Layered Necklaces:

Off-the-shoulder and one-shoulder tops and dresses are all the rage among fashionistas right now.  This style leaves a lot of real estate for flaunting another of this summer’s trends: layered necklaces.  

To achieve this look, pick 3-4 necklaces of varying lengths and wear them all at once.

Combine shorter chains with longer pendants or lariat necklaces. Try mixing it up with different colored metals: gold, silver and rose gold look amazing together! 

Layered necklaces can also be used to accessorize deep V-neck tops and tanks. 

And best of all, this look works well with all types of patterns, designs and colors from stripes to gingham to floral!

 

 

If you’re looking for a way to show off your own unique style, layered necklaces are a great choice, since you’re using a variety of pieces from your own collection.

Personalize the look even more by adding in a pendant featuring your birthstone or an engraved piece with your name or initials.

Stackable Rings & Bracelets:

Another terrific thing about summer fashions is the fact that your arms are free from sleeves and ready for you to show off bracelets and rings! Just like layered necklaces, stackable rings and bracelets continue to be very much in style this summer.

New to stacking bracelets? It’s easy to accomplish the look you’re after, because there really aren’t any rules! You can include a mix of cuffs, bangles and chains in different widths and even different metals. Your watch counts too, and makes a great focal point to build on. Add some personalization by including bangles with charms that show off your initials, interests and hobbies.

The same suggestions apply for stacking rings – just don’t go overboard or you could end up with a clunky appearance and really heavy fingers! Show off your individuality with rings of varying styles from modern to vintage or create a dynamic look by including multi-colored gemstones.

Add a Pop of Color:

Summertime is when you break out the brightest colors and patterns in your wardrobe, and the same goes for your jewelry. Colored gemstones dazzle in the bright sunshine and go great with a tan! Some of our favorite summer gems are sapphires, emeralds, opals and rubies.
