If layering necklaces feels like a skill you need a certificate from Accessories School to master, you’re not the only one. But just because you don’t have a PHD in necklaces doesn’t mean you should stick to the safety of your single pendant chain – it’s easier than you think to freestyle this trend where anything goes. Think gold with silver, metal chains and bright beading, layered lengths or stacked statement pieces. The more inventive your necklace combos, the better! Try a few of these tried-and-tested layering trios on for size…

 

PLAY WITH LENGTHS

A few delicate strands can make a statement piece if you wear them together. Experiment with different lengths, shapes and pendants.
