As the temperature is now dropping and the cold breeze is picking up, you must be thinking about how you can integrate your jewelry with your outfits during the winter season. Well, the answer is very simple. Layering! Whether it is a fabric or a necklace, with the help of layering you can add a touch of bling to your whole look without overdoing it.
Chains and necklaces are the most timeless pieces of jewelry. They help you to engage with your persona while keeping your overall look balanced and exquisite. One of the chic ways to wear necklaces and chains is to layer them and make a perfect stack. If you want to create a cohesive look then layered necklaces are the way to go. This will make your outfit seem effortless yet willful.
So if you are new to this game and are confused, we got you! We have several guiding principles below to get you started on the mixing and matching game.
1. Choose the optimal number of necklaces
There is not only one way of layering necklaces. It totally depends on what type of look you want. If you are looking for a simple and elegant look, you can for rose gold rope chains with a simple charm, jewel, or pendant. Else if you want an edgy look then you can go with asymmetrical or brilliant color charms. There are various types of options available. The main aim is to express your creativity.
2. Choose a focal point
It is advisable to choose a focal point that usually depends on the neckline of your shirt; it’s just like a frame for your neckpiece. A bold chain with a pendant will accomplish all the attention lower down. For example, High neckline shirts call for longer layers over your top. But having a deep neckline there is more canvas and you can just begin from the base of your neck by going with something minimal like a 14k gold Jesus pendant and adding as many layers as you wish. Ensure that your centerpiece must be a medium attention grabber and everything else around should subtly complement it.
3. Length is important
Necklaces of the same length can easily get tangled and look like an optical illusion. So when you are creating layers with necklaces make sure that each one has a distance of a couple of inches in their length. If you are planning to wear your big statement piece that has a dangling pendant in between the other two chains, ensure to have proper spacing between them so that it shines properly. It is advisable that you start with the smallest length and then you work your way up.
4. Don’t be afraid to mix different metals and materials
While layering, Instead of just using the same metal or a single color scheme, you can try experimenting by adding different metals that stand out from the rest. In this way, you can oomph your overall look and keep things interesting. Today, contrasting different metal colors makes a bold statement. You can do so by creating different new stacks by just simply changing one or two layers of your existing ones. Diversity is the spice of life, therefore live it with full enjoyment and mix different metals like rose, white, and yellow gold together with various color enamels.
5. Play with textures for that added quirk
Try something different with your layered necklaces and think out of the box. Throw in necklaces with gemstones like pearls, beads, diamonds, and emeralds for good vibes. Always try to keep your overall look in your mind while adding textures. Your neckpiece must complement the color and pattern of your ensemble. A white gold rope chain and a marine chain for instance will complement each other beautifully and are great to help you introduce new textures in the stack. So attaching pieces that vibrate with your style, will beautify the overall quirk of your fit.
6. Embrace the minimalistic staple pieces

The simple and elegant pieces will add glamour and beauty to your overall look without any overdoing. Such design pieces are important elements of your layered stack.
