STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Playing with Layers

With the obvious winter months among us, layering seems to be our best option. It can get difficult to maintain your usual chicness while still trying to bundle up for the cold. This is where layering comes in. Mixing different textures and prints gives the outfit a whole new dimension. This Fashionista proves that layering can be fun. Who says you can’t wear camouflage and faux fur at the same time? Not me!

Layering is a sneaky way to throw all your favorite pieces together in one outfit, with style and class, of course. This outfits works because of its minimalist approach to bringing different trends together. Fashion is all about how you pull the outfit together and make it unique. Karl Lagerfeld once said, “I want everyone to wear what they want and mix it in their own way.” This outfit could work without the vest, but that’s the controversial aspect of mixing pieces in your own way.

The casual boyfriend jeans and white T-shirt gives us a lot of room to experiment. This Fashionista added the perfect amount of texture to spice up the grungy jeans and jacket. The black vest and black shoes tie together perfectly and tone down the adventurous camouflage print. When layering, it’s important to work with some of the same colors so your outfit comes together in the end.
