Seeing Double: How To Layer Necklaces

comments

jewelryWebWhen it comes to shopping for clothes, I stick to simple silhouettes. Classic shift dresses, a great blazer, skinny jeans — tried and true pieces that I’ll wear for years. Of course I’ll experiment here and there with a fun trend or two, but for the most part, I like to let my accessories and jewelry do the talking.

Lately, I’ve been really into layering statement necklaces by mixing and matching two or three at a time. With this look, I took a rather simple outfit (white dress, military jacket) and added two of my favorite necklaces to bring it to life.

In this case, I mixed two similar necklaces so that it could almost look like one big piece, but I also like to mix up the textures and lengths. Don’t be afraid to mix metals, pair chains with crystals, or wear a long, dangling chain with a collar. Layering necklaces is all about having fun, which is kind of the point, right?
