This Accessory Will Make Every Outfit You Wear Feel More 2020

After years of forgoing statement necklaces in favour of delicate, layered pendants, the catwalks have spoken: Heavy-duty neck candy is very much back on the sartorial agenda for 2020, with one particular necklace style leading the It accessory charge.

Tracing all the way back to the '80s, chain necklaces have enjoyed peaks in popularity over the best part of four decades. And now, thanks to the likes of Chloé and Bottega Veneta, it's once again proving in-demand.

But don't take our word for it. Instead, let Net-a-Porter convince you. During the brand's 2020 trend presentation for fashion press, Net-a-Porter revealed it has invested in over 840 units of chain necklaces for spring/summer 2020. That said, you needn't have a designer budget to be able to channel the trend—the high-street has an abundance of chain-link necklaces to choose from, too.

With the power to breathe a new lease of life into roll-necks and T-shirts, and bestow more fanciful items with a cool edge, invest in a chain necklace this side of 2020 and we guarantee it'll serve you well for the next 12 months and beyond.
