Apologies in advance for the subtle brag, but I wear a lot of amazing outfits. There isn't a day that I don't get dressed up, and styling a look is my favorite part of my morning routine. The reason I tell you this is that I want you to know that you'll find me in a lot of memorable looks. Despite that, there are always a few that are the strongest in my memory bank. The look you see pictured above is one of those for me. I remember I had been praying that the dress I wore would arrive on that very day, assuming it would be everything I dreamed of so I could wear it to the fabulous dinner party I was attending. It surely arrived on time, but it felt like something was missing when I put it on. 

My chain belt was the perfect finishing touch and led to dozens of compliments. Everyone wanted to know where I got it and was inspired to try it for themselves. Well, I'm here to tell you that if you don't have this in your closet, you'll be surprised by how useful it can be. Rarely is an accessory so good that I give it a dedicated story, so if that isn't enough to convince you, I don't know what is. Scroll on to see the 29 chain belts that you should consider wrapping around your favorite dress or jeans.

Shortly thereafter, she interned at Elle magazine and instantly knew that editorial was for her. After graduating from the University of Notre Dame, she worked for ShopBazaar, contributing regularly to, and finally made her way to Who What Wear, where she is an associate editor.
