When it comes to the fall season, every wardrobe should consist of layering. Whether it’s wearing a chambray button-down underneath a sweater dress, or a baggy sweater paired with jewelry and a scarf — layering is essential. With the cold weather, layering will save you from freezing, while leaving you more fashion-forward than ever before. Fashion consultant, Miroslava Duma and Man Repeller’s Leandra Medine are two style icons who take full advantage of layering. These fabulous Fashionistas use layering to the best of their ability, but it’s the matter of continuing to look polished and very put together. I spotted this Fashionista taking full advantage of layering. She was looking fashion-forward and wore the most appropriate outfit for the fall weather.

How To: Sometimes layering can lead you to look too bulky or sloppy. To accomplish layering without looking sloppy, pair the top layers with more form-fitting bottoms. This fall is the calling for leather leggings and cargo pants, so finding the perfect pair of bottoms shouldn’t be too hard. Add a touch of femininity in the same way this Fashionista did by throwing on a belt, hat or piece of statement jewelry. To compete this look add a pop of color and you’ll look just as fabulous as this Fashionista!
