Guide to Layering Necklaces

  • Consider your collar type
  • Choose one statement piece
  • Decide on the number of necklaces
  • Choose varying necklace lengths
  • Play around with different weights, materials, and chain styles
  • Consider colour and gemstones

Consider your collar type

The neckline of your outfit sets the stage for necklace layering. Have you got on a daring plunging neckline? Longer chains and pendants will be real attention-grabbers. Got a cute tube top? Go for a combination that includes choker necklaces. 

“Every collar has a necklace type that best suits it. When you layer necklaces, you get to push the rules on necklace and neckline pairings and add depth and sparkle to your collar and decolletage.”

 - The Vuoi Style Expert

Choose one statement piece

It can be hard to choose necklaces. Start with a statement piece to anchor all other pieces you put on. This standout necklace is the one you just feel for the day, the focal point for your look. It can be a diamond pendant, chunky enamel chains, or something dainty in pearls.

Decide on the number of necklaces

There is no “right number” of necklaces. You can go for two for a clean, classy look. If you’re feeling daring, you can go for a combination of four or more pieces. Ultimately, the number of necklace combinations depends on your personal style, but you do want to avoid creating an overwhelming look.

Consider colour and gemstones

Complementing colours in your necklace layers harmonises your look. Contrasting colours add a pop of vibrancy. For example, a chunky enamel chain or a cord necklace threaded with gold, combined with gold chains, adds personality and flair.
