How To: Layering Your Jewels
Layered: Infinite choker, Waterfall of the Heart necklace, & Empress body chain.
Layering YCL necklaces has become our signature style. Our beautiful YCL women are loving to wear 2-5 YCL designs all together, & with warmer weather just around the corner in Australia, pairing sparkling fine jewels with a beautiful dress will be all you'll find me in this Summer!
Really, when it comes to layering jewellery you can be bold or minimal as you'd like. You can layer chunky on chunky, fine on fine, whatever you like! Here at YCL, our style is quite subtle & minimal, so today I'll be chatting about how to achieve the perfect layered look with fine pieces.
Layering How To:
Choose your lengths: My go-to layered style includes a choker, a piece that sits over my heart, & then a body chain. I create this style with 3 YCL pieces: Infinite Choker, Waterfall of the Heart necklace & our Empress body chain. It's best to try to stagger your necklace lengths so they all flow together, rather than having 3 necklaces that all sit at the same length; as they will bundle up & you won't get the full 'dripping down' effect on the decollage.
Work with your outfit: It's important to think about the outfit you are wearing, as you won't want to pair a body chain with a turtle neck, long sleeve top, as you wouldn't see it. When I layer quite a few pieces, I like to wear a top that dips quite low, as then as stage & level of the necklaces are highlighted. If I am wearing say a high scoop-necked top, I would pair two chokers, one worn on the tightest loop, & then one extended to the longest loop. Our Constellation necklace & Sanctified choker work well. I would then pair these styles with our Infinite necklace, as it would drape beautifully down the top, whilst not being to bold on the high neckline.
Mix your styles: I am currently loving the look of long, fine earrings paired with 2-3 long-lined necklaces. It's almost looks like all your jewellery is flowing as one. I particularly adore this look in gold, with an all black or white ensemble.
Mix textures: Don't be afraid to mix it up with a simple gold necklace, black chord choker, & then a necklace that has a statement pendant. You can achieve this look with YCL pieces: From the Ocean necklace in garnet, Archaic choker in black & our Amulet necklace.
