Think about it.
Layering clothes has two main functions; insulation and to devise a look that is yours. It involves mixing prints, textures, pilling one piece over another. By now, the recipe of layering in known to everyone and each of us have mastered it in our own way.
But what about layering jewelry? Although it falls short on the insulation property that comes with layering clothes, it does make some hell of a look.
It's all a matter of how you use something. Take this vase above for example (used above as a display stand), which is not even a vase but a jar, bought with the intention of storing marshmallows which I don't even eat unless when camping and there's a fire, but wait; I don't go camping. You get the picture. It's a about making something purposeful, in your own way.
If I haven't convinced you yet why you should try layering necklaces, I'll give you some experience- grounded reasons. Read on!!
1. You're bored with a necklace ( see above the ethnic inspired turquoise stone necklace). Layer a rhinestone one above. You have a new necklace,
2. Make a statement necklace a STATEMENT necklace.
3. You can't find what you're looking for. It happens to all of us when we have a picture of what we want to exist but nothing really satisfies our expectations (or is it just me having vivid imagery of jewelry, coats, trousers and shirts that only exist in my head?)
"DIY" your own statement pieces without getting your hands dirty. It only requires clipping on one necklace, grabbing an other one and clipping it on top. Take advantage of the multiple places you can choose to clip your necklace to place it in the exact position you want on top of the other one to get the best of both worlds.
So what are your thoughts? To layer or not to layer?
