Tips on Dressing Up Your Gold Chains
Every true baller knows how important it is to keep your gold chain game on fleek. But, if you feel you’re rocking the same pieces over and over, it’s probably time for a change. Even if your gold chain collection is on the smaller side right now, there are dozens of ways to take your look from Soundcloud rapper to Snoop Dogg.
Dope urban style is often defined by the amount of bling hanging from around your neck, so adding an iced-out chain to your collection will always get you some extra attention whenever you hit the streets. Here are some other simple tips to get you wearing your chains in a new way every day.
Add a Flashy Pendant
An easy way to add an extra flair to your everyday gold chains is by getting a couple of different bomb-ass, flashy pendants. This is the best way to re-wear your favorite necklace without anyone noticing that it’s the same chain.
Of course, you’ll probably want to invest in a few different gold chains to avoid wear and tear and to mix up the styles, but when you switch out your pendants, the options are limitless. Depending on the type of look you’re going for, you can rock a classic Jesus piece or cross for a more serious look. Blinged-out emojis pendants are a cool way to spice up your accessories and add a fun touch to your dope chains. Emoji pendants are available in “face with sunglasses,” “tongue out face,” “winking emoji,” “crying/laughing face” and, of course, “the poop emoji.”
Opt for an Iced-Out Piece
The most obvious way to step up your gold chain game is by investing in an iced-out piece because it’s super eye-catching and lets everybody know what a boss you are. Iced-out pieces are highly desirable because they send the message that you’re successful and can afford to add diamonds to every piece of your accessories.
If you find completely iced-out chains to be a bit too flashy for the occasion, you can easily add bling to your chains in a more subtle way. Opt for a pendant with some diamonds sparingly encrusted into the gold or match a traditional pendant without gems to an iced-out chain.
Layer Your Dopest Chains
Layering is a key method for showing off several of your chains at once. Even if you only have a few chains, there are plenty of ways to mix and match your necklaces to keep you looking fresh to death every time you step out of the house. If you’re going to try a layered look, keep it simple and limit yourself to three or four chains of varying sizes. We try to avoid wearing two necklaces of the same length because they can cover each other up, making it difficult to notice the absolute dopeness of each design.
It’s also a good idea to switch up the thickness of each chain—one thick Cuban link mixed with two thinner styles. This keeps your look interesting and shows off your favorite chains. You can add a pendant if you like, but we suggest sticking to just one, or maybe two, pendants at one time.
Coordinate Your Chain with Other Accessories
Rocking multiple types of hip hop jewelry is going to take your outfit to the next level. Even if you tend to wear the same few chains on rotation, you can add a blinged-out bracelet or a few rings with big gems to switch it up and draw attention to some of your other accessories. A matching bracelet and necklace combo is a sleek, put-together look.
If you’re feeling like a real baller, you can find a diamond Rolex that matches the chains already in your collection. This will help bring out the gold in your necklace and add a bit of ice to your wrist, drawing people’s attention to your Rolex, a highly desired type of watch.
Flex on Everybody with These Gold Chain Looks
Keeping your accessories and wardrobe looking fresh is important to a baller with a sick style like you, which is why it’s always a good idea to switch up your gold chains. Purchase new pendants or layer your chains for a more attention-grabbing look or just go straight for an iced-out gold chain.
