Jewellery layering is a trend that’s been around for ages, but it’s really peaked this Spring-Summer, with the likes of Gigi, Kendal, Kylie & co sporting the look all over our Insta-feeds. It’s actually a really simple trend to work into your wardrobe for summertime, and I wanted to break it down and share it with you here on the blog.


How does it work?

The rules are simple, just choose a few dainty gold chains of different lengths, and wear them all together for a mix-matched, off -beat look. Bonus points if you can include both a choker necklace and a longer lariat style in their too, as it creates a much more dramatic, fuller look.

The key ingredients:

  • A choker necklace (either a ribbon or chain one)
  • Some dainty chains of varying lengths
  • A lariat necklace

Top Tip:

Try making your own chokers out of ribbon, or try shortening the back of one of your own necklaces to turn it into a choker. You can also pick up handy necklace extenders, to add a bit of length to one of your necklaces when creating a layered effect.

What to wear it with:

This trend looks amazing with simple teeshirts and strappy cami tops, but for maximum impact, pair it with a deep-V plunging top for your next night out, it’s sure to turn some heads!

Everything I’m wearing in the photo above is from Shopbop’s jewellery section, but you can also shop some of my budget picks below:

Happy Shopping,

    Some gorgeous pieces, Ciara! Layering is such a great way to add your own personality to an outfit. Particularly love the lariats. They are always very popular on our site – aquaruby.
