How to layer necklaces- Simple hacks for styling necklaces

Here's some simple practises that can help you style your necklaces with some clean layers.

  
 
CHAIN LENGTHS
 
When wearing 2 or more pendant necklaces you will need
at least 10cm difference in chain lengths if you want
clear separation between pieces and to avoid the pendant
overlapping onto the next chain. This works for most
average size pendants however small micro
sized a distance of 5cm will be okay with a smaller gap.

Necklace Layer Lengths

MIX CHOKERS & PENDANTS

 

Starting a stack with a choker close to the neck is a
good starting point to build from. We recommend
going for a size 2 inches bigger than your neck measures.
If you're going with 2 chokers make the next one
1 inch longer than the first and then choose a
pendant necklace. A pendant will pull the chain down
into a V shape and create some negative space.
You can play around with the chain length to create
more or less negative space or even choose a longer
cuban chain to reduce the gap between pendant and chain.

The model below has a 15 inch neck and is wearing a
17 inch cuban choker and 18 inch light machine chain.

 

 

EXPERIMENT

 

After a while you will get used to the effects of using
certain length chains and start to utilise the negative
space and choose pieces the maximise all the
available area for clean layering.
