NECKLACE LAYERING 101
Remember the days of wearing oversized, funky, fun statement necklaces?! [Ahem, the bubble necklace!] Those were how you really amped up an outfit or made even the simplest outfits more chic. Things have changed tremendously for me because I wear simple, dainty necklaces almost daily now. Some days I add a few necklaces and create layers, while others I opt for one simple necklace.
Layered necklaces creates such an effortless, easy look. However, it isn’t an easy task selecting the right necklaces to layer! In fact, it takes quite a bit of effort! On top of that, it isn’t exactly cheap to buy 3-4 necklaces & try to make them work together perfectly. Today I thought I’d share a few tips for layering + a few options for doing it more affordably.
TIPS FOR LAYERING
-Add in a personalized necklaces (I like this one, this one, & this one!)
-Buy an already layered necklace then add in your own personalized necklace. (I love this one!)
-Mix & match shapes & stones. It doesn’t have to be matchy-matchy.
-Try to make sure metals look similar – sometimes certain gold ones will be too shiny or too bright & look odd mixed in.
-Order adjustable length/extenders so that you have control over layering. For example, if you have a personalized necklace that you really love and want to mix it in with other necklaces – make sure it has an adjustable clasp option so you can make it 14” or even 18”.
As a new mom, I like wearing one of mine that say ‘Luke’ daily. I always coordinate my others around my Luke necklaces.
Right now there are TONS of options for affordable already layered necklaces – this will make it super easy. Wear those alone or add in your favorite personalized one and you are done. The key is to making sure there’s a layer for each – you don’t want two sitting on top of each other.
Personally I love a casual, oversized sweater or a lace trimmed cami paired with a few necklaces. It has such an easy, cool look!
