Layering necklaces is one of our favorite pastimes, and if you know us, you know we love a good necklace stack. The layered necklace look is more than just a trend - it’s a classic look that has no sign of going out of style. If you’re like us and want to make the most of the necklaces in your jewelry box, this is a must read! Follow our tips on how to create your perfect necklace stack!
Having different necklace lengths is a must to achieve the dreamy cascade of layers. We recommend wearing necklaces 2” apart from each other for the perfect look.
You could also layer necklaces 1" apart if you want them to be a tad closer, such as when you're layering multiple chains. Our Dainty Choker Set has two chains in one necklace that are already 1" apart, and you can easily achieve the cascading effect with this necklace!
If you have two necklaces that you want to layer, but they’re the same length - we’ve got you covered! Our Removable Extenders can add the extra length you need to layer. Most of our necklaces have a 2" extender so even if two necklaces are the same length, you can still get this look!

This is wear your inner stylist shines! Combine thinner chain necklaces with thicker chain necklaces. Adding contrasting textures & styles will make your stack more interesting, and as a plus, it’ll also tangle less! You can also throw in a coin necklace into the mix.
A trendier look we love is combining different chains together. We love the two-layer chain look with different chains.
Have a favorite necklace you want to show off? Make it the center stage of your look and work around it! Your most coveted piece will become a lot more interesting to look at when surrounded by pieces that complement its beauty!
We love wearing our layers with scoop necks or v necks. If you wear a crew neck tee, make sure your layers are either short enough to show on top, or longer so that it drapes below the neck. You don’t want your pieces to get lost! Our general rule is - the simpler the better. For example, wearing a scoop neck tee with solid colors is much more compatible for layers than a high neck patterned top. Look below for some outfit inspo!
Necklace tangles are inevitable, especially when you layer multiple at a time. But, we do have a handy tool called the Layered Necklace Detangler that makes it a whole lot easier to manage! It’s a game changer for necklace layering. All you do is attach your necklaces to the detangler & go about your day! You can read more in our handy article we wrote about How to Keep Your Necklaces from Tangling.
We also have some other tips that will help necklaces from tangling so much:
Make sure your lariat necklace is your longest layer. A lariat is stunning on its own, but when added to a layer, this necklace adds a dimension other necklaces can’t without being too extra.
Don't have a lariat necklace? Not to worry - shop our lariats here!
In the end, there is no right or wrong way to layer necklaces. These are just tips to help you get started with your layering adventure. Get creative & have fun with it! Want more layering inspiration? Follow us on Instagram & Pinterest!
