Nothing screams style like a chest dripping in jewellery. Here are my top tips on how to layer your necklaces like an expert. The two main things you need to remember— different sizes and heaps of them! Cascading necklaces are a one way ticket to perfecting your kit and boosting your outfits from casual to totally chic! This trend is super effortless and if you were lucky enough to go to a Catholic school like me, you would’ve received a Mother Mary necklace at your confirmation (which for whatever reason seems to be the hottest pendant trend RN)—bargain!
Reach for necklaces that are different styles and lengths
Mix dainty with chunky chains to keep them separated and add cool textures. Pendants matched with dainty chokers are super dreamy and prevent the dreaded necklace tangle.
Celebrity Jeweller Stephanie Tchamanian has spilled her best chain length tips and they seem to have serious logic and thought behind them:
-14″: This length is flirty as it sits right on the collar bone and accentuates the neck.
-16″: This is the perfect everyday length with or without a pendant embellishment.
-19″: It’s the perfect layer on every body type. At this length, your chain will just graze the top of your décolletage.
-26″: Your boldest and most versatile layer! I love to wear my longer chains over a sweater or a turtleneck during the winter or dropped into a summer dress as a peek-a-boo chain.
Cascading necklaces add serious elegance to your décolletage
Different textures of metal resting on your collar bones and trailing down your chest adds automatic style to your look.
Lastly, keep things versatile
You want to be able to mix and match with an array of different outfits and pieces, so stick to rose, silver and gold hues with beautiful textures— you can’t go wrong!
