    #HeyjowLooks: Lariat Looks For Every Mood

    The long lariat necklace is a versatile piece - a chameleon of sorts that can appeal to both minimalists and maximalists. 

    Our lariats usually come with an adjustable front toggle lock - and getting one with a length of 27" allows you to have different looks just by altering the length.

    A plain dress or top with a low V-neckline can go well with a plain chain lariat. Aside from adjusting the length in the front, you can try wearing it with the lock at the back for a 'body jewelry' effect, as a bracelet and even as a belt (see video below!).

    If you're in a flamboyant mood, layer your lariat with a few short necklaces that come in a pop of color or has interesting pendants.

    Summer Layering Inspo: Maximalist Style with Five Layers + Statement Earrings

    If you’ve been following us for a while, you’re probably familiar with our signature layering pieces. Usually made of 2 and 3 necklace, our pre-layered sets are the perfect way to add some flair to a basic ensemble.

    Pieces from our Gold Coast Collection

    We’re in a maximalist mood these days and we tried mixing sets (and even added statement earrings to the mix) with Tin Magsaysay-Matic, one of the co-founders of modern Filipino restaurant Locavore.

    We shot Tin at Locavore's tropical-inspired branch in S Maison for her Style Stories feature

    Tin is a big fan of layering necklaces. “What I love about layering necklaces is I’m able to combine pieces that have sentimental value like jewelry from loved ones with pieces I’ve collected over the years.”

    “It can instantly spice up an outfit and I usually wear very basic clothes so jewelry makes the look less basic,” she added. We mixed two of our sets, the Solita and Sidra, with Tin’s own medallion necklace for the shoot – that’s a total of 5 necklaces!

    We also added the Antigua turquoise earrings for a pop of color. The leaf details  mimicked the frills of her playsuit, which made the entire look cohesive and definitely fun!

    Layering 102: How To Wear The Lariat

    If you've gotten the basics of layering down, it's time to learn another trick: how to wear the lariat. 

    Lariats are Y-necklaces that appeal to the modern minimalist because of it's clean and linear look. Heyjow lariats come in a variety of forms: ones with a toggle lock front closure, ones with a long drop chain, and ones that are embellished with crystals or pendants.  

    Heyjow lariats come in 3 different variations

    Lariats with a front closure can be easily adjusted to the length you're comfortable with. 

    Sabria, Valmar and Darthi lariats from the V Holiday collection

    Shorter lariats in 14" or 16" can be easily layered with longer pieces with more ornate details or another type of accessory such as statement earrings.

    The Yoana (18")  front closure lariat paired with the Jiera (22")  rod necklace

    Longer front closure pieces can be paired with a short charm necklace. Narrow down your choice with one that mimics the circular shape of the toggle lock.

    Lariats with a long drop chain are suitable for V-neck tops. Whether it's a deep V-neck blazer or a conservative sweater, the subtle fringe effect adds a dainty yet sophisticated touch.

    Taking it a notch higher are lariats embellished with crystals or pendants.

    Lastly, layering a lariat with another lariat is definitely doable. Just make sure there is enough spacing between them and that they complement and not overpower each other.
