As a wardrobe stylist one of the most consistent questions I am asked is how to get that perfectly layered necklace look. I like to call it accidentally chic- like you just threw on three random necklaces as you rushed out the door and it all looks so perfect and cool- little does anyone know that each piece has been perfectly coordinated. Here are a few easy rules to follow to avoid looking like Mr. T
1- Keep necklaces to a maximum of three- One should be an almost nothing, simple chain; one should be the stand-out/statement making layer and the third should lie somewhere in between.
2- Pay attention to length- you want all three necklaces to be visible and not compete. Think, short, medium and long.
3- There should be some consistent theme/color/shape that ties all the pieces together. Not to say they should all be perfectly matching strands but they should all compliment each other.
4- When all else fails, look for piece where all the layers are attached as one necklace- all the thinking is done for you!
Some of my favorites are (clockwise from top left) he Native Tiered necklace by Bauble Bar $68, the Semi Precious Circle Multi-Row Necklace by Topshop $18, Alexis Bittar’s Double Fringe Pendant $145 and the Frey necklace by Danijo $245.
