How to Layer Necklaces to Complement Your Bikini

Tricks for Layering Gold Necklaces to make your swimsuit standout

There is nothing quite like delicate gold jewelry to complement tan skin and accessorize a cute bikini.  Layering multiple necklaces can add detail and sophistication to a simple and effortless swimwear top whereas a single elegant gold necklace can be the classic statement piece to complete a detailed swimsuit.

The Deep V Neckline - Layer It Up 

A deep V neckline on a one piece or bikini top is accentuated and complemented with multiple layered necklaces and larger pendants.  

Varying Lengths is Key

Shop Corsica Halo Crystal Moonstone Necklace, $59

The more simple the design of the bikini top, the more layering to be done.  Think classic triangle bikini top and solid prints.  Lengths of chains to look for are 14" for a choker, 16" to lay on the collar bone, and 18" to 20" to hit mid chest.  Chain extenders make for an easy and affordable way to change up the length of necklaces you already have.
