The Dog Tag Necklace is one of the most iconic and easily recognizable fashion accessories of all time.
Today, we are seeing a resurgence of this particular type of necklaces, once only associated with soldiers in battle. Now worn as a form of trendy yet daring fashion statement, dog tags are almost universally well-loved.
This does not mean that you cannot rock dog tags with your own personal style and swag, as these famous celebrities show you.
1. Hugh Jackman as "Wolverine"
If you watch the X-Men movies, you will notice that Hugh Jackman can be spotted with his
wolf dog tag. Do you know the story behind Wolverine's dog tag?
The tag was given to James Howlett a.k.a. Logan a.k.a. Wolverine just before his skeleton was bonded with adamantium. After his memory was erased, the dog tag was the only reminder of his previous life.
2. Kristen Stewart
The "Twilight" actress making a casual statement with some lovely dog tags. While the Dog Tag Necklace is no doubt a masculine symbol, females need not shy away from this piece of jewelry.
Interestingly, the design that Kristen Stewart is wearing in the photo above is the inspiration behind our very own Lupine Dog Tag Necklace, which is available in silver and black.
Keeping in tradition with the double-tag system soldiers used during wars, the necklace comes with two tag pendants.
3. Justin Bieber & Selena Gomez
Check out the "Never Say Never" and "Baby" singer rocking his silver oval-shape dog tags over his shirt.
And of course Bieber's perpetually on-and-off girlfriend Selena Gomez would have it too.
Notice that simple does it for their outfits, as fashion accessories like dog tags already inject a ton of personality to your entire look!
4. Chris Hemsworth
The heartthrob actor wears a dog tag for a very specific and special reason. You will never guess the meaning or purpose behind his necklace.
Chris Hemsworth, of "Thor" fame, actually wears this around his neck: his wife Elsa Pataky's phone number! Why? Well, because "in case of emergency", he says. Or maybe he just wants to keep Elsa close to the heart? (The next time you run out of Valentine's Day or anniversary gift ideas, you know what to do.. hint hint.)
BTW - Hemsworth's style is incredibly effective AND easy-to-follow for men: Dog tags over a simple plain white T-shirt, coupled with a blazer or super cool leather jacket.
5. Michelle Obama
The former First Lady of the United States doesn't have to be flashy all the time. Here she is making a subtle fashion statement - mini dog tags, shall we call it?
Yes indeed, dog tags can come in all sizes, shapes, and colors.
