Want an easy way to switch up your look? Whether you’re running wedding errands like completing your wedding registry or planning your wedding day look, layered necklaces are one way to do it! I (Emma here!) love this look, but I — perhaps like you — wondered the proper way to layer necklaces. As in, uh, am I doing it right? If you’re wondering how to layer necklaces, you’re not alone; with every new emerging fashion trend, there’s a certain way to do it right. So, let’s explore this trend together, shall we? Read on to find out how to layer necklaces and get inspired with some handmade looks. And, once you’ve learned how to layer necklaces, you can enter for a chance to win a delicate layering necklace to add to your collection by Delicate and Layered (fitting, isn’t it?) Ooh, you don’t want to miss this one!
How to Layer Necklaces
1. Space ’em out
Allot approximately 1.5″ between each necklace for a clean, pulled-together look.
When you’re buying necklaces (or figuring out which necklaces you own to layer), use this as a guide:
2. Weights and Measures
If you’re wearing a heavier chain, keep in mind that the heavier necklaces will hang lower than the others. For instance, if you’re wearing a very short necklace with a longer one, keep in mind it will need enough weight to hold its own.
3. Order of Layers
When you’re layering necklaces of varying heights, the longest necklace is added first as the bottom layer. The shortest necklace, then, would be the last necklace you add so it lays at the top.
4. Mix + Match
According to Redbook, it’s okay to “break all the old fashion rules [such as wearing] silver with gold” and mixing delicate chains with chunky beads.
Delicate layering necklaces are the easiest way to achieve a perfectly layered look. Here are a few pieces we spotted (and oohed + aahed over) at Delicate and Layered.
