When going for a golden chain, choosing a Cuban link is never a mistake. It offers style, authority, and durability. While modern fashion has fully recognized it in 2012 when the popularity of the piece surged up, it’s been around since the 70s.
The Cuban groups of Miami caught the trend first, thus the name. Later the unique Cuban link styling spread all over the US, from New York to Los Angeles.
Nowadays, it’s difficult to imagine a contemporary outfit without a Cuban link chain. Classic tuxedos, slip dresses, casual, hip-hop-inspired outfits, turtlenecks. Anything becomes more fashionable with such a chain.
Let’s dive deeper into the topic of Cuban link fashion and how to incorporate it into your outfits.
Although the first association with the chain is hip-hop legends style, it’s surprisingly versatile. Cuban link chains come in lengths up to 20-30 inches and widths from 0.1 to almost 1 inch.
The two most popular colors are yellow gold and white goldfollowed closely by rose gold, and we recommend you to get all three to maximize your styling options. Now, let’s learn how to style them best with the following set of guidelines:
Wearing your cuban link chain with T-Shirts and Tank Tops is a no brainer, you can coordinate them even further by matching your chain length to the piece of clothing you're planning on wearing.
For example, if you're wearing a t-shirt or tank top you may want to go with a cuban link choker which has a shorter length to allow your chain to sit closer to your neck and collar.
If you plan on wearing a Mock Neck or Sweater you may want to go with a cuban with a longer length to sit over your sweatshirt more comfortably. Wearing cubans chokers with cuban chains of a longer length allow you layer in a more organized fashion and are always a recommendation for styling with sweatshirts.
For Jackets and Winter Coats we recommend using a solid gold link of a longer length. For a classic more humble look, wear your pieces under your coat above your shirt to allow your chains to peak through the jackets opening to provide a shimmer of shine.
