Layering clothes can be quite challenging.. To be honest Fall & Winter are the least favorite seasons of mine during the year.. However, the major perk of the colder seasons is that you get to play more with layering!
-Off The Shoulder Blouse with Turtleneck- Maybe you have lots of Spring blouses that stay in your closet during the winter. Here’s a way of making it winter friendly! Or take a tip from Jennifer Aniston (as Rachel Green on Friends), where she paired an off the shoulder blouse with a man’s tie. Why not have that as an accent to your turtleneck? No one else would be wearing it. Stand out from the crowd!
-Turtleneck Underneath a Button Down Shirt- Of course you could wear a turtleneck with a button down shirt as well! Why not make it more fun & wear contrast colors or prints? And I think this is a great opportunity to utilize some statement jewelry! I think a necklace is quite lovely, on top of the turtleneck (but peeking out from underneath the shirt); but earrings or a brooch would look lovely as well!
-Sweater with Lace Skirt / Dress– Why keep the lace skirt / dress only for the warmer seasons? Bring it out of the closet & keep your legs warm with pantyhose / leggings!
-Button down Shirt with Strapless Top– I’ve done variations of this look: I have worn it with a fitted turtleneck on the inside (instead of a shirt); on the outside I’ve worn strapless tops, bustiers, or corsets. Sometimes you can find twofers (like the 2nd pic) where it’s like 2 garments in 1. Twofers I find make lives easier & instead of layering, are less bulky. And who says that your strapless tops are only for the summer?
-Dress with Jeans- Another opportunity to bring more prints into the Fall! Of course, you need to find a dress that matches appropriately with your jeans. Personally I think a shirt dress goes best with dress / jean combo. Tip: Go with skinny jeans.
-Button Down Shirt, with Sweater Underneath A Blazer / Vest- Of course you need to try on this look first (before stepping out) to see if your pieces match proportionally. This is a great look for those really chilly days; & you could accent it with whatever accessories you choose!
-Turtleneck with A Cami On Top- Turtlenecks by themselves, are well, boring. Dress them up with a cami that you would normally wear during the summer! Even better if it’s colorful / printed!
-Skinny Jeans with High Boots- Did you think that your tall boots were for dresses only? Of course not! If you’re not a jeans type of a person, you could always wear this look with leggings instead. Tip: I’ve worn tall boots, nude leggings with a dress (to give the illusion of bare legs, not exactly like the pic above, but just to give you an idea) when in reality I’m actually quite covered up & warm!
-Shirt / Blouse Underneath A Dress- I mentioned in an article before How To Layer Your Clothes: Incorporating Your Spring Clothes Into Your Winter Wardrobe.. & Still Look Chic!, that you could wear a turtleneck underneath a dress to utilize them in the winter. Using the same concept, you could wear a shirt / blouse underneath a dress as well! Fashion challenge: Try the mixing print trend & wear them in 2 different prints!
-A Sweater / Jacket Over A Peplum Top- I love peplums. What is a peplum by the way? It’s a flared flounce that starts usually right at the waistline. And they come in all different kinds of garments: tops, skirts, & dresses. And I find them really flattering. You could take a peplum top & throw a sweater on top (ideally a crop top sweater), or just wear it underneath a jacket.
-Motorcycle Jacket Over A Dress- Quite often in fashion we simply call them ‘moto jackets’: which was originally designed for men, looks quite flattering on women! Pair it with a dress, & accessorize it however you’d like!
-Jacket / Coat with Statement Belt
Sometimes jackets / coats come with a contrasting belt; but you don’t always need to stick to what’s given to you. And who says you can’t wear your belt on the outside? A lovely belt outside a plain coat is a lovely accent & cinches the waist, giving it a more flattering silhouette!
-Jacket with Vest / Sleeveless Coat On The Outside-
This could be a challenge to pull off. You could give yourself a more unique look, with a jacket on the inside, & an open vest / sleeveless coat on the outside. Tip: If you want to try this look, stick to a fitted jacket on the inside.
