The Secrets to Necklace Layering
When it comes to layering jewelry, the most exciting part is showing off your creativity. There are no rules to making your own personal statement. However, with an endless amount of combinations that can be created, it can be a little overwhelming figuring out where to start. Here are some style secrets to follow and be inspired by when designing your own signature look. The goal is to have fun with the jewelry and to let it help you express your personality!
An important part of layering is to pile on the pieces, but you also want to avoid looking weighed down. For this look, you want to start off with a simple chain and gradually add on pendants and increase length. Each piece should be displayed naturally, so keep a good amount of space between each layer to avoid accidentally covering up a necklace. Pendants like the Lovely Heart Necklace and Crystal Safari Pendant, work well as central pieces to build your look around. A long chain like the Natural Shell Station Necklace works as a surrounding finishing touch bringing the whole look together.
Bright layers of color will add an element of interest to an outfit. Try finding pieces that are in the same color family to create a subtle monochromatic ombre look. Don't be afraid to mix different shapes and textures if you're working within the same color family. The tear-drop shapes of the Thea Station Necklace paired with the tassel of the Noho Tassel Necklace still creates a uniformed look that's focused on shades of turquoise. You can even take this style up a notch by creating a look combining complementary or contrasting colors- the options are endless!
Short + Long
Start with a short minimalistic piece like a classic small crystal pendant or a delicate gold chain. Balance this look out by pairing it with a much longer chain that features similar shapes, like the Hammered Charm Station Necklace. The key to this look is to pair necklaces of the same color to keep the style cohesive and effortless.
Gold may be a classic go-to, but layering silver or gunmetal can feel much more unique. A long textured chain like the Zoe Knot Necklace already has a multi-layered style that adds a cool and edgy vibe to any outfit. Matching this look with the shining contrast of the crystal covered NY Electric Pendant highlights this eye-catching original combination.
Add instant glam to a casual look with this mixture of sparkle and shine. Steal the show by wearing your favorite chunky crystal encrusted pendant as a focal point. Draw even more attention to it by pairing it with a slim long chain that spotlights similar crystal detailing like the Priscilla Station Necklace. Shine on and let your creativity be the center of attention!
