The DO's of Layering Necklaces
Layered necklaces are in right now.  If you browse Pinterest, fashion blogs, or street style magazines, you will find layered necklaces paired with casual or elegant outfits.  

Layering necklaces is simple and can completely transform your outfit.  Below are a few DO's of layering necklaces:

DO...Follow the "less is more" rule of fashion.   If you're feeling it, you can wear more than 4 necklaces at a time.  However, it generally looks better pairing only three or four necklaces.  You do not want to crowd your neckline and take away from your outfit.

DO...Pair pendants with thin chain.  For a simplistic and casual look, pair thin rolo chain with simple pendants.  Using thin chain will make your pendants pop.  It also creates a chic look.  What types of pendants should you use? Simple geometric pendants, wire wrapped precious stones, and hammered metal pendants look great!

DO...Stack statement pieces.  Glam up a high neckline dress or blouse with chunky statement necklaces.  Place the bulkiest statement necklace on the bottom and then stack two more on top.

DO...Personalize your layered look.  Use zodiac pendants, initials, birthstones, favorite charms, or antique pendants to make your layered necklaces reflect your style.

DO...Measure necklaces before purchasing or, if you're making your own, correctly measure chain before cutting.  Use this size template to determine how long or short you want your necklaces to be.
