Girls on Multiple Continents Are Making This "Grandma Accessory" a Thing

There’s nothing I love more than stumbling across a great trend on Instagram. (In case you don’t believe me, here’s proof.) So when I recently noticed a rather unexpected one sweeping not just the nation but the globe, I couldn’t wait to share the news with team Who What Wear. Much like myself, my fellow editors responded first with surprise then delight at the apparent resurgence of the sunglass chain, otherwise known as the “fashion croakie,” when I showed them the photos I had seen. If you think about it, what could be better than an accessory for one of your favorite accessories? To put it in SAT terms: The sunglass chain is to sunglasses what the guitar strap is to the handbag—it can only make it cooler. So in hopes of winning you over regarding our new favorite adornment, we decided to round up photos that convinced us it's no longer just for grandmothers and share them with you today.

From Italy to Greece to Australia to both coasts of the United States, see below how fashion girls are wearing the trend all over the globe. Then, of course, shop our picks for yourself!
