Layered jewelry looks great, and has the casual feel of having just been thrown together, but truth be told it takes a little work to pull it together stylishly.
Whether you are wearing several dainty pieces or a few bold statement pieces, it's the perfect way to put all your favorite baubles on full display. Here are a few tips:
Less is more. We recommend not layering more than 5 necklaces, usually 2-3 looks great.
It's best to have necklaces that are different lengths and different weights. This also makes them less likely to tangle. If you have two necklaces that you think would look amazing together but are the same length, get an extender for one. Extenders are available in a variety of sizes and metals (buy a couple different lengths to have some flexibility).
If you are layering 3 necklaces the top and bottom necklace would make good focal points, where as the middle one can be a simple chain or understated.
You don't have to buy 3 new necklaces, start by looking through what you have and add to your collection with layering in mind.
For a short cut, look for necklaces that are already layered like the Double Priya by Jenny Bird. or See You by Sibilia.
There really are no hard rules, Just start with a piece you love and mix and match until you like the look.
Be your own canvas and make some art.
