

I am totally loving this!  I think on my next thrift trip, I'm going to look for long necklaces to go further with this.  It'll be a great look for Summer skirts and dresses!

  1. How cute!! Excellent idea. I've done the opposite--used a belt as a necklace by wrapping it around twice. Gotta love items that can be multi-purpose.

  2. I have worn chains like this on my pants since high school, very cool accessory I have to admit.
    Moreso, I love your shoes! I don't believe we have been introduced?

  5. You are looking particularly lovely today! Giving great face! And, sometimes a casual look speaks to me more than a dressed up one.
