Layer it up

Gone are the days of wearing one necklace, it’s time to layer up. The newest trend is to wear two or even three necklaces to make a statement with your own personal style.

At High Life North, we love Missoma. They have gorgeous pieces from delicate pendants to chunky chains that will take your look from zero to hero regardless of your outfit. Missoma actually sells layering sets to keep it super easy to find pieces that work well together. 

The High Street also has a range of great options to play around with, our top picks are listed below. 

How to wear…

Stacking your necklaces can vary from outfit to outfit, so don’t be scared to try different combinations and find what works for you. There is no right or wrong way, but here are a few top tips…

Style with basics

When styling with basics for day to day you can still make a statement. Why not add some golden accessories to a basic tee or cami for an effortless but chic look. Add a blazer for extra style points.

Create a balanced look

Always try to create a balanced look. When choosing your combination consider the length and spacing between necklaces for your chosen outfit’s neckline. You don’t want your statement to get lost amongst clothing.

Mix delicate with chunky

Mix it up, try to use necklaces that complement each other. Three is the magic number so go for two more delicate chains mixed with one chunky chain.  Too many chunky pieces can look too heavy but they do add real texture so make sure to include one to get a nice balance. 

Always keep it in line with your personal style

Whether you are keeping it subtle or making a statement always make it personal. Choose pendants and stones that suit you and your style. If you wear bags and belts that have silver details on them then try to stick to the same colour tones.
