So 70’s but yet really 90’s and that is exactly my aestetic. I’ve always wanted a Chanel or Moschino one. I just love the way they look. Chain Belts are way more delicate than a solid leather belt but packs so much of a punch. I have been loving styling them into my wardrobe and they have been working well for me. Not just with dresses but skirts too. I think they are a great accessory to add into your party look for this time of year. Go all 70’s disco and add a chain belt to a jumpsuit or jazz up your Winter woolies effortlessly.
My first encounter with chain belts this year was several weeks back. I was agonising over what to wear to the Irish Blog Awards, when my daily ASOS scroll served me just what i was looking for. When i cast my mind back, i have worn these in the past , circa 2004/2004 with gyspy and or denim skirts. In silver if my mind serves me right and more charmy than statement. I enjoy slogans and novelty things like this so the lettering options are right up my street. There are some standard belts with chain details too if that is more your thing. I’m even seeing skirts etc with chain belts done onto them as a piece.

These belts look really well even over the most casual jumper dress. They just add another element, one which is seriously cool. Wear really like you would with any other belt but be prepared to take your outfit to the next level. Waist or hips. Jeans, skirts , dresses or knitwear. Around jumpsuits or pencil skirts for a really retro glam feel. I have found these belts a lot more comfortable to wear too and really easy to adjust. Admittedly i was worried about the sizing of the ASOS lettered belt. I had my kit out ready to add on some spare chain if needed. But as there was a hanging piece i was able to just include that into the waist easily with room to spare. You could technically make one of these yourself. Get creative with some old bag straps or necklaces.
