CHAIN CHAIN CHAAAAAIN...
90's babies might remember eyewear chains as something their practical dad wore back in the day. But for anyone who has no idea what we're talking about, eyewear chains are basically cord or chain accessories that fasten at the ends of your glasses (could be sunnies or prescription glasses). This makes it possible for you to wear them around your neck and have your glasses rest easy on your chest whenever you take them off without losing them.
Perhaps this sounds like a small deal, but eyewear chains are super functional as they guarantee your glasses never go on an adventure on their own (aka get lost). Plus, they add some serious style to your everyday glasses, which is a major reason why they come in handy and everyone needs a pair or several.
In the early days, eyewear chains were made with leather straps or a flexi plastic cord. But these days they've been reworked with beads, marble, pearls, acrylic and chains. They also come in all sorts of styles, that give them the power to amp up any look.
Whether you're a sucker for accessories or you're done losing your specs and need a little help, we've rounded up some stunning eyewear chains to amp up your style. You can never have too many eyewear chains and the best part is you can mix and match according to your mood and vibe for the day. So hop on ahead to get some eyewear chain inspo.
