Ask tristinstyling: How Do I Layer Jewelry?

stella dot randee kushner


Lately, I’ve noticed the trend of layering jewelry to create a nice mix of metals, tones, and textures. Sometimes it looks really good and sometimes it just looks bad.

How do I accomplish a tastefully done layered jewelry look?

Is there a way to accomplish this on a budget or do you suggest investing in higher quality jewelry to get that polished, but stylish and updated look?


Layering jewelry is definitely a way to spruce up any outfit since clothing isn’t the only thing in your wardrobe that becomes more interesting and fun when you layer. Jewelry looks even more fabulous when you layer it right!

In fact, one easy way to figure out which pieces might work well together is to just pay attention to how jewelry is layered in the photos that accompany product shots when you shop online or browse catalogs and magazines.
