Summer is in full swing, and it's around this time of year that we start to feel a little bit of mid-summer boredom with our warm-weather wardrobes. However, as true opportunists, we consider July to be the perfect time to take a look at those old and tired pieces in the backs of our closets with fresh eyes — layering necklaces happens to be one of our favorite ways of doing so.
What better way is there to revitalize something you've worn time and time again? Read on, dear reader, to learn how to layer your necklaces with the best of them and make your collection feel brand new.
Mix it Up
An excellent way to start mixing and matching is to combine pieces from your favorite designers — there is something so exciting to us about achieving harmony and balance between pieces of wildly different visions.
This look is elegant and feels both coordinated and put-together, despite the fact that every piece comes from a different family. Pieces from Simon G, Michael M, and Tacori work especially well together. We love the thrill of fitting our favorites together like a glitzy puzzle; the Michael M cuff necklace is, in our opinion, absolutely to die for.
Find Your Center
A strong centerpiece is the best way to make sure the look you create is cohesive and visually exciting; an assertive pop of color or perhaps a heavy, ornate pendant are both great places to start. Once you have the star of the show squared away, finding stylish ways to highlight it will be easy.
Above are several solid, striking statement pieces to build your look around from designers Simon G, and Belle Etoile. If you're just getting started and find yourself struggling to figure out how to layer your necklaces, one hard and fast rule you will always be able to fall back on is this one.
Play with Length, Style, and Color
Look, a girl can only play by the rules for so long. If you're a staunch traditionalist and feel as though your creativity may be feeling a bit stifled, try out combinations that you don't see every day. Combining pieces of differing lengths, metals, stones, and overall aesthetics is often the best way to come up with looks that are both unique and unexpected — and awaken the hidden designer within.
This formidable quartet of Tacori pieces is one that most wouldn't consider right off of the bat — the varying chain lengths provide movement to the overall composition, while the bright, slightly clashing colors of the stones span a romantic palette that is absolutely stunning in practice. Check out the brand's Classic Rock, The Ivy Lane, Color Medley collections to find dozens of necklaces to fall in love with.
