5 Ways to Wear a Cuban Link Chain
Posted on January 27 2017
When you’re talking chains and streetwear in the urban scene, the Cuban Link Chain is number one. This style of accessory has been around since early hip hop days. Originally this was known as the Miami Cuban Link Chain due to its popularity and origins in the city. We now see it as an essential piece worn by many artists and fans of the hip hop/streetwear community. Without further ado, lets kick off the list.The Proper Look
None other than New York’s Jay Z could be in a full suit and bow tie and still rock a Cuban Link Chain. Taking this look from elegant award show and adding a statement of “I’m still Hip Hop” to it. We see how he blends his street roots into a luxurious outfit and still keeps it looking proper.
The BOSS, yeah it’s Rick Ross and by now you’re pretty used to seeing him without a shirt. But imagine this, it’s summer time, you’re in Vegas at a pool party and you want to make that exact statement, “F*ck With Me.” If you can back up this confident look with some of your own, you’ll be in the center with people watching saying, “Damn, that’s fresh!”
The Lady Street Look
The rude boy singer, and rude queen herself Rihanna. Making the Cuban Link Chain look as sexy as can be, we see it in a choker style. Keeping her elegance and maintaining a proper look who better to add an urban touch to an outfit other than Rihanna?
The Basic "Can’t Go Wrong" Look
The beauty of Cuban Link Chains is that they can literally almost go with any outfit and add that touch of elegance and luxury to it. Nice shirt, Jacket, or just a shirt, the Cuban link chain is an essential piece of any outfit to help it sparkle. Nelly and Fat Joe (a Miami titan himself) have the look locked down. Keeping it minimal, urban, and fresh, these two definitely did it right.
The “Alright, Kanye did it but can I really pull this off?” Look
Ok, so this one is more of an I think only Kanye can pull it off look. I mean lets look past the mint and denim for a second. He has his own style and that’s known, but even with an outfit this far fetched, the Cuban Link Chain still looks pretty damn good. It’s so versatile that we see it blending in to any style of fashion, even the “Kanye-er” ones.
