Style Breakdown: Layering Jewelry

There are few things in life as challenging as putting together the right accessories.

Okay, that’s a lie. Just in typing that sentence, my brain thought of at least 10 things that are most definitely more challenging than jewelry assembly. I mean, try living on your own and having the urge to rearrange every piece of furniture in your apartment. Not that I’ve done that. This month.

 Alright, no but really- for what it’s worth, accessorizing can be a trickier part of styling an outfit. My answer for this, my gift from me to you? The long, overdue unshared secret of layering! Okay I’m being dramatic again…


Layering jewelry is sooo much easier than some babes make it look + can pull together an entire outfit. Here’s a few of my favorite tips for layering your cutie jewels:

Keep it simple. Every piece you’re wearing doesn’t need to be a statement piece (unless that’s what you’re going for!) Pick one show stopping piece and allow everything else to compliment. Like for me, I love a good coin necklace. They became one of the trends I obsessed about in 2018. So I wear my favorite coin necklace then add my simple “A” charm (it’s on a really dainty gold chain). Done!

Don’t be afraid to mix and match. There are no rules in fashion. The word “fashion” should mean “the absence of rules”, but I’m not Webster! What I mean to say is, gold can go with silver, if you want it to. You can wear a chunky ring on every finger, if you’re feeling it. My advice on this one- make sure there’s an ebb and flow of design, y’know? Do the pieces all correlate with one another, do they fit the vibe of your outfit?! This is up to you to decide, but if you are feeling yourself when you look in the mirror, pieces gleaming…it’s a vibe, sis!

Cheat. No one in life will ever tell you this, so take this chance while you can. CHEAT. Layering is such a hot trend right now. So many brands are creating pieces that do the layering for you! Pick up a couple of pre-layered necklaces from Boo Hoo, match them with ring sets (an ebb + flow hack!) from H&M and you’re good to go!

One thing to remember, you are the one wearing all of this. If you feel cool or beautiful or sexy or anything positive, then rock it! Like I said- no rules!
