Now that I've finally pulled all the chunky sweaters out from the back of my closet, I've been trying to find ways to step them up without looking too dowdy. Luckily, layering necklaces is still in and a pop of gold or silver against a black turtleneck always looks chic. (Though TBH, The Rock still does it best.) One of the latest trends I've noticed around is how many people seem to be wearing initial necklaces and honestly, I'm totally convinced. It didn't take much though, since I'm a sucker for monogramming, so bring it on.

If you happened to trawl through the street style photographs from fashion week, you might have noticed a number of people flaunting their favourite letters. There's one beauty in particular that has been racking up the love from Celine — pictured below on blogger Lolita Mas — which has since trickled down to the high street. There's a few more affordable pieces that have since taken inspiration from it, with the likes of River Island and Urban Outfitters riffing off of Celine's iconic necklace. Others like Anthropologie and Missoma have brought personalisation to another big jewellery trend — coin necklaces — with their daintier pieces which are ideal for layering.

Darling & Gold's sweet art deco alphabet necklaces are ones you might have seen in the news, as Kylie Jenner opted for layering six of them to spell out her daughter's name: Stormi. It's a pretty cute idea, even if my poor neck is already exhausted thinking of how heavy all those chains are.

I've put together a range of jewellery bits below if you're thinking about snagging one of your own, whether you're looking for a budget-friendly upgrade or really want to commit to the cause. Check it all out below.
