How to Layer Jewelry

Layering jewelry is a fun and creative way to accessorize your outfits. It adds depth, texture, and personality to your overall look. Layering can be done with any type of jewelry – from necklaces and bracelets to rings and earrings. Here are some tips and tricks to help you master the art of layering jewelry.

1. Mix and Match

The key to layering jewelry is to mix and match different styles and textures. Even mixing metals is “in” right now.  Don’t be afraid to combine chunky with delicate, a sparkle chain with a pendant necklace or vintage with modern. The contrast will add interest and dimension to your look.

2. Start with a Statement Piece

Start with a statement piece as the base of your layered look. This could be a bold necklace, an intricate cuff bracelet, or a pair of oversized earrings. Then build around it with smaller, more delicate pieces.

3. Vary the Lengths

When layering necklaces, vary the lengths to create a cascading effect. A choker or short necklace can be layered with a longer pendant necklace. Add a third necklace in a mid-length for even more dimension.

4. Play with Shapes

Mixing and matching different shapes of jewelry can add a fun twist to your layered look. For example, pair a geometric pendant necklace with a dainty charm necklace. Or stack a round bangle bracelet with a square cuff bracelet.

5. Stick to a Color Scheme

When layering jewelry, it’s important to stick to a cohesive color scheme. Choose metals that complement each other, such as all gold, gold and rose gold, or silver and white gold. This will keep your look polished and put-together.

6. Don’t Overdo It

While layering jewelry can be a fun way to add personality to your outfit, it’s important not to overdo it. Stick to three to four pieces at the most, to avoid looking cluttered.

7. Layer Different Types of Jewelry

Don’t limit yourself to just necklaces or bracelets. You can layer different types of jewelry for a unique look. For example, stack rings on different fingers or mix and match stud earrings.

8. Experiment with Textures

Experimenting with different textures can add interest to your layered look. Combine a beaded bracelet with a crystal leather wrap bracelet, or a delicate chain necklace with a colorful beaded necklace for Spring. 

Layering jewelry is a fun and creative way to express your personal style. Whether you’re going for a bold and edgy look or a delicate and feminine look, there’s no right or wrong way to layer jewelry. Just remember to mix and match, vary the lengths, and experiment with different textures and colors to create a unique and stylish look that is all your own. Lean in to your creativity!
