When I got this great Gold Monogram Necklace from 9th & Elm I knew it would become a regular in my necklace layering lineup. But I figured I’d show you some examples of exactly how I plan on layering this great monogram necklace, to give you some ideas of your own. While kind of intimidating in terms of layering at first, the Gold Monogram Necklace is actually a great piece to add some interest to your look. So, here are four different ways to layer the trendy monogram necklace.
Bubble Necklace, Meet Gold Monogram Necklace
Perhaps the simplest way to layer a monogram necklace is to just add it in when you’re wearing your trusty bubble necklace. Bubble necklaces were huge for awhile, and chances are you have at least one. I have a white bubble necklace that looks like flowers (instead of being traditional bubbles) and it works beautifully with my monogram necklace.
As you can see, the monogram necklace adds something a little special to the tried-and-true bubble necklace, and it does it in such a way that the focus isn’t taken off your statement piece. It’s just some extra, personalized sparkle that would be great for a night out with the girls or to dress up a more casual, running errands, kind of look.
Light, Simple Layers
Another easy way to incorporate the Gold Monogram Necklace into layers is to stick with really light, short necklaces. This makes the monogram necklace more of a focal point. I went with a vintage short necklace and a slightly longer rose gold spiked necklace from H&M (available here). I kept it simple with just three layers, since when things are lighter, odd numbers are a little more visually interesting, and the monogram becomes the statement piece.
In case you’re wondering, my monogram necklace chain is 20″ long, which has proven to be a very nice length for layering with both short and long necklaces. This is a great casual look, or one that would work with a work outfit that calls for just a little bit of sparkle.
A Twist on the Classic Pearl Necklace
I have had this long pearl and chain layered necklace for quite some time now, and decided to re-introduce it to my wardrobe by layering it with my Gold Monogram Necklace. For a little bit of sparkle I added my Somervell Necklace from Stella & Dot (available here). The monogram necklace isn’t the focal point, but it adds some interesting texture to what might otherwise be an ordinary, simple look.
The monogram necklace, the pearls, and the crystals are all classic pieces, and when paired together they really take it up a notch. This is an easy look to dress up or down, and would look equally great with dress pants and a buttondown for work, or a little black dress for a special night out. I actually already wore this layered look, which I snapped a shot of here.
Layer Like a Rockstar
A post from me wouldn’t be complete without a rockstar look at layering even a classic necklace like the Gold Monogram Necklace. So I’ve layered it up with a spray painted set of heirloom rhinestones, my Syd Rocks necklace (available here), and my Stella & Dot Rebel Pendant (available here).
This is a great casual, fun look that’s perfect for a fun day or night out, though I’m totally planning on wearing this to work (when I don’t have a scarf around my neck constantly).
So there you have it. Four great, totally different ways to layer the Gold Monogram Necklace.
What do you think? Are you on board with the monogram necklace trend? If so, are you planning on rocking it on its own, or layering it up with pieces already in your jewelry box? Oh, and if you want your own Gold Monogram Necklace, you can customize one over at 9th & Elm (and for what it’s worth, I think necklaces like this would make lovely bridesmaid gifts, if you are looking for ideas).
