We are going through a delightful time where nobody wants to stick to fixed rules or pigeonhole ourselves into narrow categories of existence.
And why should we when our unique souls have so many different shades to offer?
Learning how to layer jewelry will help you express your unique and contradictory essence without conforming to one way of being.
If you are intrigued by this creative way to wear your accessories but don't quite know how to implement it, don't worry. Your intuition and connection to your sacred being are an excellent first step to getting you there.
Why is Jewelry Layering All the Rage?
Our jewelry is not only meant to make us look better, but also to tell a story. Our story. The story of our magical soul walking the earth to fulfill a unique and transcendental mission.
Jewelry layering is the perfect way to use our favorite pieces at once so we can better assert our unique essence.
Here are some of the reasons why this trend is so popular…
It’s a Great Way to Express Yourself
If fashion is not there to support the expression of our inner selves, then we are doing something wrong. We are not here to fit in but to create a style that reflects our individuality.
Bracelet layering or necklace stacking helps us break out of the traditional ways of wearing jewelry and allows us to play with our choices.
We can be sentimental and bold at the same time or eclectic and vulnerable without any of these qualities contradicting each other.
It Allows You to Wear More of Your Favorite Pieces at Once
Have you arrived at an event fashionably late because you didn't know what jewelry to wear? Jewelry layering is the perfect trend for those who are indecisive and have complex ways of approaching emotions.
It Goes Along With the Recent Trend of Individuality & Creativity in Style
Have you noticed that it’s much more accepted and expected now to be unique with what you wear? Society is changing, and fashion is an expression of it.
In the past, we strived so hard to fit a practically unattainable stereotype of beauty. But why? We are inherently unique! The beauty of being human lies in diversity, and jewelry layering is living proof of it.
How boring it used to be when we all dressed alike, chasing the illusion that there was only one right way to wear jewelry.
How to Layer Jewelry
Although there are not many rules to jewelry layering, some guidelines should be followed to avoid tangles and make this style as seamless as possible.
Here are our best tips…
Mix Different Weights & Styles of Chains
If we use the same type of chains when necklace stacking, or if their weights are similar, they will end up twisting into each other.
Try using different weights and sizes to keep your pieces from getting tangled. The more delicate and lighter ones should always go on top with the heavier and longer ones underneath.
Mix Gemstones & Colors
There’s no point in jewelry layering if you use the same gemstones and colors! Be creative and switch it up to infuse authenticity and deeper meaning into your style.
Mixing gemstones and colors is a great way to create a unique look. Plus, in addition to offering more possibilities of style combinations, we can benefit from the healing properties of each gemstone, surrounding ourselves with good karma on-the-go.
Mixing metals is another way to add a bold and creative touch to your jewelry layering. It also offers more styling possibilities as it can be paired it with any outfit.
You can mix gold and silver on your necklaces, although we particularly love how it looks when bracelet layering.
Mix Plain Pieces With Statement Pieces
Another way to approach jewelry layering is to combine more eye-catching pieces with simpler ones for support. This technique creates a nice visual and fun effect with our jewelry.
Forget symmetry when it comes to jewelry layering! You can wear four bracelets on one arm, two on the other, a large hoop as a left earring, and an ear chain on the right. The important factor is balancing each piece of jewelry's weight and length. Then, it's all up to you!
It Doesn’t Have to be a Perfect Match
You don't need identical pieces to create an ideal match, especially with earrings or bracelet layering. Be authentic, and don't be afraid to stand out from the crowd.
Purchase Pre-Curated Stacks
As we learn about jewelry layering, an easy solution is to use the following carefully pre-curated stacks, each meaningfully designed to help us express our essence and release good energy into the world.
Each piece is crafted with traditional techniques used for generations that form an enticing alternative to mass-produced items.
