Tips for the perfect layered look
Mixing and matching necklaces is a simple way to create a fresh look with items you already own. Layered necklaces can create looks that range from casual to elegant, airy to bold. Interested in the layering trend? Here are a few tips to help you get started.
Pick an Array of Lengths: The most important thing to keep in mind when layering necklaces is length. If necklace lengths are too similar, they may blend into each other instead of creating distinct layers.
Keep Your Outfit in Mind: High neck, v-neck, scoop neck – whatever you wear, keep your neckline and pattern in mind. Make sure the necklaces lay right and your layered look doesn’t compete with a busy pattern.
Combine Colors: Layer a variety of brightly colored necklaces, or go for a monochromatic look.
Consider Chains: Mixing metals and chain types can add an extra layer of detail to your ensemble. Bold, chunky chains also create an edgy look.
Charms & Beads: Blending dainty charms and beads into one look creates an eye-catching aesthetic. It’s also a lovely way to express your personal style or even interests.
Dare to Go Bold: If you’re interested in trying a heavy, chunky style, go ahead! A few bold necklaces can make one fabulous statement piece.
Now that you've got the basics covered - ready, set, layer!
