Layering Necklaces 101

FALL in Love With Layering

With a new season comes a new opportunity to indulge in some fresh fall pieces. Layering your necklaces adds depth, personality and style to even your best outfits. 


Pick up one or two timeless necklaces and discover how to layer them with signature pieces that you already have in your collection. Your stunning necklace stack awaits! 

Picking the Right Layered Necklaces

Picking the right necklaces to layer is truly an art. Once you’ve gotten a solid layered stack on rotation, you can periodically swap out certain chains for statements pieces, ensuring that your look is always fresh! ✨


How many necklaces should you layer?

Three to four necklaces are typically the sweet spot for layering. Anything more than four tends to make your stack look cluttered and increases the chances of things getting tangled. 


Looking to make a splash with a minimal look? Opt for 3! Or maybe you’re going out on the town and wearing that jaw-dropping top with the deep V. Make the statement and go for 4!

Which necklaces lengths should you layer?

By keeping each of them approximately 2-4 inches apart, you’ll ensure that each necklace gets the moment it deserves. 


Think a 14”,18”,24”  for an elongated layered look and a 14” 16” 18” for a shorter layered look! 


Which chain styles should you layer?

There’s no hard and fast rule about which chain styles you should layer! Mixing larger styles with smaller styles is a great way to keep your look versatile. 


Some thinner more dainty chain styles include 1-3mm: 

  • Singapore

  • Box 

  • Rope

  • Ball


Some thicker more statement chain styles include 4-10mm: 

  • Herringbone

  • Curb

  • Cable

  • Figaro

Choosing Your Show-Stopper Centrepiece 

When the eye is drawn to your stack which necklace do you want to stand out front and centre? That’s your show-stopper centrepiece! We love a chunky curb chain or a luxurious herringbone to give the centre stacker just that oomph that you were looking for! 

When to Layer

Okay, so you may be thinking, this information is great but are there certain times when I should or shouldn’t layer? The answer...well sort of. 


A great general rule of thumb is to layer when you’re wearing v neck or scoop necklaces. These styles of shirts elongate your decollete and create a seamless backdrop for your layering stack! 


If you’re looking to layer but still want to remain cozy and warm as the temperatures drop, opt for a crew neck so you can perfectly layer all your necklaces above your sweater. 


Steer clear of overly loud prints and patterns that will distract from the main focal point of your outfit: your stunning necklaces!
