Consider it the Versace effect: retro-look chunky gold chains are back with a vengeance. So too chain mail after the brand’s epic Spring/Summer 2018 runway show starring original ‘Supers’ Cindy Crawford, Naomi Campbell, Claudia Schiffer, Helena Christensen and Carla Bruni, all draped in a metallic mesh.

While most think of yellow gold-on-gold decor when they remember Gianni Versace’s signature metallic accents, the modern way to join the chain gang needs a touch of white gold or silver and high-shine leather to keep things balanced. One of the easiest ways to up-fashion your look right now is also one of the most flattering.

Little wonder NET-A-PORTER reportedly quadrupled its Versace order straight after Donatella’s supermodel-studded show.
