Perfectly layered jewelry is like a perfect flat lay. While they both look effortless there is definitely some strategy to make them appear that way. Dainty jewels can complete your look. when done well. Let’s break down the technique.
Tips for layering your necklaces
- 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.
- Mix & match. Gold, silver, rose gold… play around with it. Mixed metals are in.
- 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.
- 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.
