When you think of jewellery, your mind instantly goes to dainty gold necklaces, cute rings and hoop earrings, but in 2021 there’s another piece we’re going to be adorning ourselves with.
Body chains are one of this year’s most wanted pieces thanks to the Kardashian Jenner’s, who are also responsible for some huge beachwear trends this year. According to Lyst, searches for body jewellery have increased year-on-year and are currently up 98%.
While the rest of us have been in lockdown, the famous family have been sunning themselves in paradise. This has presented them with the opportunity of showing their followers their c13 of the best resin rings to shop right nowollection of bikinis, many of which have been teamed with the subtle jewellery piece.

Of course the emergence of the trend is not solely down to the family. Chanel, Dior and Jacquemus all sent body chains down the runway over the past few seasons, while it was also big in the 90s. Who can forget these looks? Now it’s finally catching on in 2021.
It’s also been reported that amongst the most popular iterations of the trend are Versace’s Greek motif body chain and Alessandra Rich’s pearl body chain, both of which will set you back hundreds – if not thousands.
For those of us not on a Kardashian budget, there are plenty of body chains available on the high street. For those feeling confident with the trend, team these with your bikinis or layer over bralettes to add another element to an outfit. For those wanting to make it more subtle, wear a belly chain under a jacket or cardi.
