Everyone knows zippered denim is back in style, and the chain strap purse is an ultra-chic classic; but who knew exposed zippers and chain details would be making their way to so many clothes and accessories? We love the look of chain or exposed zipper details on tops, dresses, skirts, shoes, and accessories. These extra details are the wow-factor in an outfit. We are seeing tons of chain details on clothing: from built-in necklaces to exposed zippers to chains mixed with crystals.
Here are a few pieces we are dying for right now:
Rebecca Taylor Knit Chain Tank in Storm, $211. No need for a necklace with this fun chain-decorated tank top in the coolest of greys.
LaROK Ruffle Dress with Chain Detail, $178. We love the juxtaposition of the chains and crystal on this slub jersey tiered dress. Makes us feel like we’ve got the devil on one shoulder and an angel on the other.
Alice + Olivia Silver Curved Hem Tank Dress, $297. We absolutely adore the versatility of this dress – you can wear the chain alone as a necklace or belt it through the loops of your jeans.
Zipper Flower Ring, $12.99. An unexpected dichotomy of a metal-edged bloom.
Silence & Noise Silk Zipper Dress, $68. Dolman sleeves, soft, fluid silk and just the right amount of zipper detailing gives this dress a feminine yet tough appeal.
Jeffrey Campbell Ruffle Ballet Flats, $110. Leather zipper ‘petals’ adorn the top of these supple flats.
Ella Moss Bailey Zipper Back Tank, $96. There is so much going on on this simple looking tank. Pleats, ruching, and a single elongating zipper down the back.
