2. Play with lengths and sizes
Using pieces with different sizes and textures is a great way to put together a dynamic and interesting statement. Try pairing chokers and short necklaces with long lariat and opera necklaces, a broad headband accented with a few thinner ones, chunky statement rings with delicate midi rings, the choices are endless.
3. A lighter touch
Okay okay...so we all have real lives and like it or not, there are some situations where you can't quite get away with the whole bling party look. So instead of wearing miles of jewelry, try layering a few pendant necklaces. The thin delicate chains keep the look somewhat understated, but still definitely chic and stylish. Stacked rings are also a fun option to play with.
