STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Layer It Up

Style Advice of the Week

Why wear one lovely piece when you could wear five? Add some new dimension to your look with tanks, chunky knits, and long-sleeves— all perfect for layering. Layering is nothing new for fall. It's one of the best ways to stay warm and chic at the same time! This is a great way to get more mileage from your spring and summer wardrobes. Make the most of what you have in your closet by layering different pieces each day. You might end up with a killer outfit that you didn't even realize you had! 

Everyone wears scarves in the colder season. Heavy scarves are great to layer over a coat, however, you can twist the heavy scarf with the light scarf you wore all spring and summer together. Or, you can wrap two summer scarves together to make them warmer and funkier. It's a little too chilly to wear your summer tanks, but there are tons of new ways to layer them! Try one under a cardigan, under a deep V-neck top, or over a girly blouse. You can easily transform your favorite summer shirt by putting it over a tee or try a tube top underneath in a contrasting color. Add a blazer to any of these layering combinations for an important meeting and un-layer for lunch with friends. This applies to sundresses, too. This fashion trend is all about new patterns. Try one under a solid layer – picture a leopard print top under a red sweater. It's all about light layers on top to avoid looking like you're traveling to Antarctica. Lastly—Keep those legs warm! Just because it's cold outside doesn't mean you can't show some leg – invest in a good pair of tights. They can be layered under any skirt, dress or even a pair of shorts. From opaque to patterned, tights are in. This season's floral tights are adorable and look great paired with a solid tunic or dress for a splash of fun. Intricate lace tights are a great way to add some edge to a black dress or skirt. Also, grab a pair of leg warmers and throw them on with any skirt or dress on those really cold days. Don't forget leggings. Wear them under a dress or extra-long top with knee-high boots.

This week’s Fashionista clearly understands the art of layering. She layers a printed tank top, adding an element of unexpectedness, to her solid cardigan and denim jacket. To top it off, she layers a gold patterned scarf and legwarmers. So, how will you layer your clothes?

STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Layer It Up

Uncategorized

This weather is unpredictable these days. One day you'll wake up to sunny and 50s. The next day rainy and freezing. Most college students – when they leave the dorm room, they leave for the whole day, so you've got to plan it all out. The key to not spending the day freezing or sweating is layering. This Fashionisto perfects the look of layering for a day in college.

First he adds a T-shirt, then adds a large gray sweatshirt. After that he adds a vest and a black scarf. He can easily remove any of the items to have a whole new look. To help with layering buy clothes in different sizes – some XL shirts and some tiny little jackets. It adds a dimension to your look while helping you stay comfortable all day in class.

Some great places to buy basics for layering are places such as American Apparel. Layering looks better with solids not patterns. If you want to add a pattern make sure you off set it with lots of solids – maybe even some darker colors. Patterns can look good together but not in many, many layers. This scarf is just like the Fashionisto's, and this puffy vest is also a great addition.

Hint: Dress for the day instead of having to go back and forth to your room. It saves a ton of time.
