Necklaces, bracelets and rings just aren't cutting it anymore. Now the whole body is getting in on the jeweled fun! Body chains are on the rise as the latest trend popping up at the beach, in the streets and on the runway.

But don't be intimidated by this locked up look! Transform a sporty streetwear 'fit into a bold fashion choice by effortlessly accessorizing with body chains. Make a statement under the nightlights with studded body jewelry draped over a sultry dress. So, while necklaces are all good and well, it's time to take it to the next level. Be bold-what's there to hide anyway? Show off your sexy summer legs with a leg chain paired with high waist denim shorts. If you're not ready to take the body chain plunge, a little ring-to-wrist bracelet is a good beginner piece. Exude the 2013 Met Gala's 'Punk: Chaos to Couture' style with hardcore mixed-metal body jewelry. Dripping in jewelry never felt so good!
