Our Guide to Layering Necklaces

How to Layer Like an Expert

Layering necklaces: It began as a trend, but we’re happy to say that it’s here to stay at Kendra Scott. Layering necklaces is one of our favorite ways to accessorize – because why wear just one of your favorite necklaces when you could wear all of them? Here’s our guide to layering necklaces, whether you’re new to the trend or simply looking for more inspiration.

Layering Necklaces in 3 Easy Steps

1. Start With a Staple

Invest in a base pendant that you can wear every day and add different layers to it depending on the outfit or occasion. (Psst… The Fern and Mattie are both dainty necklaces that would perfect bases to your layers.)

2. Go Lightest to Heaviest

Organize your layers with the most delicate at the top and heaviest at the bottom. Then, balance the distance between them to create the most artful look. Pro tip: Lay out your pieces in the order you want to wear them before fastening!

3: Mix & Match

Add an eclectic touch to your layers with mixed metals or different chains. A few of our favorite styles to accomplish this? The Elisa, Nola, and Lisa necklaces. One of the best parts of layering necklaces is you can create completely new looks by simply swapping a piece or two!
