I love metal on clothes whether it’s a button, D ring or a chain which is why I love the armor jewelry (also known as harness jewelry) trend that’s going on right now. It gives you a fun edgy, look and depending on which style you prefer it can really change the look of any garment. Maybe it was started by the popularity of the book Fifty Shades of Grey, maybe not but who cares when it makes you look this good.
This gunmetal and copper urbaneARMOR chain body armor is a beautiful way to dress up a backless dress. ($130.00 on etsy)
Get the rock star look with this hand harness jewelry that starts off as a string of chains at your wrist and turns into a modern ring on your finger. (Armor Jewelry)
This black Art Deco lace covers the chest, wraps around the back and is held in place by antiqued brass chains. It’s truly an elegant piece and is perhaps the most wearable of the harness jewelry here. ($246 on etsy)
I love this shoulder armor jewelry with some skin peeking out but I can imagine that it will be just as striking over a fitted top. The geometric shape and the different lengths make it a fun accessory to wear. ($120.00 on etsy)
This piece of armor jewelry is inspired by Native American Indian vests and is a great way to add some embellishment to any simple garment. You can even wear it as a necklace making it a very cost friendly piece. ($229.00 etsy)
Not something that you see worn on the streets or at a party that often but a great look anyway. I love the medallion that falls over the forehead and the way the brass chains drape. ($54 Sofiyani LA)
As far as harness jewelry goes this gold chain maille is a very simple yet elegant piece. Since it closes at the nape of your neck and at your waist you won’t have to worry about wearing any additional jewlery. ($46.98 Kim Phoenix Design)
A quick and beautiful way to add a decorative touch to any backless outfit. I love the edgy full busted front and the simplicity of the back. (Armor Jewelry)
The hand and shoulder pieces are my favorites. Which one is yours?
