STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Layer It Up

April 13th, 2015 at 2:00am

No matter the season, my favorite style advice is to layer. When referring to layering, the phrase “the more the better” cannot be more true. Any Fashionista knows that there is nothing more fun than to just keep on piling on the layers. Why wear a dress when you can wear pants under the dress, a sweater over the dress and then a jacket on top of that? Some may call it excessive, but I call it mega-chic.

This Fashionista knows what is up with this styling technique. Her outfit is such a great look for really any occasion. Whether you are going to class, out for lunch with friends or have a day of errands, you can’t go wrong with a layered look. So let’s di ssect this outfit! Her base layer is a black sheer button-down with a white print. On top of that, she adds an off-white cable knit sweater. She throws on this denim jacket that has been quite the trend right now, over it. To really accentuate the layered look, she rolls up the sleeves of the top two layers. She pairs some easy skinny jeans that are a little cuffed at the bottom. On her feet, she goes with these leather rustic brown heel booties. To complete the look, she finishes it off with some white and orange beaded earrings that bring in some color contrast.

When you have an outfit in need of a little extra spruce, layering is always the key. This styling technique can take you through all of the seasons. Don’t think that you have to do all your experimenting with this look before the warm weather hits. Just use lightweight fabrics in the warmer weather to continue your rad layered looks.

What is your STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK? “As we transition into spring, I try to layer my looks as much as possible so I’m still warm, but I also don’t have to resort to my winter jacket.”
