4. Necklace Layering
A necklace can potentially get lost in an outfit and lose its effect, if you’re only wearing one. But with two or more necklaces, the smallest details are accentuated and made noticeable, creating the perfect look! Necklace layering is the smallest and slightest way to turn your look from drab to fab this summer. Accessorizing with a couple of small gold or silver chains with different pendants and lengths, is clever and subtle way to make an intricate bold statement. The pendants can include your name, your zodiac sign, your birthstone, or any meaningful engraved text. You can even include a chain with no pendant, because simplicity is key. Paired with any solid colored tops/dresses, this summer 2018, show your personality and style through necklace layering.
