Union has been killing it on the red carpet lately (especially alongside her husband, Dwyane Wade), and her latest look is certainly no exception. She paired her plunging black Akris gown, worn to the Straight Outta Compton premiere in L.A., with an equally-sexy silver pendant-like body chain.

For another high-fashion formal event (at least to the Kardashian-Jenner krew), Kourtney Kardashian opted for a sexy black jumpsuit with sheer cutouts to celebrate Kylie’s big birthday bash. And with a look that bold, an equally eye-catching accessory is only necessary. Enter: The star’s delicate gold body chain, which she wore over her onesie.

Rihanna, who may be the unofficial queen of body chains, showed how to dress down the accessory while out in N.Y.C. this week. Worn under a fitted crop top (and on top of those killer abs!), RiRi layers a few other delicate chains on top of the main one, proving athleisure can be sexy too!

Lastly, Christina Millian takes her statement chain to the beach! Seen here hitting the sand in a multi-color graphic string bikini, the singer teams her bold two-piece with an oversize gold body chain.

So yes, in case you were wondering, there’s a body chain style for just about everyone — and every occasion.
