The Only Jewelry Trend That Matters Right Now

If you’re looking for just one jewelry trend to magically overhaul your entire look for the coming season, you’re in luck because it actually exists. Upon reviewing last week’s photos from Copenhagen—the unofficial start of fashion month—it's clear that our favorite stylish Scandinavians have set the trends for (at least) the next six months, and one It accessory has risen above the rest.

In conjunction with its omnipresence on Instagram and New Bottega endorsement, the chunky gold chain necklace was without a doubt the standout star of the week, which tells us it’s destined to be all over It girls in New York, London, Milan, and Paris, too. The best part? While there are, as always, the designer versions we can't help but covet, the trend is accessible at any price point, with one editor-approved option coming in at just $10. Ahead, see how fashion girls in Copenhagen wore their chunky, gold necklaces, and, of course, shop them along the way.

Don't worry. This trend goes with colors as well as it does with neutrals.

For an even trendier approach, pair your chain with one of the season's most popular prints.

Since starting as an intern back in 2013, Nicole Akhtarzad Eshaghpour has held several roles here at Who What Wear, and she is currently Editor-at-Large. It was a less expected route, seeing as she was graduating from business school at USC when this all began, but it has turned out to be the best one for her. Fast-forward to 2020, and she's moved to NYC from her hometown of Beverly Hills and spends her workdays a little differently from when she was an intern starting out. Currently, she focuses on a weekly mélange of shopping content. As far as her personal style goes, she's largely drawn to classic pieces and neutral basics but will always make an exception for something colorful, printed, or bejeweled as long as it's deemed worthy enough. After all, the only thing she loves more than a good party is dressing up for one. On weekdays, she can usually be found at home eating something delicious for dinner and trying to force her husband to watch 90 Day Fiancé.
