When it comes to layering jewellery, it’s easy to over-accessorize, especially if your collection features an array of different styles, metals and stones. Here are a few tips on how to layer your jewellery effectively.
Be consistent with your colour scheme:
Layered jewellery tends to look the most ‘put together’ when you use pieces made of the same metal and finish. But too many chains of the same colour can look over the top and can make your layered look appear messy and poorly put together. Carefully balanced white and yellow coloured metals can look very contemporary and stylish together as long as the metals are of a similar finish.
Combine basic with bold:
Layering gives you the opportunity to showcase your more ornate pieces, but there are a couple of general rules to follow. Only include one statement item, and set it against a backdrop of more basic, minimalist pieces. You might find that you have a variety of simple trinkets, but you may be lacking the perfect statement necklace or bracelet to really finish off your look.
