Step-by-step guide to layering necklaces

Follow our handy step-by-step guide to layering multiple necklaces

Step 1. A long necklace or charm necklace is the perfect foundation for your necklace party. 

Step 2. Choose a mid-length necklace, possibly with a pretty drop detail, to create variation in length and texture. 

Step 3. Finish off your necklace party with a minimalist short necklace or a choker. To prevent your necklace party from becoming too busy, make sure to vary the chains and make sure not to include a charm or drop detail on every layer. This kind of look is all about creating that perfect balance between the weight of your necklaces.

 

Additional tips for your necklace stack

There’s a few more small touches that will really make all the difference to your necklace party: 

Highlight the right areas

A key fashion rule is to always determine what you want to put the focus on. Are you wearing a top with a deep V neckline? In that case, go for a lovely delicate necklace stack, after all you want your bare skin to be able to breathe. When wearing a high-neck or printed top, a busy necklace party is a major no-go! A single chain or delicate pendant necklace would be much better options. Finally, always pay attention to the necklace length, because you really don’t want your neck to look shorter than it actually is. Follow our guide on how to choose the right necklace for your neckline to get all the best tips and tricks! 

Match your metals to your skin tone

Knowing your skin tone is a really important factor in determining which colour metal suits you best. Want to know your exact skin tone? Well, it’s actually really easy! Simply check the veins on your wrists. Are they blue or purple? In that case your skin tone is cool. Do your veins have more of a greenish tinge? That means you have a warm skin tone. Cool tones suit silver necklaces and silver jewellery best, whereas warm skin tones look amazing in gold necklaces and gold jewellery. Trust us, wear the right metal and see your skin and eyes pop!

A necklace party for every occasion

While we love a necklace party, basically any time and anywhere, if we’re being totally honest there is definitely a time and a place for a massive statement necklace party vs. a minimal necklace party look. The trick is to match the right necklace stack to the occasion. When you’re going to a party, go right ahead and go all-out with the necklace stack, but it might be best to tone it down for a work meeting, or any other more formal occasion. Keep reading for the best necklace-parties for different occasions.  

1. Necklace party for the office

Don’t be afraid to wear a necklace stack to the office, after all a good necklace look has the power to instantly boost your mood during a boring day at the office. Plus, a classy turtleneck looks 10x better with a couple of beautiful necklaces. A fairly basic outfit can definitely handle different necklace styles, so why not experiment with layered necklaces and long necklaces. If you’re wearing a slightly more statement outfit, keep the accessories simple with some minimalist necklaces, because honestly, you’re still at the office and you need to keep things professional too. Finding the balance between fashion and professional is definitely key here. Still necklaces are definitely the perfect finishing touch to your office fit! 

2. A big night out

A big night out means it’s your chance to go all out in the necklace stakes! Choose the necklaces you want to wear and make sure to match lots of different styles & lengths. You could do chain necklaces, beaded necklaces and drop necklaces in mixed lengths for a funky look. This look would be ideal for candle lit dinners, all night dancing, or movie night. Sure, the movies might be dark, but that doesn’t mean you can’t make jaws drop the moment you step into the cinema lobby, right?! You gotta grab every chance you get to impress, girl! 

3. Holiday style

Ah summer holidays, don’t you just love daydreaming away to the idea of tropical beaches, palm trees & cocktail bars, ‘cos we certainly do! Holidays also happen to be the ideal time to show off your style (always be prepared for a cute holiday fling!) and a necklace party has be a part of that. Just as well all our necklaces are made of premium stainless steel, so there’s no need to worry about taking off all your jewellery pieces when on the beach or swimming, because these pieces won’t tarnish! So, if you’re lucky enough to have a beach holiday or city trip coming up, don’t be afraid to go all out in the necklace department. Literally, the more the better! Beaded necklaces & shell necklaces simply have to take up space in your suitcase! Are you more of an adventure seeker when on holiday? An easy & comfy necklace party is the way to go here! Choose pieces that won’t get in the way too much, like a choker or minimalist short necklace.

Pssst.. one last final secret: can’t be bothered with multiple chains that are bound to get all tangled up? Go for a necklace set and you’ll be done in seconds!
