One jewellery trend that shows no signs of disappearing is layering – just look to Deepika Padukone and Rihanna for inspiration. The new accessory go-to – gold chains – have become statement wear. Layering several on top of one another looks particularly good when worn with a low-cut or V-neck shirt or blouse.
From long, thin chains and chunky link necklaces, to pendants with coins or shells, the secret to this trend is to mix and match – the more varied the styles, the better. Opt for a minimum of three chains to get the desired look and choose one dominant design as your statement piece. Play with colours, finishes, lengths and textures for a bolder look.
Remember to experiment with your designs to create a unique look. Layering your neckwear is a surefire way to add an instant injection of style to any outfit, with each compilation of necklaces an artistic creation in itself.
