What The Pros Know About Layering Clothes

INF4157Layering your clothes can look classy and stylish when done right. It is also practical for lots of different situations. Read on to see how you can make layering work for you. When layering, try to select clothes that are made of different fabrics and textures. This adds more interest to the overall look. Choose fabrics such as cotton, denim, jersey and velvet. You can also layer different colours and patterns. Or stick to the same colour but in different tones.

The first layer can consist of leggings, tights or even a pair of jeans. On top wear a camisole top or a fitted t shirt or you could wear both if the weather is extra cold. Layer a close fitting t shirt over your camisole. Something with some stretch will be the most flattering because you will be wearing at least a couple more layers over it and do not want to appear too bulky. Then you can add a long sleeved t shirt, make sure this does not keep pulling up over your bottom layers as you want to keep a slim profile. On top wear a long sleeveless dress to get one look. Or wear a shorter dress or a long tunic to get another look. If the weather is cold you can also add chunky cardigans to these looks. Accessorize with scarves and hats.

Another layer look would be to wear leggings or tights at the bottom with some long boots. Then add a long skirt on the bottom half. On the top wear a full sleeve top underneath with a short sleeve jacket or a short sleeve cardigan. Or you could wear a long sleeved blouse with a sleeveless jumper.
