Sometime in the '90s, connecting your wallet to your belt loop by a chain was an acceptable fashion choice. Over time, teens and tweens ditched the wallet and just connected silver and gold necklaces to belt loops to accessorize. The metal links would sway along your jeans as you walked around the mall. Unaided, Victoria Beckham has ushered the trend back into the forefront, with a glamorous spin at the 2014 British Fashion Awards. How long until the chain belt appears in Zara? Roughly ten minutes.
