1. Layering with a basic turtleneck
I've found that layering with a basic turtleneck is the most simple way to layer. You can throw it under a sweater, an embellished tank, and even under a button up. I like J.Crew's tissue turtlenecks because they add an extra layer without all the bulk. To mix it up, try layering with a printed turtleneck to add some more visual interest.
2. Layering with a button-up.
Because I like to stay modest, I feel like I am constantly wearing cardigans, cardigans, and more cardigans. Seriously, I get so sick of it. That's why recently I started wearing my button-up tops under my sleeveless shirts. It's a new alternative to the stuffy-old cardigan and it's also super chic... Now that's what we call a win-win.
3. Layering with necklaces.
This is one of my favorite ways to layer. Layering necklaces, bracelets, or any other jewelry on top of each other. When doing this, definitely don't be afraid to mix metals when layering jewelry. My one rule here is to always keep it simple everywhere else when going heavy on the metal.
4. Layering with prints.
If you live in a warmer climate, first of all, I'm jealous. Second, layering can be difficult because who wants to be walking around sweating with 4,293 layers on? If this is you, try layering with different prints. Just make sure the different prints you're wearing share at least one common color. Like my outfit here shares the common color of navy.
5. Layering with color.
This is again good for those of you in warmer climates. I love layering bright colors year round. I've found the easiest way to do this is through statement necklaces (like the ever so popular bubble necklace!) I try to keep my mixing and layering of colors down to 3-4 colors. I can imagine that any more than that might be a little...crazy!I hope that was helpful to you ladies! Come join me over at The Lookbook for more style tips and tricks!
