Layering necklaces is one of the hottest jewelry trends of the last decade. This trend has only swayed very little with the types of jewels or charms, and increasing in popularity.
But for the most part, necklace layering is an essential staple in any fashionista’s wardrobe. Many in-trend influencers boast an array of necklace types. From chokers, to playful charms, to sleek long pieces with stones. Whatever your personal statement, a layered necklace can always take your style to the next level.
The goal of layering necklaces is to create a statement. You aren’t just procuring the cutest pieces to wear them all at once. There is a purpose behind each layer, each one saying something new.
One of the first things you’ll want to keep in mind when purchasing new necklaces is look for simple pieces you like. If you have a ton of heavy statement pieces, layering those altogether can be messy.
You’ll want to stay focused on the necklaces that you’re drawn to, that also have a simplicity.
Let Time Guide You
You don’t want to rush and buy everything at once. Yes, you can go to stores like Madewell and Nordstroms were they have grouped together a few necklaces that look good. But the best option is to gather them yourself. You’ll want to tell your friends about each one and the story behind it.
You may even receive some as gifts! Those can be even more meaningful because when you wear it, you can tell people the story.
A good layered necklace will always have a good story.
Be Playful, Mix And Match!
Next, you’ll want to mix and match. Once you’ve gotten your core groups of necklaces, it’s ok to throw a little color, or mix the metals, even try mixing the charms!
The best way to layer is when you’ve found a “necklace base” that can be built off of.
The necklace base is always a good place to start. If your outfit changes, you’ll add the necklace that works best. Let’s say you wake up with your necklace base on, yes, it’s OK to sleep in necklaces (you’re a fashionista)! But then you want to walk through the farmers market, throw your golden charm necklace on on top!
The golden pieces feel warm and bright, like the sun!
Then later in the day, you’re going on and wearing a low cut blouse. Make sure you’re drawing attention to your best features! Wearing a lower necklace to match the top can help accentuate good features!
