For the past few seasons, the layering craze has shown no sign of slowing down. It’s a great way to make a statement with your jewelry. But if you’re new to the technique or if you struggle with mixing, matching and stacking your pieces, here are some favorite tips from Amie Guarino.
Necklaces When More Is Better
Whether piling on a few chains or teaming chunky pendants with dainty chokers, wearing multiple necklaces creates that easy-chic vibe that can make any outfit look fashion-forward. For the best pairings, mix and match necklaces in varied styles, widths and lengths so that each individual piece stands out. And keep the one closest to your neck simpler, so it doesn’t overwhelm you.

Make A Personal Style Statement With Rings

Features like birthstones and subtle engraved phrases make a personal style statement — as well as great gifts to mark special occasions.
