Sure we all play favorites (we all have our go-to pieces), but when it’s done right, layering your look is super fun and bang on trend. It also helps you get more mileage out of your jewelry collection – the same way mixing and matching clothes does for your wardrobe. Here are a few tips to help you master the trend.
1. The first rule
There are no rules. Mix flashy with simple. Heavy with delicate. Color with no color. The world is your jewelry box.
2. Anchors away
Choose one statement piece that matches your outfit to anchor your look and then build around it.
3. Let your materials mingle
Tassels, gems, metals, silver and gold (yes, silver and gold!) – they’re all friends here.
4. The long and the short
Just like it’s good to mix materials, it’s even better to mix lengths. So go ahead pair that cute choker with a heavy pendant, mix short chains with long ones, mix a tight-fitting charm bracelet with a couple of loose bangles – it’s your party.
5. Let them fall where they may
In the case of layering, messy is ok. In fact, that’s what the trend is all about!
6. Have fun
You’re making a look that’s truly your own so don’t be afraid to take some risks. It’ll be worth it.
