A great jewellery stack is like an outfit change, it can elevate a subtle conference room look to one that’s fit for the bar! Layering jewellery is a surefire way to make use of your pieces and add some oomph to an otherwise plain outfit.
Whether you’re looking to stack your rings without looking clunky, or figuring out just the right amount of bracelets to wear before they weigh your arms down, here is our easy beginner’s guide to a perfect stack every time.
We’re sure you’ve seen layered necklaces everywhere lately! A surefire way to a good necklace stack is to put dainty necklaces of varying lengths together, around an inch apart from each other.
For a more subtle look, ensure that only one of the chains has a pendant/heavy charm and keep the rest simple. If you want to go all out, layer chunkier necklaces with thinner ones and make a bold statement!
It’s hard to go wrong with a bracelet stack, but a good tip to keep in mind is to try and layer thin bracelets with chunkier bangles that balance each other out nicely. For a clean and formal look, pair bracelets with smooth and polished finishes. If you’re looking to jazz things up, pairing beaded bracelets
and chunkier shapes with thinner delicate pieces is the way to go.
When stacking rings, a rule of thumb is to stack multiple on a finger or two and leave the rest bare for an eye-catching but balanced look. Keep things interesting by playing with gemstone colours and by using different textures and thicknesses.
Another fun ring stack idea is choosing a focal statement piece and layering or placing more delicate pieces around it.
More earrings = more fun! You can opt to go dainty all the way by stacking small studs all along your ear. For a bold look, start with bigger pieces like hoops or huggies on the bottom lobes and go smaller as you move upwards. Also, throw caution to the winds and mix and match both ears, who said your stacks have to match?
With this guide in hand for reference, keep in mind that you can rarely go wrong with jewellery stacking as long as you’re loving the look! So, break out all your beloved pieces and until next time, keep STAC-ing!
