Layering Tip #1: Start with Your Shortest Necklace
It's best to start with the shortest necklace. This creates a foundation for the other necklaces, so you'll know what other lengths you'll need to create the perfect layered necklace look. Bonus Tip: If you're struggling to find the right balance, start with a two-strand necklace and layer in another necklace.
Layering Tip #2: The Right Number of Layers
The most conventional advice for layered necklaces is to wear no more than three strands or chains to achieve the most balanced look. But sometimes a pair two necklaces is more than enough. You could even go up to an assortment of five necklaces if you wanted. It all depends on what looks right on you and what matches your outfit.
Layering Tip #3: Evenly Space Your Necklaces
A perfectly spaced set of necklaces is the key to layering. We recommend at least 2" of space between each necklace, starting from the top necklace (which will be your shortest) down to the last (and longest) necklace. Having space between each necklace will enable each one to shine on their own while also preventing them from getting tangled together.
Layering Tip #4: Mix and Match Your Necklace Styles
The best part about layering necklaces is the ability to create a unique combination that reflects your personal style. Try a short choker necklace paired with a diamond pendant necklace and a longer Y necklace or swap out the pendant with an initial necklace or strand of pearls. Alternatively, you can pick a variety of chunky and delicate chain necklaces that will add depth and contrast to your outfit.
