How to Master the Art of Layering

Layering is no easy task. When an outfit is layered poorly, clothes can appear ill-fitting and sloppy. A well-layered look can be achieved through the pairing of a simple, lightweight top with a bold pullover. 

Complete the look with a jacket or coat in a basic color and you’re ready to head out the door. Incorporating jewelry and accessories give an added polished to the ensemble.

If picking pieces out of your closet is to much work we’ve put together some ready made, layered ideas to try out. 

For a daring look, try pairing a dress with a striped sweater or play it safe with colored jeans paired with an oxford shirt and blazer.
