When we talk trends, we usually focus on what’s happening on the runways or out on the streets. From tie-dye to neon, these trends often prove tricky to pull off IRL. But Instagram has emerged as a source of inspo for trends that are much more doable for us common folk.

You’ll find linked chains in every modern-day form, from drop earrings to chokers. And whether you favor gold or silver, there’s a chain-link piece available.
