Chains are definitely up and coming now. Even not as revealing a back you can wear plain colour and bland cuts with accessories made of chains on top - and I don't mean just necklace.
The fact that elaborate chain accessories are difficult to get – make your own! Crafts or DIY shops do cheap gold/silver plated necklaces and you can chain them up to make a chain dress, chain top or something. Pic from http://streetstylelondon.blogspot.com/
Chain paper rings together, pivot the rest of your dress on a ring-made necklace round the collar, and build vertical stripes from them to make fringes - consolidate the frindges by connecting them horizontally.Build them from necklaces and it saves you time from chaining them up one by one...
See what I mean, a chain dress.
