As one great designer said, “Any opportunity to adorn oneself is human, and accessories are an easy way to do it.” Marc Jacobs was right; accessories are an easy way to make any dull outfit into a fashionable one. An accessory that never seems to go out of style is a great necklace. They are always being reinvented to keep up with the changing trends. Last season, statement necklaces were worn around by everyone. This season, necklaces got a more simplified makeover. The latest trend is to layer necklaces. You can layer a little or go wild and layer a bunch.

There are various types of necklaces out there that you can layer; it can be a little overwhelming. Take notes from this Fashionista, who knows how to choose the right pieces. Building your outfit first will help make the decision process easier. This Fashionista builds her outfit around her lace camisole. The burnt orange color goes well against her warm skin tone. A black strapless bra is worn under the sheer top. The pair of distressed denim shorts go along with her casual but chic look. The gray sandals create an interesting contrast with the orange top. The colors work because she pulls all of them together with her necklaces. The black choker with gold charms goes well with her top just as the long gray necklace matches her sandals. A silver choker is layered with the two. The different lengths play well together with her outfit. A single gold bangle is worn to balance the mix of metals.

How To: Layering necklaces can be tricky sometimes. The neckline of the top is something to always keep in mind when wearing this accessory. Always have different lengths of necklaces. Start off with one close around the neck and add one a couple inches longer. You can add as little or as many as you like.
