The Sexiest Body Chain Jewelry to Shop for V-Day
Just in time for February 14, body jewelry options are endless, especially when layered over a flirty lingerie set or negligee. Celebs like Kendall and Kylie Jenner, Ashley Graham, Gigi Hadid, Shay Mitchell and Vanessa Hudgens have all embraced the look at festivals, on the red carpet and on vacation, but don't get caught styling yours the wrong way.
Lili Claspe founder Stephie Tchamanian is here to tell you what's in and what's out, when it comes to chains. "Whether you can see it or not, everyone's wearing a bra chain nowadays underneath their tops. Body jewelry isn't just for the beach anymore," she says. "The draped one size only body chains are definitely out. Woman want fitted chains that hug their every curve."
Here are a few of our favorite styles to shop:
Artemis Body Chain in Turquoise
The Sparkler Body Chain
Aside from body chains, there are many other ways to accessorize with the delicate jewelry trend, according to Tchamanian. "More great layering pieces would be anklets, hand chains, chokers and belly chains," she says. "Most of our customers are buying the matching anklet or belly chain to their body chains and styling them together."

Graceful Delicacy Gold Hand Chain
Zella Belly Chain
Admiralty 2-pc Bracelet Set
Anything might go when it comes to body jewelry at the beach — like Tchamanian's favorite: a one-piece bathing suit with a bra chain worn underneath and a belly chain worn on the outside — but you can also incorporate it into your daytime ensemble. "I love a delicate gold body chain that disappears underneath a tank top with a pair of skinnies and sneakers," she says. And when it comes to layering, more is more is more. "I wear 3-4 necklaces every day. I wear moonstones or diamonds to make it easier to pile on different pieces since they have a neutral pallet."
Another rule of body chain dressing? Don't be afraid to mix metals, advises Tianna Bastien, founder of Bstrd Body Jewelry. "You can also layer outside for a more obvious look, or pair with scarves," she adds. "Also make sure you are hanging at different levels, so the chains drape nicely and do not look tangled and messy."

You can also go the all-out route, when your entire bra is an amazing hand-cut chain:
Happy V-Day, indeed.
