How to Wear Long Necklaces and Tips for Layering

Layering long necklaces is officially one of the biggest jewelry trends for 2024. We love necklace layering, as you can experiment with different styles and showcase your personality. Long necklaces naturally grab attention and can be the focal point of your outfit.

It can take a little trial and error to find your perfect necklace stack. Don’t be afraid to experiment by mixing and matching different metals and lengths. You can layer any style of necklace, from a classic tennis necklace to a floral pendant.

While necklace layering is one of our favorite styling hacks, there are a few tips you should follow to create the perfect necklace stack and avoid your necklaces tangling.



  1. Choose different necklace lengths

Start layering by choosing two necklaces of different lengths. You want to avoid wearing necklaces of the same length as they can tangle and distract from each other. If you have necklaces of the same length, you may be able to shorten the necklace by choosing a different hole if it has a lobster clasp.

Your necklaces don’t have to match but should have something in common. You could choose two minimalistic necklaces, with one having freshwater pearls and the other having cubic zirconia.

  1. Select a larger necklace

A delicate long necklace is one of the easiest styles to layer, but sometimes it can look out of place, depending on your outfit. You can give your necklace stack a more intentional look by choosing a larger necklace as part of your layering. It doesn’t have to be oversized but should be larger than your other necklaces.

Our ‘Empowered Essence’ necklace is the perfect choice for layering as it’s a dual-strand style with a thin and thicker chain for a sleek look.

  1. Choose a statement necklace

You don’t have to stick to minimalistic pieces when layering necklaces. Choosing a statement style can help bring together your look and give it a more cohesive feel. Our ‘Heartfelt Promise’ necklace is a statement choker you can style with pearl or gold pendants. This necklace can be the focal point of your look and is ideal for strapless outfits.


  1. Keep the rest of your jewelry simple

If you’re layering necklaces, keep the rest of your jewelry simple. Choose earrings or a bracelet that matches the metals or gemstones in your necklaces. Our ‘Vibrant Vitality’ drop earrings are a simplistic style that works for every necklace stack.

  1. Consider your outfit and neckline

Choose necklaces that compliment your outfit and neckline. As a rule of thumb, it’s usually best to avoid wearing oversized clothing as they can distract from your necklaces, and more delicate pendants can get lost in the excess material.

Use your neckline as a base for choosing which necklaces to layer. If you’re wearing a lower neckline, choose necklaces with a shorter length to avoid them overlapping. Layer ‘Sparkling Eyes’ with ‘Soft Whisper’ for a necklace stack that works with every outfit.
