Just like figuring out how to layer your clothes can be tricky, learning how to layer necklaces takes a bit of practice too. But once you master the right proportions, the chic combination adds an intriguing and decidedly stylish element to any outfit, even if you’re simply wearing a t-shirt and jeans. An easy way to achieve the look is to buy a piece that already comes layered, like the Okura Street Necklace ($245, 323.651.1493) spotted on Isabel Marant’s S/S 13 runway. However, layering individual necklaces gives you a little more freedom to experiment with diverse baubles. The key lies in playing with different types of chains and mixing varying lengths for a cool, curated effect! Ready to tackle the look on your own? Read on for our picks and how to layer necklaces like a pro.

1. Start With A Choker.
Look for a choker that’s sleek and minimalistic, much like In God We Trust’s Thanks Collar Necklace ($120). The choker, which anchors the entire necklace combo, should be the thickest piece of the trio and rest right at your collarbone.
Also Try: BCBGMaxazria Pave Pyramid Choker ($48); Mango Vintage Style Choker ($30); Laura Lombardi Alchera Necklace ($40).

2. Add A Bar Necklace.
Your next piece should be a slightly longer than the choker. We suggest a subtle bar necklace, such as Sarah Chloe’s Curve Necklace ($89) in Gold Plated. Choose one with a delicate chain, which acts as the perfect foil to the choker’s thicker silhouette, that’s approximately 22 to 24-inches long.
Also Try: Just Access Woll Necklace ($30); Lori’s Shoes Crescent Bar Necklace ($19); Forever 21 Curved Bar Necklace ($4).

3. Finish With A Pendant.
Your third necklace should be the longest piece, preferably one with a pendant like Rose Pierre’s White Sand Castle Necklace ($48, available late April) to add a dimension to the look. Opt for a chain that’s about 30 to 32-inches long in the same metal family as your other two pieces, as this will ensure your trio has a cohesive feeling.
Also Try: Vince Camuto Horn Necklace ($48); Need Supply Co. White Horn Necklace ($34); Buckle Daytrip Filigree Horn Necklace ($12).
