Just like with our clothes, stacking chains or necklaces can be challenging and one does not always know where to begin. But with a little practice, the effect can be fantastic! It is a question of proportions, necklace lengths, combinations and the garment that you wish to style. The idea is to play with various metals and especially lengths for a smart and original effect.
1. Necklace length: Start with a chocker.
Chose a necklace length -or chain- that is rather short, close to your neck and minimal. This piece will set the tone of your mix. Find a chocker that is pretty thick, rests beautifully on your collarbones, in a metal that complements your skin tone.
2. Think of bar necklaces.
The second chain should be slightly longer than the first one. If you go for a minimal layering, find a delicate chain that will subtly peak out from underneath the chocker.
3. Finish with a pendant.
This is the longest piece, and if possible go with a pendant, something heavy that will stay in place. Also remember to chose a piece that will go well with your clothes.
So which is your style? Are you minimal or statement?
