There’s a wonderful freedom in accessorizing with jewelry right now and, as Pinterest and Instagram show us, anything goes. From stackable bracelets creating jangling “arm parties” to wearing rings on every finger to layering multiple necklaces, street style trends certainly point to more, more, more.
The exciting part is that there aren’t any hard and fast rules to these looks. So go ahead and mix metals, experiment with texture, layer varied lengths, and pair statement necklaces with statement necklaces.
But, with so much style freedom, it can be difficult to get the look right. Here are a few tips and tricks to help master the layered necklace look.
Know Your Lengths
When shopping for necklaces that layer perfectly, it’s important to know what lengths your looking for. This great infographic from Who What Wear demonstrates the many lengths that you’ll find and where they fall on your body.
We’re big fans of graduated layering necklaces. To achieve this look, start with a short collar, add a versatile mid-length piece, and finish with a long and elegant necklace.
Or, cut out the mid-length piece and partner your shortest collar necklace with an extra long chain. Another great look pairs delicate shorter necklaces with slightly chunkier, longer necklaces.
Become a Minimalist
You can achieve a minimalist look by layering simple chains. Layering multiple small, dainty pieces creates a larger statement look.
Embrace the Lariat
Looking for a cool way to add length and texture to your layers? Look no further than the lariat necklace. The lariat is such a versatile and on trend way to add interest.
Mix Your Metals
Gone are the days when tradition dictated that gold had to be worn with gold and silver with silver. Today, you can mix gold with silver and even rose gold. If you’re mixing metals, do try and avoid pairing them with colored gemstones--stick with diamonds or neutral colored gems.
