Mix + Match ||| THE ART OF STACKING
Some might say that stacking jewelry has seen its day [SAY WHAT?] but we beg to differ, along with about a million other girls and influencers alike. Stacking and layering jewelry isn't just for your typical editorial shoot and it definitely calls for a little finesse. So, in order to create the perfect stacked or layered look, we've come up with a few simple tips to ensure the perfect combo every time!
STEP ONE ||| CHOOSE YOUR COLORWAY
Ok ladies, if mixing golds is your jam, then by all means, mix away! BUT for some of us, the super edgy multi-gold vibe just doesn't fly. *
We suggest choosing one color gold to layer and stack. This way you can dress your look up or down by adding or removing pieces. For a more dramatic look add more layers + stacks or for a more casual feel, tone it down with just a few pieces.
*NOTE Step one need not apply to ear piercings! If you're edgy enough to rock 6 piercings up your lobes, then you should definitely be donning the multi-gold look!
STEP TWO ||| THE EVERY-OTHER RULE
Ok, so for instance, if you stack three rings on your pointer finger, skip the middle finger and place a midi ring on your ring finger, then you can add a pinky and thumb ring to the combo and your fingers are perfectly adorned! *
Same goes for wrist chains, if you're rocking a million chains on one wrist, just skip the other all together. Sometimes less is more, and we love the unbalanced asymmetrical thing. This goes for hand chains too. Allow the piece to stand out on its own but by all means, go crazy with the rings on the opposite hand!
*NOTE The thumb ring is always ok, no matter how many other pieces are on deck.
STEP THREE ||| TOO HOT, TOO COLD, JUST RIGHT!
Layering neck chains is an art in of its own and you really have to get it just right in order to pull off the look.
Length is definitely a factor when purchasing your neck chains in general. You wouldn't want to buy all your pieces at the same length because you would never be able to wear them together to create a layered look.
Another thing to consider is the occasion. If you're going for a more casual look, less is more, but you may want to doll yourself up a bit with several neck chains for a more glam look. With this in mind, our favorite or magic number is three, we love sets of three! You're usually always safe with this number since it works with a casual or dressy look.
We hope this helps when styling your jewels!
