Belly chain comeback

The big 2000’s trend is back! After years of belly chains being considered tacky they are now a big fashion statement piece to add to any outfit. The 2000’s trend comeback became a thing on TikTok were teenagers were styling vintage clothes and soon it became this big aesthetic “y2k”. They are everywhere now too, almost every fast fashion shop will sell a belly chain so they are so easily accessible too.

Y2K belly chains

In 2000’s belly chains were worn very differently, the typical look was wearing the smallest top and low waist bottoms. It was also more of a belly belt they were so thick but now they are alot more delicate.

Runway looks

In 2020 Chanel styled belly chains with two piece suits and block colours to make it look bolder. The strongest piece of Chanel’s collection was Gigi Hadid wearing the two piece tweed suit unbuttoned. Instead of wearing low rise velour bottoms, now we’re seeing them paired with more polished looks. At Chanel, belly chains were added to skirt suits, bikinis, and jeans. At Jacquemus, with a cropped cardigan and suiting. At Dior, with a knit sweater and logo pants.
