Every season, a new outfit accent fills up our Instagram feeds. Recently, there was the chunky gold hoop rush and the beaded bag boom. We've since moved on to barrettes and sunglasses chains. The latter happens to serve a very important purpose: They keep your sunnies from getting lost and offer a chic alternative to tucking them into the neckline of your top. In other words, they are Croakies made to look like cool necklaces. 

And just like necklaces, the eyewear retainers come in a variety of styles, from gold chains to baroque pearls. For those looking to recall their summer camp days, Roxanne Assoulin makes a bright beaded rainbow version that's reminiscent of a friendship bracelet. For those wanting to make a pretty bold statement with their shades, Banana Legion and Baublebar offer a wide assortment of extra thick chains in neon hues. And then for the fancy bunch, U.K.-based Frame Chain makes the most glam '70s-inspired styles. Shop them all in the gallery below.
