Kaia Gerber is rocking every mall goth’s favorite trouser trend

In this post, we predicted that wallet chains would be everywhere at NYFW.

Not to say we told you so, but here’s arguably the most famous up-and-coming model in the world at the moment, Kaia Gerber, rocking the wallet chain.

This outfit is surprisingly simple and easy to recreate (just crop a black hoodie and find some low rise trousers which, by the way, have also made a comeback): but the pant chain makes this ensemble. They’re actually a really simple way to make any outfit more interesting and elevated, as shown above. They can make a boring outfit edgy, or make an edgy outfit even edgier. Juxtaposing them with more formal wear like these trousers is always a good look.

It’s hard to pinpoint exactly what initiated the return of this look. What we are realizing though is that these are low-key just wallet/key chains in disguise being robbed of their original function and appropriated to look way, way cooler. This fact is key, because it makes it way easier to find dupes:

Orseund Iris, $125.

Hot Topic, $8.72.

Amazon, $13.90. This is surprisingly cute. (Also free one-day shipping with Prime, it’s lit).

It’s pant chain szn, suit up.
