The Art Of Light Layering

The Fall/Winter season is all about correct layering. December is almost here and the winds have started to get cold in the evening. Light layering is what the weather demands right now, and SC has a few tips on how to do it right!

The fashion bloggers and stylists world-over seem obsessed with the layered look. Fall streetstyle is overflowing with outfits that feature the “shirt over shirt” trend and other light layering techniques that guarantee a super-stylish look. Here are a few that will definitely make you want to give layering a try!





When trying out this trend, it’s advisable to pick the outermost layer a size larger so that it doesn’t seem like it’s too tight. Try pairing a classic shift dress with a shrug or a nice cardigan and put a sleek belt on it. Add on a scarf as a third layer to complete the look. This layered look can be elegant if worn with the right accessories, or preppy if worn with a cool pair of sneakers!

Pull a total Blair Waldorf and throw some bright red into your outfit! Wear a crisp shirt open over a cropped tee and throw on a jacket or coat over it.

This one is pretty basic, but sure works everytime! A plaid or flannel shirt worn over a funky tee… things don’t get more casual or cooler than this! You can also try wearing a shirt over another shirt, keeping the outer one unbuttoned. Let loose your imagination and mix ‘n match some prints together for different layers.
