TREND: Layering Your Basics

Winter weather is finally arriving! The air is getting crisper and it’s starting to feel like the Holiday season, which just happens to be my favorite time of the year. As I have mentioned before, I love the layered look. It gives an outfit visual interest and helps keep you warm when the temperature drops. My favorite thing about the way this Fashionista layered is how she mixed such simple pieces. I love bold outfits, but sometimes it’s nice to just stick to the basics. However it can be hard to keep your outfit from looking boring. This Fashionista has done a great job of mixing many separate simple items to create a cute layered outfit. I love the mixture of neutrals in this color palette. They are my favorite colors for this time of year and look so much better when combined. The outfit consists of a cozy oatmeal short-sleeved sweater with flap details on the sleeves. She layered it over a long-sleeve white T-shirt and black leggings. To finish the look, she stuck with the popular boot trend and wore brown leather boots with a small wedge and a buckle detail. Such simple pieces can look really cute.

Hint: To make simple items like T-shirts or plain leggings look more interesting and creative, try combining them together in a similar yet contrasting color palette. Try mixing different neutrals together too for a fresh look. To get this look, you can find similar style boots by Steve Madden that look great with just about any outfit. Nine West has a really cute sweater in chocolate brown that would look great with this combination. Have fun experimenting to see what works and what doesn’t
