Choosing which pieces of jewelry to wear in the morning is a beautiful way to start your day. Like most jewelry or fashion loving people, you probably have an entire drawer or wall devoted to accessorizing. It’s pretty common to wear the same ring, necklace, and bangle day in and day out because life is always busy as it is, and reaching for your tried and true pieces just makes things so much easier.
But, you can get way more use out of your jewelry and make your outfit pop, if you know how to layer your pieces. Learn how to layer jewelry without overdoing it, and you will shine on any occasion.
- Layer by length
When you're layering necklaces, be sure to select different lengths. You want each piece to be displayed naturally. If all of your necklaces are the same length, they not only block each others' view, but they're more likely to get tangled.
- Wear heavy and dainty pieces at the same time.
Don't save that flashy necklace for a special occasion — go ahead and pair it with your simpler go-to pieces to make a statement all day, every day.
- Use multiple necklaces in the same metal to break up a solid-colored top.
Color blocking works in many ways. This is one of them.
- Don't choose between necklaces or bracelets — layer both.
The key is choosing the same layering style for your neck and arms: If you're going bold on your neck game, do the same on your arms.
- Don't be afraid to mix masculine and feminine pieces.
A chunky chain can make your more delicate accessories pop even more. Don`t be afraid to mix all kinds of pieces based on your style.
- Wear your bracelet with a watch
Layering jewelry is all about wearing your favorite pieces of jewelry at once. Wearing only a bracelet or a watch is no longer necessary. You can enjoy wearing your favorite bracelets along with the watch you`ve had for years.
From earrings to necklaces to rings, it’s possible to layer, or stack, any of your jewelry.
Whether you are brand new to the layered look or you stack jewelry like a seasoned pro, it’s important to stay true to your personality. Layering provides versatility, so bringing your authentic style helps ground the look in who you are.
Basically, your goal is to have fun with the jewelry and to let it help you express your personality.
