Layering necklaces are a gorgeous jewelry trend for Fall 2015, whether you’re combining your dainty gold chains or draped in long bohemian statement necklaces. Not sure how to make it work for you? Check out our top 3 tips on how to wear layering necklaces.
1. Keep it simple for an everyday look.
My current favorite layered necklace combo is simple, yet fun: I like to pair our Fiercely Loved dainty bullet shell necklace and our Fishers of Men vintage charm necklace. They’re quiet, dainty necklaces on their own, but they make a huge statement together. The marsala jade & rustic bullet shell in the bar necklace fall nicely with the vintage fishing lure, vintage chain, & gorgeous green tourmalated quartz in the charm necklace.
2. Go all out for a special occasion!
Let’s be honest, sometimes MORE is more. I am crazy for the bohemian look, whether it's for a wedding or dinner with the girls. In our bridal inspiration shoot, we paired our Ask, Seek, Knock necklace with our Moon and Stars vintage charm necklace. It turned out to be a gorgeous boho chic look. The long bohemian necklace with the chandelier crystal & skeleton key pairs so nicely with the vintage moon charm and rich marsala jade bead. Just be sure to choose the colors of your gemstone jewelry wisely – stay in one color scheme or you could end up looking like you’re wearing a costume!
3. Play around with different lengths and necklines.
When you’re layering your own necklaces, don’t be afraid to experiment! See how the dainty necklaces combine for a great v-shaped, face-framing look? The neckline works perfectly with a simple chambray shirt. And the skeleton key pendant falls right at our model’s waistline, where her vintage dress also has some lovely detail.
BONUS TIP: Use safety pins to make your necklaces the perfect length for layering! Use a small one through your chain to shorten a piece, and a large one to lengthen.
