What is a Leg Chain?
Simply put, a leg chain is a necklace for your leg. The leg chain has become the newest accessory on every girl’s bauble list. This is yet another blingy, delicate jewellery piece that’s been added on the fashion map. Celebrities like Vanessa Hudgens have already shown their love for the trend. The leg chain is an upgraded version of the anklet. Body jewellery is on a high right now, and this trend definitely comes as a major head turner. The trend of leg chains comes after arm chains, which were a big Boho rage. Leg chains are worn near the thigh and have a falling or waterfall pattern to them. Wondering how they stay fixed at that spot? It’s simple. The chain is attached to the waist like any other waistband. So, the portion that actually falls on the leg is hence adjustable and fits any leg size.

How do You Wear it?
Styling a leg chain is the easiest thing to do. Simply put it over your leggings or jeans (skinny jeans would be better) if you want the gold to shine. And if you want your jewellery to touch your skin, wear it with hot pants. Make sure you don’t accessorize a lot because leg chains make a bold statement, so keeping your overall look understated will direct attention towards your new ‘it’ accessory. Leg chains don’t come in pairs, so you can choose to experiment. If you’re bold enough, wear them on both your thighs. You can also select the type of leg chain you want to wear, from heavy duty and intricate to simple gold chains. Another cool thing about styling leg chains is that you could wear it in any direction. There is no wrong or right way. You could choose to show the beaded side on your back, or keep it on the front. The choice is completely yours. Either way, we’re totally crushing on this trend! And we hope you do too!
