Chains are back and they are better than ever! Well, that is, where handbags are concerned anyway. To be honest, I have always had a soft spot for bags with a chain strap. But what’s hot right now are chain details located elsewhere on a bag, not just as a strap. And when it comes to chains on handbags, I personally prefer something that isn’t too dainty. But I don’t want anything too heavy either. Why so picky? It’s simple! I don’t want to feel like I’m going to break it! However, I also don’t want a chain that is so big and heavy that it feels like I’m carrying around shackles! Yep, I’m a medium-sized chain gal all the way. But what I think is so neat about the so-called chain “trend” is that it can involve any kind of chain, big or small. So there is literally something out there for everyone. So without further ado… I present to you our top picks for chain-detailed handbags!
1. Marc Jacobs Stardust Cecillia Studded Satchel
Chain details that have nothing to do with a handbag’s strap may be hot, but no one can argue the feeling a chunky chain strap can give you. The Cecillia is such a gorgeous bag, with its studs and quilted leather. Heck, the chain strap is just icing on the cake!
Currently available here at Nordstrom!
2. Chloe Kira Chain Satchel
Wow, a chain border accenting an otherwise simple satchel. Who would have thunk it? This handbag is perfect for a person wishing for a neutral style with just a hint of uniqueness.
