Body harness jewelry
The fashion world has found another unique way to make a statement, this time with body harness jewelry. The jewels of 2016 don’t just decorate your ears, fingers and wrists but delve into the realm of ankle and torso coverage.
A great way to experiment with your personal style is to join the body chain fashion tribe. Once the style of the island hopping celebrity set posing languidly on their Yachts, this trend has become popular with designers and high street brands this summer of 2016. An unconventional form of a chain, a body harness goes beyond the neck and clings itself to the body around the waist and towards the back.
As the Indian summer moves towards its peak, we are encouraged by the weather and fashion trends to opt for clothing that bares our shoulders, arms and torsos. Body jewelry provides the perfect compliment to these easy, breezy fashion trends.
Though a body chain may be referred to as the new-age jewelry, it is anything but that. Fashionistas attribute the style to two influences — India and the Middle East. In India, the style is believed to have originated from classical dancers, who supposedly wore chain-like trinkets around the waist. As for the Arabic influence, the style takes its influence from the belly chain that the belly dancers wore during their performances. However, the modern day body chain resembles jewelries originating from Britain, when it was under the Roman rule.
Many tribal cultures also use body harness jewelry as a way to adorn themselves, especially during rituals and celebrations. Amongst the celebrity set, Rhinana, Kendel Jenner and Beyonce have all been spotted wearing this style of jewelry. International fashion designers such as Valentino and Rodarte have also showcased it in their SS2016 collections.
Models sashayed down the runway at Alexander Mcqueen wearing industrial looking body harnesses, where as Calvin Klein showcased delicate gold body chains. There is no need to restrict this trend strictly to the beach, as it works in versatile ways with many summer outfits. Given bellow are six ways to wear the body harness trend.
