Time for another guest post? We thought so too. Last week you heard Anna's tips to layering your necklaces but now we have also asked Emily Knightly, blogger at Sugar & Spice to tell us how she wears her jewels. Take it away Emily... At a time when statement necklaces have never been bigger, both in size and popularity, there is never a better time to learn the art of layering jewellery. They say, less is more. But is it? Sometimes I'm happy to throw on a simple delicate necklace and be done. I have a special necklace, bought for me by my fiancé a few years ago, that I wear everyday. But other times, a pile of layered pendants and necklaces is just what the occasion calls for. Think Audrey Hepburn in Breakfast at Tiffany's with her pearls piled on: the very epitome of glamour and quirky elegance. I've put together my top tips for layering your necklaces - by no means exhaustive but certainly a good starting point for anyone wanting to try the trend:
- Begin with a delicate necklace with as short a chain as possible. Something with a small stone or charm, or maybe one of Anna Lou of London's name necklaces, would work;
- Next, take a slightly longer necklace with a chunkier chain. Maybe a statement-look necklace with a large gem or a series of sparkly stones? Try out one of the necklaces from Anna's new Luxe collection here.
- Add one or two longer pendants. I like to use ones with delicate chains here, and maybe a locket or trinket attached;
- Finally, add a string of beads or pearls. Make sure to have the longest string possible, so that you can wrap them around two or three times, adding more layers in one move.
