Celebrities, models, and influencers are all madly in love with their layered gold necklaces. Everyone who follows the latest style trends has surely noticed it. But what makes gold layered necklaces so popular? No-one knows. However, it cannot be denied that they look superb.
What is a layered necklace? Gold layered necklaces are a set of two or more delicate gold chains of different lengths. The number of chains varies, but the most popular styles are created with three to five chains. Some chains, if not all, feature one or more pendants. The shortest chain can be as short as a choker, and the longest chain normally falls at the top of the bust. The style of layered necklaces is usually simple and minimalistic, and the desired volume is created by the number and thickness of layers. Layered necklaces are very versatile and can be worn on any occasion and with any outfit.
Because they are so effortless, layered necklaces are also ideal for those who don't consider having the perfect sense of style. If you don't think of yourself as the trendiest woman, you can take an easy step towards a trendy outlook just by wearing a gold layered necklace. At best, layered necklaces are trendy, effortless, affordable, and what's best, can take your outfit up like 1000 levels.

10. Layered choker necklace
Some people love chokers over regular or long necklaces. Chokers, as well as any necklaces, can be layered to obtain the trendy layered look. Since the length of a choker can't vary as much as a length of a necklace (too long, they wouldn't be chokers any more, duh), two to three choker layers are optimal.
