It’s finally starting to feel like Fall, so I have no choice but to dress the part. Layering is naturally not my jam because I am an island girl at heart. I’m that person who would just throw on my coat or jacket with just a top and pants on. I actually only started wearing scarves and winter head gear about four years ago. Plus I’m starting to appreciate pantyhose and what they can do for your legs. I may not be an expert at layering, but I have learnt some pretty simple tricks over the years that will not only keep you warm, but also looking stylish all season. Here are three simple layering rules to incorporate into your Fall dressing.
Play With Proportions
Chunky knits and skinny bottoms are a great combo for the cooler months. Because you don’t want to look bulky from head to toe, the skinny bottom is a great way to add length. Plus skinny bottoms looks best tucked inside boots which will give you a clean and polished look.
This is my favourite way to layer during the cooler months. You can be wearing up to five pieces of clothing in one look, so the last thing you want to think about is how to coordinate your colours. This is where monochrome comes to the rescue! Choose one colour and wear different shades of that one colour. Gray is a good colour to test this trick with because there are so many shades of gray.
Mix and Match
Don’t be afraid to mix and match different textures and materials. In this look you can see that I’m wearing a leather jacket underneath a simple gray coat. Not only does this keep me warm, but it also adds depth and a bit of edge to my look. I paired this with a lighter gray skinny jeans and finished the look with nude suede ankle boots.
