How To Layer Like A Pro This Fall

My Declutter Story - The Face Of Style

Layering is essential during the fall. It’s freezing in the morning and warm by the afternoon. You need to be able to adjust your look through the day. Here are all my tips to layer up your style this fall!

Layering Checklist: All The Tips You Need To Layer Like A Pro This Fall

Start With a Light Fabric to Incorporate Texture and/or Print

Print will be easiest to add in a lighter fabric as you can layer under or over it, showing the print a little or a lot. I love using pieces like printed dresses and button-down tops for this layer.

Pile On Something Cozy

This can be a fine knit turtleneck underneath or a chunkier knit on top. This layer will be adding warmth to the look.

Mix Textures

This is where it depends on the outfit you are going for. I always like to mix at least two textures or fabrics when I am putting together an outfit. Here are a few of my favorites: Satin and sweater, sequin and denim, chiffon and corduroy, and (faux) leather and really anything.

Play with hemlines, lengths, and proportion

This is important to make sure you are seeing all the layers once you are finished layering. An example of this would be an oversized cropped sweater layered over a printed tunic-length satin top with some ankle-length faux leather pants.

Shoes can be a layer

Shoes are playing a huge part in the trends this season. Shoe options are the best they are have been in years. You can basically get any style shoes in any color you can think of. To create more dimension in your look, add a shoe that you can layer with the rest of the outfit. Letโ€™s use the example from above: add a pair of velvet thigh-high boots or patent ankle boots and you have two completely different looks.

    I love fall and all the long sleeves that come with it. I don’t know if it has to do with the fact that where I live we don’t get cool weather often, but I just love those chilly breezes.

      Yes! Fall is absolutely my favorite season! The leaves changing, the days getting cooler, and the feeling of this season make me feel all warm and fuzzy

    This was the perfect read with fall officially upon us. Being in LA, most days I layer rather then put on a jacket.

    I love these pieces. Unfortunately, it rarely gets cold enough to layer for Fall in Florida. I’m so very jealous.

      You can just layer a little bit ๐Ÿ™‚ Instead of three layers just throw on a jacket or a vest to add dimension to your look.

    I am a huge fan of layering! It allows me to mix up different outfits with the same pieces. New outfits with the same wardrobe is a great budget friendly tool!

      Yes! Nothing like finding a new way to layer or wear something. You get to shop your own closet.
