Pile It On: The Art of Layering
Cold, hot, cold, hot, cold, hot. The daily scenario we face when the air outside dips to chilly and the furnace inside rises to stifling.
So how’s a fashion maven to successfully dress in layers without looking like the Michelin Man one minute and Malibu Barbie the next? One word: artfully.
Layering from the inside out is always key. Your foundation is your outfit. From the initial look comes the middle layer, then outer.
Step one: determine the day’s look and agenda.
Step two: determine your mood. Are you going to layer playful prints or punchy colors? Are you layering tonal neutrals or black on black?
Step three: Pile it on. If you’re seasoned cold climate-teer, you will no doubt have several outerwear options. From basic black, to fun and frisky, knits and ponchos and/or blazers, to puffers the final layer should whenever possible be the icing on the ‘layering’ cake.
