Whether it was a dainty necklace or whole body outfit made of them, chains were a major trend of the night.

On Sunday February 4, the 66th annual Grammy Awards were held in Los Angeles.

Guests sported some amazing looks as well, so let’s dive into some of the trends spotted on the red carpet this year.

Boygenius members Phoebe Bridgers, Lucy Dacus and Julien Baker won 3 Grammys this year and sported custom white silk Thom Browne suits with pink carnations on their lapels.

The brand, started in 1999, influenced women’s streetwear in the early 2000’s.
