How to Properly Layer Accessories
How have you been this week? I have been mostly good! You know what I learned this week? If you don’t think you are beautiful no one else will!
During Mother’s Day weekend, I kept seeing examples of improperly placed accessories. I like to follow the rule set by Coco Chanel, before leaving the house, always remove one accessory. Over accessorizing is never good. Here are a few tips when wearing necklaces, dangling earrings, and arm pieces.
When layering necklaces, the best look is a short length necklaces with a long necklace. The necklaces should compliment each other and one should be more dominant than the other. This Rachel Roy necklace is a perfect example of layering necklaces:
If wearing long dangling earrings usually a necklace is not needed. If you do choose to wear a necklace, wear a long necklace so there is separation between the earrings and your neck piece. A short necklace should never be worn with long dangling earrings.
I love to layer bangles. However, I usually limit my layering to three. Three just seems like enough and not overpowering. However when I wear a cuff, one is enough. A big beautiful cuff should speak for itself.
