Layering Necklaces: 5 Easy Tips

As Summer comes to a close, fall fashions are hitting the racks, and all eyes are on fashion and trends. That being said, we've come up with 5 easy tips to style layering necklaces as this trend is going strong and well into the next season.

Necklaces are no longer a 'choose just one' option. Layering them up allows you to create a personal style statement that we're all about! With these five easy tips, you’ll be well on your way to becoming a pendant pro in no time.

1. Pick A Centerpiece

We suggest you start with a main piece (preferably a bold pendant and longer chain length) as the foundation of your layered look. A pendant, though lovely when worn solo such as a piece like this or this, can be taken up a few notches when you add layers of chains. Mix and match pendants working with larger, smaller and even simple pendants are a great place to start.

2. Keep The Most Delicate Near Your Face

This one detail is as important as the first point, as delicate pieces can easily get lost down lower. Don't be afraid to mix and match beads/pearls or dainty pendants and charms with medallions (this is a hot trend now too) as this will create an eye catching combination! 

3. Choose Complementing Chains

While your necklace chains don’t need to match, you should try to stick to one theme for a cohesive look. For example, you can choose all gold chains but incorporate different styles and textures. The most important factor is having chains of varying lengths, so they will work together when layered rather than fighting for space. 

4. Keep It Simple

Mastering the layered look is easy when you stick to a few key pieces. You don’t want to layer too many chains or the beauty of your main pendant will get lost. You can go with as few as two (as pictured) or as many as four chains, depending on the length and complexity of each one. Make sure you don’t overpower the main centerpiece—the pendant.

5. Don't Be Afraid To Take Risks

Go ahead ladies, dig deep into your jewelry box and take some risks! Layering necklaces not only makes a bold style statement but if by chance you decide to add a long necklace to the mix, it will create a narrow line down the body giving you a body slimming effect...now who doesn't love that?!
