Yes, You Can: Layer Your Jewels

 

As the summer season winds down (le sigh), my heart is begging to cozy up in chunky fall knits and to layer, layer, layer. Obviously, my heart doesn’t care that it’s still almost 80 degrees outside. The solution? Jewelry layering – and I’m not alone. Delicious stacks of arm candy are the regular at the Rue offices, and lately, I’ve noticed this cleverly piled-on look has worked its way up to necklines. Hooray! I have gobs of necklaces hanging in my closet just begging to be mixed, paired, and mingled with abandon. Taking cues from the Rue girls, here’s how to get the look:

1. Balance the dainty with the substantial. Oversized statement necklaces perk up light, gold-spun strands. So simple.

2. Mix lengths. Start with necklaces that hit close to your collarbone, then work your way down with baubles that hang lower.

3. Add just one more. Once you think you’ve layered your necklaces just right, try adding one more. To your surprise, it may look even better. And if it doesn’t, simply take it off. No harm done.
