{ Trend Hungry Tuesday } Body Bling

Rihanna body jewelry

Today’s trend: body bling, aka body jewelry, aka if you follow Rihanna on Instagram then you know I’m talking about.

Rihanna rocked a whole lot of body bling and posted lots of pics to prove it, donning a bikini outfit including a body chain at the Crop Over Festival in Barbados.

 Speaking of body chains, or body necklaces (both names work), it’s a long necklace that drapes over the front and back of the body. They look sexy with a swimsuit or even under clothes, so give a peek-a-boo accessorizing, Beyoncé and Jennifer Aniston have both been seen sporting body chains.

Vanessa Hudgens, she’s even worn a thigh necklace in the past. Another style setter rocking unique body jewelry is Zoe Kravitz, who has been spotted wearing shin chains. Clearly there are lots of ways to wear bling on your body.

This trend is easier shopped online, as I learned a few weeks ago hunting for body bling for a TV segment. I found a some cool thigh chains and other body bling on Etsy, all handmade and unique.

{Trend Hungry Tuesday} Choker Necklaces


Another 90’s trend is back on the block. Choker necklaces, yeah they’re back. Rihanna has been wearing them a lot lately, including last night at the 2014 British Fashion Awards. She rocked a silver-sparkler choker paired with a Stella McCartney tuxedo blazer and not much else. Riri in Stella is always captivating.

Back to chokers, this trend has actually been around for a while. Google history of choker necklaces and there are images from centuries ago.
