How to Layer Like a Pro

by HULA , December 6, 2019

As the weather gets colder, it is tricky to know how to dress for the elements. The answer: layering! Layering offers a warm solution for chilly mornings and nights, while also allowing comfort for the warmer afternoons. It is not only functional but also incredibly chic. Check out some inspiration outfits below:

Ever thought that a double-outerwear look would look so effortless? A classic oversized trench plays down the formal button-down top and blazer is the perfect day to night ensemble. Pair some printed booties to add an element of fun to the outfit.

Layer your favourite slip with a button-down and cozy sweater to add a touch of sophistication. For the colder months, a large coat grounds the look while not appearing too heavy. The pop of colour in the bag makes the overall effect not too serious. This is ideal for brunch or other daytime activities.

A maxi dress is not always the first thing people tend to layer, however, the possibilities are endless with a sleeveless maxi. Try layering it with a bold print and a boxy blazer. In order to not lose your shape, belt the whole look to draw the eye to the waist (you do not want to get lost in all that fabric). Wearing a chunkier boot with the look makes it more daytime appropriate while also adding unexpected masculinity to contradict the femininity of the dress.
