How to layer necklaces

The layered necklace trend is everywhere: from dainty layered chains to statement chokers and embellished pendants, the layered necklace look is the perfect way to show off your necklace collection and your effortless style in one go. As well as being a wonderful way to style your outfit details, this trend is easy to achieve, and even easier if you follow these simple steps.

  1. Varying chain lengths

The crucial element of a well layered set of necklaces is varying chain lengths. Staggering your chain lengths allows each individual necklace to shine, creating depth and texture to your outfit. Starting with your shortest chain, layer two or three necklaces, and adjust the spacing between them until you are satisfied with the overall look. Once you’ve tried spacing each necklace equally, adjust their lengths and see if you prefer your layered necklace look with varying spaces. There are really no wrong answers here – the layering look of your dreams is sure to be unique to you.

  1. Coloured metals

Do you love to mix and match your silvers with your golds, or are you a jewellery purist, who decides on a single look and commits to it? Follow whatever rules you have set for yourself, and layer your necklaces accordingly. If you’re unsure where to start, we suggest picking a single metal colour, and choosing necklaces that you feel will complement each other when they’re hanging out together around your neck.

  1. Different chain styles and weights

One way of jazzing up your layers of necklaces is to vary the weights and styles that you wear. Try out combinations of delicate and heavy chains, beaded necklaces and chokers, and see what looks the best.

  1. Play with pendants

Pendants, symbols and charms are a great way of showcasing your style, and a statement pendant is the ideal way to make your outfit stand out in a crowd. Choose pieces that reflect your style, and don’t be afraid to wear multiple charms that express your personality. Wearing a selection of gemstones, chains and pendants will create an artful design and will make even the most simple of outfits stand out.
