How To Layer Necklaces & My Current Favorites

August 7, 2018

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.

Necklaces: Smith & Mara Initial Necklace (worn for 2 years straight) // Ania Haie Long Chain Roman Coin Necklace // Zodiac Stack (similar here for $60)


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. Below are a couple options I selected for you to curate your own gold necklace collection.
