Have you seen pictures of people wearing perfectly layered necklaces that look like they were created to be worn together and wondered how they did it? Have you tried to create your own stack that doesn’t look quite right? We’ve all been there. So step away from the multi-chained necklaces and follow these tips to create your own individual stack, personal to your style!
STACKING BY LENGTH
The key rule to stacking is to have necklaces of varying lengths so you can give them all the attention they deserve! We recommend having chains that are around 2 inches different in length for a subtle look and you can always add a longer chain for the more dramatic stack.
Start off with a choker or short necklace as a base layer and then add some longer pieces to complement it.
Here are some of our favorite base layer necklaces:
Here are some of our picks for the longer layers:
STACKING BY WEIGHT
Don’t be afraid to have chains of different weights in your stack, it’s all about picking pieces that both complement and contrast each other. Try stacking dainty pieces with thicker chains for a more bold look. Or play around with textures and try a flat choker with a long thin chain.
Here are some different weighted necklaces that you can use to build your stack:
STACKING DIFFERENT STYLES
The best part of creating your own stack is having fun and expressing your personal style! Try adding a pop of your favorite color or a beaded necklace alongside a plan chain to add a little bit of you into your selections!
Here are some ideas:
HOW MANY IS TOO MANY?
Can you ever have too many necklaces on at once? (Probably, but we don’t need that kind of negativity here!) It all depends on what necklaces you’ve chosen and what the occasion is, you can wear anything from two to five in one go. Two or three are perfect for every day, whereas four or five are are more of a statement.
A classic and safe stack is having a choker, a short necklace, and a long necklace, like this:
WILL I GET TANGLED?
We’ve got you covered, don’t worry! Use our StackEm to keep your stack tangle free! The spacing between our StackEm hooks allows you to layer without any tangles and it allows you to adjust the length of any necklace. (You’re welcome!)
MIXING METALS: ARE YOU FEELING BRAVE?
You’ve probably been told that mixing metals is not a good idea, but we say why not?! Step outside the norm and try mixing different metals for a bold and creative look. You can even pull different metals together with a mixed metal chain.
You’re now all set to create your own personalized stack of necklaces! Tag us in pictures of your ZUDO stacks on our social media platforms so we can see your beautiful creations! Happy stacking!
