This article from Cosmopolian talks about 8 different ways to layer that you may not have thought of! 

8 Unexpected Ways to Layer Your Jewelry Like a Pro
Why wear one piece when you can wear them all?

Like most fashion-loving people, you probably have an entire drawer or wall devoted to accessorizing. You also probably wear the same ring, necklace, and bangle day in and day out because hey — you're a busy person, and reaching for your tried and true pieces just makes things so much easier.

News flash: You can get way more mileage out of your jewelry trove if you know how to layer your pieces. Here are eight stylist-approved tricks you need to know.

1. Wear heavy and dainty pieces at the same time.
Don't save that flashy necklace for a special occasion — go ahead and pair it with your simpler go-to pieces to make a statement all day, every day.

2. Use multiple necklaces in the same metal to break up a solid-colored top.
Colorblocking works in many ways. 

3. Don't worry about spacing your necklaces evenly — let them fall where they may.
If off-duty supermodels have taught us anything, looking a little undone adds extra cool to any look. (Tip: Wearing some necklaces with pendants will help your chains stay untangled.)

4. Embrace wrap bracelets.
Each one takes up a good amount of arm space, making them a great way to boldly layer without actually wearing a ton of jewelry.

5. Don't choose between necklaces or bracelets — layer both.
The key is choosing the same layering style for your neck and arms: If you're going bold on your neck game, do the same on your arms.

6. Throw a hand party, and invite rings of all different shapes and sizes.
Keep the rest of your look simple so your hands can really steal the spotlight.

7. Don't be afraid to mix masculine and feminine pieces.
A chunky chain can make your more delicate accessories pop even more.

8. When it comes to mixing materials – just do it.
Gems, metals, leathers, tassels: When in doubt, wear all your favorite pieces at once to create a unique look that's totally personalized.
