Tips to Layer Your Necklace Like a Pro:


Have you ever wondered how fashionistas wear layered neckpieces that seem mismatched yet look stylish anyway? Layering necklaces is a stunning fashion statement but can sometimes be overdone that it can ruin the whole vibe you’re striving for. Just imagine wearing two chunky necklaces of the same length! What you’ll end up with is tangled mess and an exaggerated maximalist style that you might have a hard time pulling off.

Layering your necklace is fun, and quite charming when done right. Here are some of our expert tips to layer your necklace like a pro stylist.  Whether you want to mix metals or styles, we’ve covered it all, just read on to ace your layering game.

Tips to Layer Your Necklace Like a Pro:

Know Your Intentions

What look do you want to achieve with your layered necklace? Are you aiming for classy elegance or edgy chic? Knowing your intended style expectations is necessary to work on the layering. While experimentation is good and you can figure out your vibe as you put things together, it’s certainly a lot more less dilemma when you know how you want to project yourself.

The Neckline Game

Well, this is a no-brainer for any necklace. But when it comes to layering, the neckline pays a very important role, since you don’t want it to disappear under tons of fabric or stop too short to leave too much of bare neck spare. The easiest way to handle this is to wear a layered chain necklace that’s either high or go with the deep scoop neck, this way your layered necklace and necklines won’t clash vying for attention.

Vary the Lengths

When it comes to layering necklaces, creating a cascading effect should be your intention. So, pick dual layered pearl necklaces with varying lengths to ensure that each has enough wiggle room, and a dedicated space to remain untangled and to also work together as a whole, instead of competing for prominence in your neckline.

Create Contrast

When working on layering it’s best to remember that contrasting your necklaces can create an interesting focal point. While layering similar styled chains can work in most cases, when you contrast the design, it can create your own statement piece. Think choker with a longer pendant necklace and you know what we’re talking about.

Start Small

Layering can be exciting, but you don’t have to do too much too soon. If you’re still experimenting with the layered look, start with just two necklaces and then work your way up. This way you’ll know what kind of necklaces you’re comfortable with and not go wrong with the layering.


Choosing the right necklace for your outfit is a fun activity. So don’t over-complicate with trying too much too soon. If you’re new to layering, try something simple, which looks elegant and dainty. As you gain confidence in your personal style you can start experimenting with layering chunky pendant necklaces, different textures and even metals. And if all else fails, you can just go with a pre-layered necklace that needs zero effort from your side as it won’t clash and compete with each other for breathing space.
