How I Layer My Necklaces Like A Pro

Designer and stylist to the stars, Rachel Zoe believes that accessorising is all about enhancing your own personal style. She says that your jewellery helps define your look, and here are her insider secrets on how to layer your necklaces like a pro.

Secret 1

Think about the lengths of each necklace and order them from shortest (high at neckline) to longest (level at cleavage). And don't over do it! Stick with 2 to 4 necklaces so that your layers don't look too cluttered. The shortest necklace should be a small, delicate gold charm, and the longer necklaces should have medium charms. The Temple Necklace By House of Harlow is a gorgeous example of this.

Secret 2
Pair a large, over-sized, bold, statement (long) necklace with a dainty, small (short) bar necklace. Placing a bar necklace into the mix adds interest and looks amazing. The Bar Away Necklace by NastyGal and Amplitude Necklace By NastyGal are the perfect delicate layering pieces. I also love, love, love The Taner Pave Bar Necklace by GorjanaThe Taner Bar Small Necklace In Gold By Gorjana and The Taner Bar Small Necklace In Silver By Gorjana.

Secret 3
For the office, layer two round chunky necklaces that rest easily on top of each other under a crisp shirt with an open collar. Rachel Zoe likes a short thick gold chain paired with another round colourful statement necklace of a similar length. The Eliza Gold Chain Choker by NastyGal and Gold Chunky Curb Chain Collar by French Connection are perfect with all of these HouseOfHarlow1960 necklaces.

Secret 4
Personalize your collection with a letter, word or zodiac charm. Rachel Zoe suggests three different types of necklaces. The first has the initial of your name. The Dallas and Carlos Initial Necklaces In Gold are amazing, and such good quality. Love them. The second type is a gold or silver word necklace, and the Gold Gypset Necklace by CCSkye and the Oui Oui Necklace By NastyGal are both adorable to wear. And every girl needs to own a zodiac necklace, like The Rebecca Minkoff Zodiac Necklace In Gold. Very Carrie Bradshaw!

Secret 5
Mix and match. Gold + Rose Gold + Silver = Amazing. I love the The Lock Up Necklace By NastyGal. It's great to mix 'n' match. And the Belle Noel By Kim Kardashian MultiChain Necklace is made up of mixed chains that are brilliant for layering.

Secret 6
A coin necklace instantly adds a boho feel to your look. Rachel Zoe loves pairing a short beaded necklace with a medium length coin necklace and a longer gem-stone necklace. The Coined Up Necklace By NastyGal is an awesome layered gold chain necklace that has an adjustable lobster clasp closure.

Secret 7
Add a touch of turquoise. Rachel Zoe's style is relaxed, boho chic and she loves turquoise. The Heather Gardner 36" Layer Necklace In Gold Turquoise should be in every girl's wardrobe. I've ordered one, and I would definitely recommend it. I also love The 1960 Triangle Pendant Necklace In Turquoise By House of Harlow.

Secret 8
Add a rope (lariat) necklace for length when layering your pieces. RZ loves teaming a small necklace with a longer lariat necklace. The The Rupal Lariat Necklace by NastyGal, The Gorjana Infinity II Lariat Necklace In Gold and the silver The Helena Necklace by NastyGal are fabulous layering pieces.

Love, Elle xo
