The first runways featuring 2016 wears have come and gone and the newest ones are right around the corner. But what better time to take advantage of runway trends than right at the turn of the new year?

A lot of the time, runway trends are hard to actually transition into real life, what with ridiculousness like Rick Owens and his human backpacks (or dick cutouts) and succulent hair pieces (which were gorgeous, but not very wearable). But sometimes, taking a small aspect of the clothing and accessories that walk the runways and streets during Fashion Week can lead to big payouts in the style department.

Here are a few jewelry and accessory trends from the runways that you should bring into your every day life.

Chunky Chain Accents


Chunky chains have been a part of a lot of runways in the past (both on accessories and jewelry) but design houses like Alexander Wang and Marni put them at the forefront of their accessory story on the runway. Go for a larger, heavy chain instead of the expected smaller chains on a clutch and find a modern alternative to those chains of the early 2000′s.

Senso Umbrai Heel (Revolve, $175)


Black Zipper Fur PU Chain Bag (Romwe, $25)


Knotty Links Collar (Baublebar, $42)


Choker Alternatives


While I’m not touting putting branded zipties around your neck, Christopher Kane has made a point. The choker has been used and abused more now than it was in the ’90s and I have a feeling it’s here to stay. Play up a more feminine style rather than the all black with a metallic band or colored fabric.

Milanna Alma Leather Choker (Nasty Gal, $48)


Regal Rose Valeska Tassel Choker Necklace (Asos, $31)


Hinged Cutout Choker (Forever 21, $14.90)
