How to Layer Necklaces

Many of you have asked where to get the necklaces I’m wearing above. What you may not know is that I could be wearing more than one necklace at any given moment. And in this case, I am! I’ve always been a fan of layering. It only takes a few simple layers to transform one piece into several outfits. How cool is that? Layering gives you the power to “rock what you got” and make the most of your wardrobe (I’m a fan of this). Take your layering to the next level with jewelry! It’s easier than you think….

1. LONG LAYERS: Long layered necklace + Long pendant 
I’m especially into layering long necklaces at the moment. I start with a simple multi-strand necklace, one that is long enough to wrap around multiple times. There are so many great options at Nordstrom and Ann Taylor right now, by the way. This beginning piece will give you a clean slate and just the right amount of background detail for your second long statement piece. 
Next, I either pair a long pendant necklace like this chic piece from Ann Taylor or a shorter pendant like this lovely necklace from Bauble Bar.
2. SPIKE STATEMENT: Flower necklace (similar option here) + spike necklace (mine is old, this one is identical!). 
To create a version of this fun bib statement necklace, look for pieces that dangle. I like to start with spikes, they are a great option and really easy to find in stores/online. Whether you choose gold or silver is up to you, just make sure you pick something solid– nothing too busy. Next, add a busy, more clustered statement necklace. I love the floral trend we’re seeing in statement necklaces right now. This is my favorite option at the moment. I love the length this combination adds to the average statement necklace.
3. TRIANGLE PENDANT: Triangle necklace + Similar statement necklace here & here.
This combination of layering adds an amazing dimension to your necklace. Start by looking for collar pieces with flat detailing, like this one. Next, add a short pendant to the mix. This one should do the trick. Voila! You have a completely different necklace for free! Hollaaaaaaa!
I’m sure you’ll have compliments on your “new necklace”, so be sure to share the wealth with your friends! Are you a master of layering? How do you create your look? Tell me more!
