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!
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.
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. Let’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.
