Layer It Up



It's no secret that I have a pretty substantial collection of jewelry...but it isn't everyday that I want to wear a bold statement necklace.  So, something I've been doing more of lately is layering different styles together, which is a great way to get more use out of the smaller pieces I own.  These Chloe + Isabel necklaces are perfect for playing around with because they mix & match so easily - they also have beautiful statement pieces (see how I wore one here) and some amazing entrepreneurial opportunities for women too.  Check out my tips below for a fool-proof way to create a layered look using 3 different styles & let me know in the comments how you like to stack up your necklaces! 





What I'm wearing:
 Gap shirt (here), Zara top (similar), Forever 21 pants (here), J. Crew coat (similar), Me Too flats (similar here or here), c/o Chloe + Isabel necklaces (here, here & here), Merona clutch (similar here or here), Lips: Revlon Super Lustrous Coral Berry, Nails: Essie Splash of Grenadine

I like the idea of this! I feel like they would just get tangled on me, but it looks stunning with the necklaces grouped together!

I love layering necklaces and this is just perfect!

Kim said...

Love them...I keep trying but my necklaces don't quite go together!! I did wear a long pearl strand quadrupled (so it was short) with a long gold/gray/black beaded chain tripled (so it was nearly the same length as the pearls) at a conference the other day...look good until one broke!!!

I'll never get this right!

Great outfit! I love the color combo, and your shoes are adorable...similar to the Steven nude pumps everyone is wearing this season, but better because they're flats! :)

PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE share how you organize your jewelry? What is your system? xo

Kimberly said...

Hi Nagehan,

I use these acrylic stands to hold all my bracelets (I have four of them):

And for my necklaces, I bought two of these hooks, spray painted them white and installed them on my wall for necklaces:
