It’s that awkward period between seasons right now where you’re never quite sure what to wear. Is it hot? Is it cold? Who knows. It is during these confusing times of the year when layering is absolutely key. Layering is not only functional, but the potential mix of patterns and fabrics can give your outfit an extra little necessary kick.
This Fashionista layered up in preparation for the temperamental spring weather. Her bottom layer consists of a simple cropped tee, her second layer is an always stylish chambray shirt and her third layer is a patterned red and beige knit cardigan. She has covered all of the weather bases and is ready for whatever crazy weather will come her way. Whether it’s super hot, super cold or just right, she’s ready for it.
Not only is her layering a good spring precaution to take but it also allows for her to mix and match patterns and styles. Her simple cropped top paired with her black denim shorts and combat boots provide a neutral base for her to play around with her layers. A chambray shirt is always a great staple piece to include in any spring outfit. It provides just enough warmth, but the light colored denim is a reminder that the sun is on its way. It also adds a fun variation of fabric into any outfit. The big cozy knit that this Fashionista has chucked on top is where most of the action is happening in the outfit. However, by allowing the other layers to peak out the sweater doesn’t entirely dominate the rest of the look.
The layering look is easy to achieve. Of course, you can’t go too overboard with crazy colors, but if you include one neutral piece, one interestingly textured piece, and one patterned piece then you can infuse your outfit with that extra little bit of fun.
