Layering Necklaces 101

Chunky, delicate, studded, sleek - when it comes to necklaces, the possibilities are endless. Recently, layering necklaces to create a unique look has become a popular trend.

If you've never done it before, it may seem a little intimidating. But don't worry, everyone is capable of creating a layered style. To help you get started, check out these 6 tips.

1. Lots of lengths
If you're going to wear multiple necklaces, make sure they differ in length. For example, pairing a long pendant with a short, delicate chain will create a flawlessly balanced look.

2. Works like a charm
Consider throwing a beaded or charm-adorned necklace in the mix. If you want to keep it simple, stick to a similar shape throughout or create a blend of beaded styles.

3. Colorful collaboration
Want to add a pop of color to your ensemble? Layer some vibrantly hued necklaces or go softer with a monochromatic look.

4. Chain reaction
For a sleeker look, consider a variety of link and chain styles. Layering multiple metals and materials can create more visual interest.

5. Clothes call
Your top or dress will play a large role when determining which necklaces to layer. High or deep necklines are easiest for layering, but other necklines can also work depending on necklace length.

6. Go for it
If you're hoping to layer a heavy necklace, go for it! A few bold necklaces can create a stunning statement piece.

Overall, don't forget to have fun. Layering necklaces is all about experimentation and figuring out which combinations work well together. Go dainty, daring, or dramatic, but most of all, stay true to your personal sense of style.
