This week we’re going loco for layers. The layered trend is definitely the trend to master this winter. Let the lowering temperatures inspire you to uplift your style with layered jewellery that demands attention. Experiment with textures and volume. Mix chunky chains with dainty pendants. Stack your knuckles with rings that radiate style. It’s 2019 - embrace creativity with your jewellery for a look that remains authentic.
For me, my jewellery box is a site of chaos. With fluffy earrings, gemstone rings, chokers, chains and even one rogue tiara, facing this array of mismatched jewellery can feel a little too overwhelming some mornings. Sound familiar? But even if, like me, your jewellery box is an eclectic jumble of various pieces, you can still mix and match for a layered look that’ll have you beaming with confidence. The truth is, when it comes to layering, there are no rules. You are the master of your style - so don’t hold back! Dive into your jewellery box with conviction and I guarantee you will put together an epic ensemble.
Still, to get you in the groove for this season’s hottest trends, discover the women of Instagram who rock the layered look. Their original and chic styles will give you expert inspiration of how to style layered jewellery. Prepare yourself… with style this hot, you’re bound to feel a little envious...
Eva Chen (@evachen212)
Layered bangles is the original layering trend. Think 1970s. Woodstock festival. Wooden bangles stacked up the arms of the psychedelic hipsters who channeled authentic style. Well guess what… this trend is back (although with a little more refinement). Eva Chen demonstrates how you can look and feel chic with a selection of elegant bangles on your wrist. Bangles vary in texture and form, allowing for creative and playful jewellery ensembles. Eva enhances the sunny hue of her yellow dress with a selection of gold bangles. Timeless and elegant, the gold bangle will remain a jewellery box staple. For a intricate and statement piece, shop Murkani Jewellery’s Jaipur Bangle. Style alongside Black Betty Design’s Hooked Luna Bangle, because black and gold is always a winner. To top the look off, pair with a selection of the Unity Thick Bangles by Corinne Hamak. As a fashion influencer, writer, and mother, Eva Chen proves how you can always look stylish with key jewellery pieces. Her layering artistry extends to her incredible wardrobe too, so make sure you follow Eva for an expert lesson in styling.

Erica styles over a slogan tee with a bold red lip showing how simple style can speak volumes. Even ‘responsible adults’ can set the standards for superior accessorisation!

Patti Gibbons (@notdeadyetstyle)
First of all, Patti of @notdeadyetstyle should be followed for her radiant positivity alone. As a ‘sixty-something woman, wife, professional, auntie and crazy cat lady’, Patti’s positive and sunny philosophy is visible through her quirky and unapologetic style. She imbues vivacity into the words ‘stay fabulous’, showing how authentic style will always look on-trend. Patti reminds us that we should dress for ourselves. Dress to look good, but more importantly to feel good. Even so, she also sports the hottest trends. This image of her wearing two striking pendant necklaces certainly caught my eye on her feed. I remember my mother had an Egyptian mummy pendant necklace that she wore every day throughout my childhood (it now sits in my jewellery box - so shh!). A statement pendant is an item for you to treasure forever, so harness Patti’s style with the layered pendant look. Play with length and style with these three silver pendant necklaces. Of course, you can mix it up with silver and golds. But start with the basics with a colour theme, then you can get playful with your individual style.
