Epic Proportions: How to Nail Modern Layering


Once the weather starts to cool down and fall is officially under way, we move our efforts to piling on endless layers to keep us warm all autumn long. But just because the number of pieces we wear increases shouldn’t mean our style decreases. So how do you shine when it comes to fall layering? It’s all about portion control (read: knowing when to sport longer layers vs. more fitted or shorter pieces). For instance, if you’re wearing a more voluminous maxi dress, keep your top underneath fitted and vice versa. If you prefer more relaxed silhouettes, opt for this simple formula of lengthened layers – extra long tunics atop floor sweeping flares. And if you’re in the mood to really nail this season’s top trends (Velvet camisoles! Pleated skirts! Off-the-shoulder tops!), then go for the gold and layer all three together for the quintessential fashion trifecta. Pro tip – portions should play off each other in a complementary way, not contradict or create anything short of an attention-grabbing moment. Because after all this expert layering, you’re on your way to “it” girl status.
