How to Layer Statement Necklaces

By now you’ve probably jumped on the layered necklace bandwagon.  Dainty necklaces – paired at different lengths – are always a win; but have you ever considered layering your statement-makers (the big over-sized statement necklaces you normally rock one at a time)?  Well, I’m here to tell you statement necklace moderation is overrated.  They are meant to make a statement, after all.  And what’s fashion if not for taking risks?  Especially of the sparkly variety.

A few tips for Layering Statement Necklaces:

  1. Even-sized beads and stones or chain-link help balance out chunky and mis-matched stones.
  2. A V-shape statement necklace is perfectly suited with a small coin or monogram necklace.
  3. Don’t be afraid to mix metals; silver, gold, copper, and rose gold … the more, the merrier.
  4. Pair edgier necklaces, like those with spikes, with a more feminine piece for some added contrast.
  5. Chains go with everything.

    Love this bold look! Not sure it’s appropriate for my workplace, but I’d love to style it for a girls’ night out.

      It’s definitely perfect for a girls night out, though I think you could definitely pull of a daintier monogram pendant with a statement necklace for work. 😉

  3. Omg I love this idea I must do this!
