Delicate layered necklaces are all the rage this season and we can’t get enough of them. The styles range from simple and sleek to slightly more detailed looks with pendants and gemstones. What we love most about this trend is that it incorporates a minimalist look that is still very fashion forward. Its a fun, flirty, and feminine trend that anyone can wear. Even those of us who do not like to wear jewelry on a daily basis. A simple chain with a pendant can finish off any outfit. This look can go from casual to dressy and from day to night.
