One of my most asked questions lately is for the details on my layered necklaces. I love layering gold necklaces and I change them out often. Today I am sharing my most worn pieces below and 5 tips on how to layer the perfect necklace stack!
For me, a layered look completes any outfit, including jewelry! If there is one thing you can count on seeing in most of my looks, it’s gold necklaces.
My most worn pieces are the smith and mara initial necklace (similar here for under $50), my Ania Haie long chain Roman coins necklace, and my Zodiac necklace (similar here for $60). They’re a staple piece that can easily be layered. The beauty of them is the versatility they give you. I can wear them with every single outfit.
Here are five tips when it comes to layering your necklaces:
1 // Wear at least 3 necklaces at a time. Sometimes I do 2 but most times it’s 3 to really achieve that layered look.
2 // Mix up the length of your necklaces
Be sure you’ve got a good mix of clearly defined lengths, starting from the shortest of 14″ to the longest at 33″.
3 // Keep your metal unified – for a more cohesive look.
4 // Add length with a lariat – this necklace style plunges down the neckline creating length on the upper body.
5 // Personalize your layers with initial necklaces, zodiac signs etc.
When it comes to buying necklaces, I think it’s better to invest a little bit more money for a high-quality one because you can get so much wear out of them. (They don’t have to be super pricey, you can find good quality necklaces at around $50-$60 range). The problem I find with cheaper gold necklaces is that they start to fade or leave a green tint on your skin just after 2-3 wears. Right now the affordable ones I really are from Natalie B Jewelry.
