Tips On Layering Fall Outfits
Keep the under-layers more fitted.
To avoid creating a bulky look, minimize your layers. Do ensure that your under-layers fit nicely or are tailored so that they do not stick out or bulge. Then, you ought to keep the top pieces a bit loose so that the overall layering would look sleek and trim.
Length And Proportion
If you choose to wear several layers on top, balance it with slim bottoms. Pair it with a skinny-cut, tapered, or boot-cut jeans or pants or legging or tights. Leather leggings and jeans made a sleek and sexy look and infused a bit of chic urban style. Look for leather pieces this fall to add some edge to your look.
If you have a lot of volume on the top as well as on the bottom, a waist-cinching belt balances them out and finishes off the slenderizing look.
Mix And Match (Textures, Prints And Colors)
When styling a layered look, try incorporating a mix of textures, colors and prints. If your first layer is patterned, keep your second layer solid, or vice versa. Look at your body with a loving but critical eye, and use pattern and colors to bring up your best features.
You can also play with different textures among your layers. This will create dimension within your look, and will keep you from appearing, heavy and frumpy. Wearing layers with contrasting colors, materials, or textures also helped to provide visual interest and flair to an outfit.
This season, radiant jewel tones and wintry pastels are dominating the fashion palette. Pastels convey a feminine touch. However, if embracing the pastels isn’t your style, then combat it with a strong color.
Bold colors, including cobalt blue, red and rich shades of purple are also on the color wheel this fall. Apply modern fall fashion trends with pastel and strong colors, try mixing color with animal print or with soft leather to create an eye-catching distinction. Thus, creating a chic and stylish look that is definitely attention-getting wherever you go.
Add On Accessory
When wearing the layered look, stick with simple accessories like stud earrings, plain necklaces, and scarves. You can take an outfit to a new level by wearing two scarves that complement each other. Look for scarves that have unique pattern and colors. A scarf not only can keep you warm but can also be a little piece of art that turns your dull outfit into a stylish one.
