How To: Layering Jewelry

Just because it’s getting warm, doesn’t mean you have to stop layering Royals!

I am absolutely IN LOVE with this trend right now and can’t wait to scour the internet and various boutiques for the pieces I’m looking for. I think layering bracelets is an especially hot trend that won’t be leaving us anytime soon. Paired with a divine menswear watch like the Michael Kors Runway and you’ll be sporting some serious arm candy! Necklaces look feminine and chic when kept thin and delicate. Here are some of my favorite pics that give me layering inspiration. After you check out the pics, make sure you stick around to learn the DO’s and DON’Ts of layering jewelry!

DO mix metals. Gold, Rose Gold, Silver and everything in-between look great together. Just make sure to keep it consistent everywhere else!

DON’T think that one size fits all. Layering is all about mixing and matching complementary pieces of jewelry- Not keeping them the same! Mix chunky pieces with delicate items and you’ll be right on target.

DO combine textures, gemstones and materials. Leather looks fab next to pearls next to linked chains next to diamonds! Keep your layering as eclectic as you are.

DON’T combine too many colors. Pull a statement color out of your outfit and incorporate that into your layered pieces. Or why not throw a random neon piece into the mix. It’s so on trend right now!

DO have fun with it! This look can be as simple or complex as you’d like. Pile on the bracelets to be extra chic and draw attention to your every gesture or slip on a couple of delicate necklaces to add extra sweetness to your sundress. The choice is up to you!

DON’T do the most. If you’re wearing a plethora of layered necklaces, keep earrings simple (think studs). Going for arm candy today? Don’t pair them with a million necklace or rings.

DO learn the art of organized chaos. This is not about piling on a bunch of random stuff or wearing all of your favorite jewelry at once. There’s an art to it! Keep everything organized and follow the suggestions above. You’ll be layering like a pro in no time!


Layer Royally,
