It’s that time of year, when you need to dress for the cold but you don’t want to feel bulky. Layering is the best way to stay warm while not having to resort to feeling like the State Puff Marshmallow Man. Here are some key tips on how to layer so you flatter, not hide your figure.
First you need to start somewhere with your layering and where you start should fit you snugly, not too tight, but snug so the layers you put on top will also skim your figure silhouette. This will compliment your shape and not add any unnecessary bulk. I’ve recently discovered and fallen in love with the Hard Tail Long Skinny Tee. It’s buttery soft and long enough that it will peek out of any top layers your choose.
POP your layered Hard Tail Skinny Tee under another top that skims your figure. I love the POP of color next to the neutral of this QSW pullover. Don’t forget The Bow… can’t go wrong with chevron. This Mishakaudi necklace would go with anything. And I’ve already started obsessing about these Prairie Underground Love Shack Leggings. I mean this is how comfort should look… flattering, interesting and fun.
Your bottom layer doesn’t always have to be hidden for the most part. Let your Hard Tail Skinny Tee make a statement. We all love a cute vest and this QSW Vest is so flattering since it’s cut on the curve to either compliment or give your sides shape and the cut is cropped which will make your legs look longer and your waist look teeny tiny, especially when you pair it with an equally buttery soft knit pant like these Bailey 44 flared leg.
Your layering doesn’t have to be just under or over pants. Rock a Hard Tail Long Skinny Tee under a dress like this Prairie Underground Harmonia Dress. Not only will it add warmth but layering adds a dimension of style that makes any one simple piece look more dynamic and interesting. See how the kick of onyx under this beautiful rosy red just adds to the whole look. Just remember that your bottom most layer should lay flat and not stop where it can cause bunching or distraction from how the outer most layer lays.
But for me, I like to keep it simple and that means throwing one of these ‘want to live in’ layering tees under a simple blazer. A neutral, like this black, could be great if you’re wearing the ‘IT’ color of spring in this Emerald Tart Blazer. But don’t be afraid to POP a purple or coral color with emerald either! Color next to your face will only do you good. That is, if it’s colors that flatter you. I promise!
