The Cool-Girl Guide to Layering Your Jewelry

Jun 24 2014 - 3:00pm

So minimalist and modern, you might never guess that Alana Blank's jewelry line was inspired by the overstuffed jewelry boxes of her grandmother Phyllis and her aunt Rosie. But that was the inception for the cool-girl line Phyllis & Rosie, whose debut collection is all about effortless, subtle appeal — the kind we want to steal from street style stars and celebrities alike.

Not surprisingly, Phyllis & Rosie has already attracted a celeb fan base. Alana's pieces have been worn by Anna Kendrick [1] and Nina Dobrev [2], for starters, style setters who gravitate toward the lineup's wearability and delicate gold and silver pieces. As with any great collection, it's not just about individual pieces but about how they all come together. That's the real beauty of Phyllis & Rosie — the pieces look even better layered up and styled together, the way Alana intends you to wear them. So, who better to take jewelry styling lessons from than the designer herself? Naturally, she knows how to stack an arm party or layer necklaces like a pro. Cruise through Alana's foolproof tips and tricks for getting the cool-girl jewelry look just right. Then, peruse her Instagram diary to see the looks in action — and of course, click over to Phyllis & Rosie [3] to shop the collection ($40-$295).
