Since this is basically how I wear my jewelry everyday, you could say I’ve become a bit of an expert on the matter. I love a dainty, layered look. It’s simple, pretty, not too overstated and elevates any outfit. Even sweats — see below:
HOW TO BUILD A LAYERED LOOK:
- Collect your favourite pieces over time: chains, coins, charms, some personalized with initials or special mementos that mean something to you. Of course, you don’t have to do this. I just think it’s special to wear pieces that hold significant sentimental value. All of my pieces from Bip & Bop have an initial, date or name engraved into them and were given to me at significant times in my life.
- When building your layers to finish off an outfit, choose 2 or 3 to style together. You could even go with more but depending on your look it could start to look tacky, the idea is simple details.
- Layer! You want each necklace to hang at a slightly different length so when they are worn, they are all visible, giving you that effortless, layered look.
Appropriate storage: it’s crucial to keep your jewels organized on display or packed away when they aren’t in use, so they don’t get into a tangled mess. You KNOW how horrific that is.
To avoid losing hours on detangling duty, I got this organizing stand to hang all my necklaces but I was recently gifted this little travel case from Lavender & Grace so I can travel in the same fashion.
Since I always get asked, I thought it would be helpful to share some of my current favourite pieces and designers with you in case you’re looking to add any new ones to your collection:
Do you have any others I should be adding to my list?? What are some of your faves? XO
