how to layer necklaces

i stumbled upon this image on the j.crew blog and was immediately drawn to how perfectly molly styled j.crew's new "beaded rose" necklace. adding a few gold chains and vintage art-deco crystals helps the whimsical necklace  stand out, but also helps the statement piece feel easy and effortless. an extra-bold necklace can overpower a simple outfit like this, but piling on jewels and chains, while counter-intuitive, actually helps the whole look feel more relaxed. 

this photo is perhaps the best example ever for layering necklaces, which is often easier said than done. i put together a step-by-step guide and included plenty of different pieces to to help you get the look, too.
