Clothes over clothes? Yes, if done right, layering can instantly up your look! When it comes to getting dressed during the summer, you can just look to the season’s natural breezy vibes to inspire your daily looks. But with winter and fall approaching, you can’t help but get excited for the fresh outfit ideas and layering opportunities the new season brings. From oversized blazers and modernized outerwear trends to cosy knits and sweater dresses, there is much to play with.
5 Tips To Master The Art Of Layering
1. The Power Of The Suit
You can never go wrong with a well-tailored suiting option; whether you wear a set or DIY with separates, keep the look effortless with a slouchy white tucked-in tee underneath your jacket. You can wear a blazer over a dress or use jeans and a plain t-shirt, everything works. However, keep in mind the colour combinations.
2. Magic Of The White Shirt
The versatility of a crisp white button-down knows no bounds. Layer it beneath a sweater vest—or even a bustier—for a creative outfit with a fun twist. You can combine it with jeans or pants. A white classic shirt can create a casual and work look easily! You can accessorise your office look with a tie and a handbag. For a casual date look, style it with funky jewellery.

3. Play Around With Sweater Vests
The sweater vest is the new fashion trend for the fall and winter seasons! The sweater vest allows you to have fun with statement sleeves and different collars. You can wear over a classic plaid or solid button-down, as it keeps the look polished yet adds more of a laid back feel.
4. Classy Blue Ripped Denim Jeans
You can combine this single piece with multiple others and create thousands of new outfits! Pair it with a white shirt and put on a black shrug or overcoat and you’ll get an instantly gorgeous outfit (that is also effortless)! When it comes to denim, you can also use t-shirts, crop tops, blazers, ponchos and jackets.

5. Perfect Outer Layer
For the outer layer, any type of coat, jacket, trench, poncho, cape, shawl or even a vest can work. Obviously, this will be the most exposed piece and the wrap that ties all your other layers together. Think about the length of your outerwear in relation to all of the other clothing. Going longer is the typical route, but a crop jacket may work best with your other pieces.
Create fun and bold outfits by using your favourite pieces of clothing and mix-match! There’s really no end to the number of combinations you can create and it’s a great way to get excited about your wardrobe again. And there’s no better way to stay warm this fall and winter! So, experiment and find what your aesthetic is.
