These Necklaces Go to Great Lengths to Up the Ante on Any Outfit

Thanks to Instagram, layering necklaces has become an art form. It usually involves piling on chains of different lengths. From chokers to pendants, it helps give that coveted layered look a little more oomph. While we’re all for multiple strands with multiple drops, this spring (and summer) we’re favoring extra long necklaces. Whether you style them with other trinkets is totally up to you.

Why go long? There’s something so charming about a necklace so long it sways back and forth while you walk. And there’s a style for every kind of statement you’re looking to make. Desiring a dainty take? Lariats with simple accents can be worn day or night. Want to make more of an impression? Try a long chain boasting a bold charm.

Want to flaunt that layered look but only have enough coin for one necklace? It’s simple. Opt for an epically long pick, like Tory Burch’s wrap-worthy option.

Here are our favorite extra long necklaces of the season.
