Though chokers seem to having their moment in the spotlight right now, there's another rising accessory trend that just might be the next big thing: body jewelry. The category includes everything from adventurous pieces like septum and eyebrow rings to subtle statements like delicate body chains.
The Business of Fashion took an in-depth look at the trend's growing popularity, reporting that Los Angeles–based brand Jacquie Aiche, for instance, saw a nearly 100 percent increase in body chains sold in 2015.
Meanwhile, MatchesFashion.com's buying director, Natalie Kingham, told BoF that the site first tapped into the trend via Givenchy's septum rings from F/W 15. “With so much more visibility of show looks and coverage on social media, the customer is increasingly educated and aware, which has created more desire for the pieces shown on the runway,” Kingham told BoF. “Our customer is willing to take more risks.” So, how willing are you to try the trend?
