Tips on layering Necklaces

July 12, 2015

Why wear just one necklace when you can have so much fun with layering! Not sure how to layer? Here are some tips on layering necklaces that may help.

Use Different Chain Lengths

Using necklaces of the same chain length make it difficult to differentiate the individual pieces. The details can get lost in the pile. Go for different chain lengths for a tiered look. This adds depth and allows each piece to be appreciated. Depending on the type of look you are attempting to achieve, you may use more short chains, long chains, or cover the entire range of short and long.

Minimal or Dramatic

There are two different approaches that you can take with layering necklaces,.. minimal or dramatic. For a minimalist look, use delicate chains of varying length and few (or even no) pendants. For a more dramatic look, use thick chains of different textures or an interesting combination of pendants. For even more drama, place pendants at different spots along the chain.

A Pop of Color

There are many different ways to use color. You can use primarily neutral colors with one dominant and colorful piece. Your accessories can also combine a wide range of colors, blended into a unique pallete. When leveraging color, think not only about pendant colors but also about chain colors.

Mix and Match

The combinations are endless when it comes to layering necklaces! Mix and match different pieces to create a unique look every time. Mix different shapes, metals, and textures. Pair new pieces with old ones or mix up different themes. Your combination can match your mood and express your sense of style!
