Tips for layering your necklaces
  1. Length matters. Choose different lengths so each necklace can shine. Check out this handy necklace guide to see common lengths so you can plan placement.
  2. Mix & match. Gold, silver, rose gold… play around with it. Mixed metals are in.
  3. Add a personal touch. Find a piece that represents something special to you. Recently I’ve been rocking the MARY nameplate in honor of The Nanz or a Gemini necklace.
  4. Stick to odd numbers. While you can pair 2, 4 or even 6 necklaces together there’s something about odd numbers that just seems complete. You’ll typically find me with 3 necklaces at once.
Don’t forget your ears & lips

Ears: if you have multiple holes, experiment and play around a bit. Recently I got my conch pierced ( the inside of your ear ) and it’s been an unexpected and necessary accessory when getting ready. If you’re looking for a bold look I’m loving LARGE & THIN hoops surrounded by lots of mini studs & mini hoops.

Lips: instead of going for a bold red lip tonight, switch it up and try a lip ring. These faux versions are playful and edgy. I rocked the silver in medium on Snapchat & think next time I’m going to do a trio of gold, silver, gold.

    Hehe, I love the idea of replacing lipstick with a lipring for a night! I totally agree that odd numbers are the way to go when layering.

    Probably a silly question, but how do you keep your necklaces from getting tangled when you wear more than one? I’ve tried to do this several times, but so many tangles! I often buy a lot of hand made jewelry from etsy, so perhaps it’s that they’re on less expensive chains?

    Thanks for the tips! I’m just getting into the necklace layering trend (I’m super late, I know) so this was really helpful. And always great to have some inspirational looks to go off of, too!

    Nothing is more attractive than a stylish look. Yet, I have different style jewelry, but sometimes even I don’t understand how to style them so that they look classy and attractive. This post is quite helpful to learn these small but important things.

    Did you order the Ascend Necklace as is (16 in) or did you request a custom length! I love the length you have so just want to make sure I am ordering the correct one. Thanks!
