Got a few (million) necklaces lying around? Put a fresh spin on your neckwear by layering a couple. To get you started, Rue Stylist Emma L. is dishing on her favorite insider tips.
Necklace Length Guide

When it comes to layering, Emma says, “It’s always best to go with no more than four lengths, and they should graduate from shortest to longest.” And don’t be afraid to mix metals or styles. Emma advocates pairing your silver and gold pieces (it’s not a no-no anymore), as well as combining chunky jewelry with delicate.

If you’re a one-necklace type of girl, then it’s all about wearing it with the right neckline. Emma explains, “I personally like a longer necklace with a higher-cut top – for instance, a crewneck or boat neck with at least an 18-inch chain.” Prefer something a little less buttoned-up? “More open options, like V-necks, can work with any necklace length,” says Emma.

Now head to your jewelry box and layer with abandon.

Loading up on jewelry is a must this season. So to get you stacking like a pro, our Fashion Director, Jackie, is dishing out her accessorizing tips.

Tips for Layering & Stacking IPPOLITA Jewelry

On Necklace Layering
“A standalone statement necklace is great. But a few layered together? That turns heads. Start with a one-strand necklace and wrap it around twice. Then, add a shorter pendant necklace – the bigger the pendant the better. Don’t be afraid to mix textures. Just stick to one color story.”

On Bracelet Stacking
“When it comes to arm candy, there are very few rules. Choose a wide statement bracelet to be your stack’s focal point, then pile on four or five thinner styles, all in the same metal. See? Easy.”
