We’ve seen Becks rocking a trouser chain for a while now, with the handsome dad-of-four regularly roughing up his off-duty staples of jeans and a tee with a low-slung gold or silver pocket chain.
And it looks like VB’s been inspired. The 40-year-old fashionista sported her signature all-black wardrobe to Michelle Obama’s ribbon-cutting ceremony at the Anna Wintour Costume Center at the Metropolitan Museum of Arts over the weekend, but gave it a nifty SS14 update with the addition of a thick gold chain.
Attaching her chunky metal accessory to her left hip, VB gave her billowing black shift dress and fitted jacket combo instant edge and proved gold chains can look seriously chic with the right outfit and a little thinking outside-the-box.
We’re used to seeing chunky chains adorning necks, bags and skater boys’ bum-skimming baggy jeans, but never as a sophisticated partner for a pencil skirt.
We predict an army of street stylers recreating Victoria’s chainmail hip candy (because what VB says, goes) before you know it.
Hop on the trend before everyone else does…
