Feels like Spring one day. Feels like Winter another day. Blah, blah, blah. You’re not the only one suffering from jacket confusion every time you’re walking out the door. We feel your pain and assure you that layering will relieve you from your outerwear blues. The key to layering like a pro is finding lightweight items that can be worn on top of one another without making you look like you’ve put on 5 pounds. Think light sweaters, leather and faux fur pieces such as vests and jackets. Also, anoraks and parkas, are always great layering pieces.
A great way to Spring your look forward is by adding a pop of bright color. For this ensemble I started my layered look with a lightweight orange sweater. Then I layered one of my favorite pieces for Spring, the very universal and versatile, denim vest. What’s so great about a denim vest is that it can be styled so many different ways and never goes out of style. It also adds textured to the complete look and helps break up the layers. As the final layer I went with a light faux fur jacket, which gives the outfit a luxe look and feel. The advantage of layering is that you don’t really have to worry about how cold or hot it is or how drastic the weather drops or increases throughout the day. You can remove the pieces as needed as still look super chic.
Whatever you do, don’t take layering too seriously, experiment with pieces you already own until you land on a look that works for you!
