Stacking necklaces 101



Jewelry stacking is one of the greatest activities brought to us by fashion blogs and stylish Instagram photos. Layering all sorts of jewelry became our everyday routine, rings, bracelets (arm candy is the norm), necklaces... And let's face it, it's super fun and can look amazing if you get it right. I feel like necklaces are more tricky than the rest of the bunch, somehow delicate neck area doesn't allow us much room for errors. Add all sorts of chunky bracelets on your arm and it will look tres chic, but many different heavy necklaces can only look funny and tacky. So what are the ''rules'' you should follow to get it right?

Be careful when mixing materials I'm the first one who thinks you should wear gold and silver together, but sometimes this is not the best looking combo when it comes to necklaces layering. Also, plastic and silver, or any other combo by that mater, may not look good together. Try it out to see how it looks, still, for the classiest result stick with one material.

Pay attention to length If the necklaces are the same length it can create an interesting effect, but it's better to layer longer and shorter ones together. That way every necklace will be visible. 

Shirt type matters Layered necklaces should complement the cut off the shirt, and vice versa, you need a nice neckline to show that jewelry off. If you are wearing a turtleneck or buttoned up shirt maybe it's better to skip delicate, dainty necklaces.

Less is more Like always with fashion and makeup, skipping an extra layer can do you good. There's a story that Coco Chanel once said you should always remove one accessory before leaving the house. Whether she actually said this or not, it is a good system to keep your look polished and classy.



Slaganje nakita je jedna od najboljih aktivnosti koju su nam doneli modni blogovi i elegantne slike na Instagramu. Toliko se odomaćilo da nam je postalo svakodnevna rutina, prstenje, narukvice (arm candy se podrazumeva), ogrlice... Zaista je jako zabavno i može divno da izgleda ako se nakit lepo uklopi. Imam osećaj da su ogrlice malo komplikovanije za uklapanje od ostatka nakita, nekako delikatna regija vrata ne trpi puno grešaka. Nagomilajte svakakve masivne narukvice i to će izgledati neverovatno, ali mnogo različitih teških ogrlica može jedino da izgleda smešno i kičasto. Pa koja su to ''pravila'' koja treba pratiti da bi se dobio pravi efekat?

Pažljivo mešajte materijale Ja sam prva koja misli da treba nositi srebro i zlato zajedno, ali ponekad to nije najbolja kombinacija kada je o slaganju ogrlica reč. Takođe, plastika i srebro, ili bilo koja druga kombinacija materijala, može da izgleda čudno zajedno. Isprobajte svaku kombinaciju dobro da biste videli šta dobro izgleda, mada se za dobijanje najelegantnijeg efekta treba držati istih materijala.

Obratite pažnju na dužinu Ako su ogrlice iste dužine to može zanimljivo da izgleda, ali bolje je da slažete duge sa kratkima. Tako će svaka ogrlica biti lepo vidljiva.

Oblik majice je bitan Naslagane ogrlice treba da doprinesu kroju bluze, i obrnuto, potreban je odgovarajući oblik kragne da bi se nakit lepo video. Ako nosite rolku ili zakopčanu košulju možda je najbolje da preskočite delikatne, nežne ogrlice.

Manje je više Kao i uvek sa modom i šminkom, preskakanje poslednjeg sloja može da bude pozitivno. Postoji priča da je Koko Šanel rekla da uvek treba skinuti jedan aksesoar pre nego što izađete iz kuće. Bez obzira na to da li su ovo stvarno njene reči ili ne, to je dobar način da svaki put dobijete elegantan, sveden izgled.
