Layered-up

The art to layering is to making sure it doesn't make you appear bigger than you really are. Turns out, layering can actually complement your shape or help to create a shape you would like to be. I have borrowed some of these tips from Lauren Conrad who knows her layers.

  • Starting with a basic, lightweight top in either a solid, neutral or stripe is layering 101. Keep this under-layer fitted.
  • Your next layer should be a soft cardigan or sweater and if you feel like standing out, it's a chance to mix in a bold colour to give the outfit more depth. If you're wanting to blend in, choose a more neutral colour, but still try to keep it different to the tee underneath.
  • Next, grab your coat or jacket off the rack - and keep this colour basic.
  • If it's a little chilly outside, add a woollen scarf to keep snug. During the warmer months, try a lighter cotton scarf.
  • Add accessories are you are done!
  • Oh, and don't forgot some pants.
My personal suggestions for layering is to dare to be different and try layering a shirt over a skirt with a pull over and ankle boots. If you're feeling a little "baggy" - grab a belt to cinch in your waist. Also playing with different textures will help to break up the outfit.
