Lori Harvey's chain belt is a lesson in elevating any outfit

Oct 25, 2023Oct 25, 2023

Chain belts for summer? Sign us the hell up.

From Lori's edgy workwear to her dreamy holiday fits, we're taking all the style cues from the model—especially after she showed us exactly how to rock a body chain. Here's why we think Lori Harvey's chain belt needs a spot in your capsule wardrobe...

While Lori's boyfriend sitch continues to dominate our thoughts (especially after her and Damson Idris' vacation snaps sent our FOMO into overdrive), the model's recent outfits are also garnering our attention.

Spring fashion-wise, we already know that denim mexi skirts are in, along with ballet flats and the whole 'Salted Granola' aesthetic, but Lori has just given us a glimpse into what accessories will dominate in summer 2023 and we have four words for you—chain belts are back. So, let's allow Lori to grace you with her fashion expertise on how to style this glam piece of body jewelry...

In case you missed it, Lori took to Instagram to share her latest fit—which she wore to the Chanel Cruise 23/24 show in LA.

Naturally, she was dressed head-to-toe in Chanel, opting for a mini dress in the classic Chanel monochromatic colorway, with a black cardigan, a myriad of stacked Chanel bracelets (very Y2K fashion) and of course, the chain belt.

Hanging from her waist, sat a pearl-beaded chain, with Chanel's iconic logo's hanging from its tail. It was a subtle addition but truly elevated the whole look and now we just need one, okay?

When it comes to the teeny, delicate belt, Lori proves a mini dress is the way to go, but we could also see this accessory working with a long sheer dress or over a bikini for a glam, beach look—think Hailey Bieber's swimwear aesthetic!

It's also the perfect way to add a bit of sparkle or interest to any otherwise simple fit, like a black strapless dress for instance, or a blazer and trousers combo. Just picture a gold or pearl chain trailing over the waistline of your pants, under an oversized blazer, *chef's kiss*.

So, now that we've established that chain belts are a certified lewk—where can we shop our own?

This chain from Amazon is also a great, budget option. It features a layered, chain link design and trailing detailing that can be adjusted.
