Necklaces have been around for as long as jewelry has existed, even prehistoric people wove organic materials, like feathers or plants, around their necks to create rudimentary jewelry. Most cultures have a long tradition of necklaces, and a gold chain is one of the most popular iterations of a necklace.
The modern-day yellow gold Cuban chain link necklace has a hazy past, but it probably came to be sometime in the '70s or '80s, along with hip hop culture. It is an elegantly simple piece of jewelry that can easily accent many different looks. Take a look at these five different ways to wear your chain.
1. Back to the Basics
The great thing about a gold chain is that it can add flair to any old outfit. A good way to show off this accessory is to pair it with a basic t-shirt. A gold chain worn with a black T-shirt is sophisticated yet subtle. A chain can also pair with a stylish printed t-shirt. For a softer, yet equally fashionable choice, wear your chain with a simple white T-shirt and dark jeans. Adding sunglasses and a trendy jacket will take this look to the next level.
2. Dressed Up
Cuban gold chains are not just for casual wear. You can wear a chain with formal wear to stand out from the crowd. Consider wearing a chain with a dark turtleneck and a blazer to get a look that would be equally appropriate for a walk down the red carpet or a date night. You can layer multiple chains for added bling. A gold chain paired with a snappy navy blue or grey suit can be an eye-catching fashion statement. You can even wear a black suit and swap a tie for an open collar and a Cuban gold chain.
3. The Beach
The awesome thing about the yellow gold of a Cuban chain link necklace is that it looks great against your skin. You don't need many clothes to show it off; you can wear a chain to the beach with just a pair of swimming trunks. A gold chain and a bare chest is a great combination that is as classic and simple as a gold chain itself.
4. Bundled Up
A gold chain is a great accessory with a good sweater. The smooth links are a great contrast with a soft cardigan. Your Cuban gold chain can set off a patterned sweatshirt to perfection and give your look that personalized and put together edge, making sure that you look fashionable even wrapped up against the cold.
