ALL IN THE DETAILS: Layer Up, It’s Cold Out There

Who says that layers are just for clothes? During fall it’s hard to predict whether you’ll need a sweater or a full on parka. One thing that you can always be sure of is what accessories to wear.

Layering necklaces is the easiest way to take your fashion to the next level at a cheap (or expensive) price. We’ve experienced high and low trends through various designers on the runway, yet it took us forever to realize that the pairing of two necklaces together is like designing a whole new accessory itself. Mixing and matching is okay when it comes to jewelry. High or low, bold colors or simple classic silver and gold, you can instantly amplify any outfit.

This Fashionista perfectly showcases how it’s okay to mix metals. Her long, dramatic pendant is accompanied with a shorter, choker necklace that creates the idea of one unified necklace, as well as, a little unpredictable contrasting detail. The outfit is complete with a simple white T-shirt, some comfy jeans and a trendy jacket to match her combat boots.

I think it’s important to always have only one piece that your eye is drawn to. All of the other accessories should be details that complement the statement piece you chose. The Fashionista’s bracelets, earrings and ring are something that she has the option of leaving on every day. We all know everyone gets tired of being able to find only one earring instead of both in the mess of their apartment, so make your life simpler by using earrings you know will go well with almost anything. They almost always complement the main piece.

How To: Even though this look is very casual, don’t feel limited in the ways that you can rock the layered look. Try using more formal necklaces to create something more dressier and more striking.
