When it comes to accessorizing, there’s a time and a place for chunky chokers and bold bangles. And with the rise of fine, layered jewelry on spring 2015 runways – now is not it. Nestled somewhere between oversized retro hoops and Chanel’s prominent slogan bracelets, dainty pendants and thin chains made a modest statement at Versace and Saint Laurent, while seashell-inspired rings lined up asymmetrically along fingers at Valentino. Multiple piercings stacked alongside one another on models’ earlobes at Dior confirmed our newfound love of this carefully curated layering technique.
Jewelry layering is a chic way to add a subtle hint of shine to your look, but we admit, it isn’t always easy (more bling = more problems). It’s a detailed art form that requires an understanding of the big picture (and the ability to problem solve when all of your necklaces become tangled into one).
That’s where Gilding The Lily comes in to show us how it’s done. The Toronto-based store carries jewelry designs by Jacquie Aiche, Gara Danielle, Rona Pfeiffer, Carbon and Hyde, and Smith + Mara, along with special housewares like throw pillows, handbags and more.
