The best thing about fall (besides pumpkin-spiced everything) is layering. When I am in the thick of mid-July heat, there is nothing I crave more then 55-degree days where I can dress myself three layers deep.
This Fashionista clearly shares my fondness for layers as she takes on fall in style. From her sweater over her dress to wearing socks under boots, she understands that there is strategy to layering.
First, start with a great base. This Fashionista opted for a floral silk dress. Not only is it a great lightweight garment, but it is also an ideal way to take your summer dresses into fall. Talk about two-for-one!
Next, throw on a lightweight sweater or cardigan. Crew-neck sweatshirts are all the rage this fall. This Fashionista got on board with this sportswear trend as well as fall’s hottest color: navy. Navy is black’s chicer, more autumn-appropriate sister.
Finally, top off the layering look with the perfect mid-weight coat. The trench coat has always been a favorite option among Fashionistas. This Fashionista’s coat is a modern take on the trench; mixing elements of this classic style with the edgier military-inspired trend. The olive-tan color of the coat stays true to the overall look’s color palette and is the preverbal cherry on the top of this standout ensemble.
This week, add some layers to your everyday look. Follow in this Fashionista’s footsteps a build a cohesive and fashion-forward outfit perfect for the season
