1. All About the Layers
“I like to mix textures and lengths while keeping the color the same,” explains model and social media star Madi Teeuws, citing her current go-to combination as a snake chain with a dainty pendant necklace.
Layered necklaces are a great tool for lending individuality to your fashion persona. Pile on a few of your cherished gems and introduce them to a new addition—or two. Sexy lariats, weightier links, delicate barely-there strands… switch it up as multi-dimensional pairings look especially effortless.
Or cheat (we won’t tell) and try a pre-layered piece, such as this shimmery diamond double chain necklace.
2. Game of Hoops
Take it from Hannah Mussette, the model and YouTuber who is rarely spotted on her feeds with bare earlobes. “I love hoops because they are simple, but add a little something to whatever I’m wearing,” she shares. “I also love them because they go with every outfit, so I could wear hoops to the gym or a girls night out.”
Hoop earrings are a jewelry box mainstay and designers constantly serve up fresh iterations (like this edgy zig zag style). And with good reason—the shape frames and flatters the face. Whether you prefer your pair chunky and oversized, full pavé or dainty with diamond drops, they complement every aesthetic.
3. Everyday Diamonds
Your status may still be WFH in head-to-toe athleisure, but embracing some sparkle breathes life into your routine and keeps things fun. It’s time to rewrite the rules on how and when to wear diamonds—they don’t require your finest gown and a special occasion.
A timeless solitaire pendant necklace, gleaming tennis bracelet, or thin pavé band are perfect starter pieces that offer infinite versatility. The best part? Some of the most wearable pieces now come minus the sticker shock.
“Jewelry, to me, is meant to enhance natural beauty by bringing subtle attention to your features,” says Madi. “My favorite way to incorporate it into my everyday life is by wearing pieces that I can put on first thing in the morning (or even sleep in), then to a workout and my daily activities, and [into the] night.”
4. Mix, Match, Stack
As lifestyle and fashion influencer Olivia Caputo declares, “For rings, I feel like you can’t even go wrong… the more the merrier!”
Let your ring stacks tell your story. Pair varying widths, designs, and metal finishes for visual interest. Even if your schedule only includes replying to emails before sneaking in a quick yoga session, catching a glimpse of your adorned hand throughout the day is guaranteed to make you smile.
5. Throw an Ear Party
“One other trend that I am excited about is mismatched earrings,” enthuses Olivia. “I never thought I would ever wear two different earrings on my earlobes, but I am loving that look.”
The “more is more” mentality can also apply to your earring game. If you have multiple piercings, experiment with different combinations—studs, drops, hoops, ear cuffs—to find your curated arrangement. For an unexpected hit, don’t be afraid to get creative.
It’s simple math: More piercings equal more jewelry. And who can argue with that?
