STYLE GURU STYLE: Keep Calm and Layer On

STYLE GURU STYLE: Keep Calm and Layer On

I recently fell in love with this necklace my mom used to wear. It somehow ended up in one of my college packing boxes and came to school with me. At first I felt bad, but then I realized this simple turquoise necklace went with almost every outfit. It was an unexpected pop of color from my usually dark colored closet.

After falling in love with the one simple turquoise necklace, I decided to keep a lookout for other unique pieces. I found the next two necklaces that are part of my layering while abroad. The combinations of the three different colors, mixed with the three perfect lengths, made for the perfect layering combination.

I had never been into layering until this year. I saw movie stars layering long necklaces with shorter chokers, but I never thought I could pull the look off. Once I found a necklace I felt extremely confident in, it allowed me to start adding more necklaces to the collection.

This goes for bracelets too. I always have at least four bracelets on each wrist, or none at all. Layering adds sophistication and a sense of style. I like the layering technique with this outfit a lot. I like it because I am wearing dark colors. By adding the pop of color around my neck it makes the outfit look complete. In this outfit, I am wearing a simple black shirt with my favorite pair of gray skinny jeans. I am also wearing a pair of black boots to complete the dark color scheme.

The easiest way to start layering jewelry is to buy a pre-layered necklace . By buying a pre- layered necklace, it takes the pressure of questioning whether the necklaces go together off. This also makes getting ready in the morning much easier because it is just one clasp. I know every college student needs more time to get ready in the morning.

Layering jewelry can seem like a daunting task. I always though only hipsters or movies stars could pull it off. I proved this wrong by falling in love with a necklace and deciding to keep piling on top of them.
