Go to great lengths! Layered necklaces for fall fashion

Go to great lengths! Layered necklaces for fall fashion

When the weather turns cooler we layer our clothes, why not layer our necklaces? Layering necklaces adds sophistication to your style while incorporating your favorite jewelry. You can achieve the right effect by following a few simple layering rules.

1. Consider your neckline:
The length of your first layer will be dependent on your neckline. If you're wearing a scoop neck, blouse, or t-shirt, start with a 16 inch choker with a dainty pendant, gemstone or pearls. If you're wearing a boat neck or similar high necked shirt, make your first necklace longer so that your necklace and your neckline don't fight each other.

2. Mix it up:
Make sure your second necklace stands out from the first. This can be achieved by using a different metal than the first or a different texture of chain. Consider a bold link or rice bead chain. If you're wearing a V-neck make your second layer longer than the plunge of the v.

3. At long last:
Your longest layer should have some heft. Consider heavier pieces for filling in a deep V. Pendants and baubles are also good choices because they draw the eye down and frame the first two necklaces.

Consider these options to create a one-of-a-kind accessory. Personalize by adding monograms or zodiac signs. For a sophisticated style, try simple chains in varying lengths. Want contrast? Add a horizontal bar necklace to break up vertical lines.
