Let’s get one thing straight: eyeglass chains transcend generations. What once was considered an accessory reserved for grandparents is now a high-fashion staple. These linked strings aren’t only functional, but they can also be worn in a number of ways to elevate your everyday style. Whether you decide to dangle a chain off your eyeglasses, sunglasses, or face mask, most come with clasps that can be clipped on to anything — and can even be worn as a necklace (if you like it enough).
Eyewear chains are a great way to dress up a plain pair of sunglasses and give them a pop of style, no matter your personal taste. No, really: there are so many eyeglass chains on the market, you’re bound to find something that suits you. There are classic gold chains, chunky chains, pearl chains, designer chains, and options in every color of the rainbow. Plus, we can’t forget the functional aspect — they make glasses almost impossible to lose.
If you’re looking to take a pair of eyeglasses or sunnies up a notch, try one of our favorite fashionable chain attachments ahead. Toss your glasses around your neck when you’re in a shady area, and pop ’em back on when the sun’s too bright to handle. Once you get used to having a glasses chain, you’ll never want to go without one again.
