Wearing multiple necklaces can be a great way to add some extra style and flair to your outfit. However, it can be tricky to get the right balance and combination of necklaces, and sometimes styling the wrong necklaces together can make your look too messy or annoyingly tangled. To get you feeling more confident about styling multiple necklaces, we will discuss some tips and tricks to help you layer your necklaces with comfort and style.
When wearing multiple necklaces, it’s important to consider the length of each necklace. You want to create a nicely layered look and choosing necklaces of varying lengths will avoid tangling or knotting while also offering a clean and cool look. Start with a choker or short necklace close to your neck and add progressively longer necklaces as you work your way down. A good rule of thumb is to have at least an inch of space between each necklace to create a balanced layering effect. To add another flair of elegance and style, wear with a women’s turtleneck sweater to really make your layered necklaces stand out.
Mixing and matching necklace styles can be a fun way to add some extra pop to your outfit. Try combining different materials such as gold, silver, or beads to create a truly unique look. While classic advice would say one should never mix different metals or materials, it can actually add a compelling dimension to your outfit. You can also mix different styles such as a delicate pendant with a chunky chain, or a dainty necklace with a bold statement piece. The key is to balance the different styles or materials so that they complement each other, rather than compete for attention.
Keeping it simple and minimal is always a good rule of thumb when layering and wearing multiple necklaces. While it’s fun to mix and match styles, it’s also important to keep the overall look simple and cohesive. Too many necklaces can overwhelm an outfit and make it look messy. Stick to a maximum of three necklaces and choose simple pieces that won’t compete with each other. If you’re wearing a statement necklace, pair it with simple or delicate pieces to create balance. Make sure your necklaces also work with your outfit. For example, if you’re wearing a floral print dress that really stands out, perhaps look to some simple dainty necklaces instead of anything too chunky or bold.
When wearing multiple necklaces, it’s also important to consider the neckline of your outfit. A low or scooping neckline is the perfect opportunity to showcase multiple necklaces, while a high neckline may cut off the full effect of the layering. For a higher neckline, such as a crew neck sweater, try a delicate choker or pendant that sits close to your neck. If you’re wearing a scoop or V-neckline, you can layer longer necklaces to create a cascading effect. As mentioned before, a turtleneck also really helps to accentuate the layered effect of multiple necklaces.
The color of your necklaces can make a big impact on your overall look. If you’re wearing a colorful outfit, consider choosing necklaces more neutral necklaces such as gold or silver to create balance and synergy. Alternatively, you can choose necklaces that match or complement the colors in your outfit. For example, if you’re wearing a blue dress, you can layer necklaces in different shades of blue or complementary colors. A great way to use multiple layers of necklaces to accentuate your outfit is to use color to pop an otherwise neutral look. For example, layering turquoise and coral beaded necklaces can really offer a colorful dimension to a classic black dress.
Experimenting with different textures of necklaces can add depth and interest to your outfit. Try combining smooth and shiny necklaces with rougher textured pieces, such as beaded or woven necklaces. You can also mix and match different materials, such as leather and metal, to create a unique look. Textured necklaces, especially beads, can really make an entire outfit come together and bring a more exotic dimension to your look.
As with anything, it’s always important to bring it back to considering your personal style. If you love wearing what’s more classic and elegant, such as pencil skirts and blouses, then perhaps avoid chunky beads or statement pieces and stick to layering dainty and delicate gold or silver chains with small pendants on them. If you have a more boho chic vibe about your personal style and find yourself wearing maxi dresses and oversized knits, then perhaps exploring beads and different metal textures or interesting trinkets works best for layering necklaces in your personal style.
When wearing multiple necklaces the most important points to keep in mind when layering is to give space for aesthetics and to avoid tangling, choose pieces that work with your personal style, and also to work with colors and textures that come together in synergy. Explore with what necklaces you have and find a way of layering them that fits comfortably, so you feel confident and stylish in your necklace layering.
