If accessorising is your favourite part of putting together an outfit, you’ll love sunglasses chains.

While you might have thought necklaces and earrings were enough to embellish an outfit all on their own, frame chains are the 2021 accessory we never knew we needed. Pearl, beaded, resin and simple gold or silver chain styles are the perfect way to add an instant boost to a look, whatever your style.

Minimalists will naturally gravitate towards the simple chain styles, but if maximalism is your thing, colourful beaded and chunky resin styles must be better suited to your shades. They’re more versatile than you think, and many are using them on their face masks too. If you’re looking for a chain that will work for both pieces, make sure it has a clasp or clip fastening and you can use it all year round.

Frame Chain has been leading the trend since 2014 with their collection of beautiful glasses chains, and now many other high street brands are following suit. If you’re looking for a cheaper option, ASOS, Mango, River Island and NA-KD have plenty of adorable styles to buy now.

Here are 17 we love.
