Shop The Must-Try Jewelry Trend Of Summer 2016

Popular for music festivals, accessorizing swimwear, and other bohemian, care-free looks, body chains are the perfect accessory for summer 2016. They may have become popular when Flash Tattoos started, but the dainty accessory is close to the definition of summer — effortless and fun. Some celebrities are bringing back the choker for the summer, but these long chains add glam to your entire outfit and swim pieces.

There's no doubt wearing body chains has a Greek goddess vibe to it, and pairing them with a beach and a pool backdrop will guarantee a stunning statement look for the summer. Not into flaunting a body chain with a bikini? Pair it over a one-piece and high-waisted shorts or over summer's other super popular trend — a leotard. Heck, it even looks amazing layered underneath a summer dress. A hint of jewelry popping out from underneath a flowy frock? Stunning.

But dont think you have to wear these longer chains only with your swimsuit and cut-offs. If you're really bold, you can wear one over a sleek pant suit like Jennifer Aniston did at the 2015 Critics' Choice Awards:
