Gold Chain Belts Are Summer’s Hottest Trend

September 24, 2019

The 90s love affair with gold chain belts is back and we’re jumping for joy. The must-have accessory is cramming up our Instagram feed with the likes of Kylie JennerChronicles Of Her and Bridget donning the trend. From leather trimmed styles, to gold chains with dangling charms, and our favourite the clam shell gold chain – they’re back bigger than ever.



We're tracing the trend back to the late '80s early ’90s, when it was the fashion accessory thanks to designers like Chanel and Versace. Here you can see two of the original super models, Naomi Campbell and Carla Bruni head-to-toe in Chanel in a photoshoot for Karl Lagerfeld back in 1994. The iconic leather trimmed Chanel chain belts adding that statement factor to their high waisted bikinis and PVC heel outfit. Now in 2019 we’re seeing the resurgence of this vintage gold chain belt trend and we’re all for it.

When paired with your favourite high cut one piece swimsuit, jeans and tee, over your blazer or with a simple silk slip, this 90s gold relic looks refreshingly modern and with a vintage glamour twist. 


The key to rocking the gold chain belt is to keep the rest simple. Unless you're from the Bella Hadid school of thought, in which case, wear it with the loudest, most garish prints you own.
