How to Layer like a Pro

Hi ladies! Welcome to my closet.

When the temp starts to drop, it’s all about the layering. Here are 3 ways for wearing jackets, cardigans and scarves in ways that are sexy, not bulky.

  • Layering level – Beginner

For beginners, start by layering a bodycon sweater dress with an oversized poncho. It’s cozy, unfussy and completely chic. This look is all about playing with proportions and the combination of curve-hugging and oversized makes me a great outfit with visual interest.

  • Layering level – Intermediate

For those who’ve mastered layering level 1, let’s add on more! For chunky sweater coats, pair with lighter layers underneath. This fine knit turtleneck over a silk cami, paired with jacquard leggings shows off your shape. With its leather sleeves and pockets, this sweater coat is the perfect throw-on and go piece.

  • Layering level – Expert

Ready to take your layering to the next level? I’ve paired a tie-neck blouse with a marled knit sweater. Then, I’ve added a pretty lace-detail midi skirt. Over that, I’ve thrown on this amazing bouclé coat in a rich burgundy. The key to this look is to keep your layers in the same colour palette and to make sure they remain fairly close to the body.

  • Show me a long distance runner who is bulky and muscled and I’ll give you 100 bucks. Marathoners, long distance runners, and even XC runners are all thin, light-weight, and have very little heavy muscle. You’ll be fine. Keep running and you won’t gain much muscle.

    Anonymous / parca legea interzice lectiile de condus pe autostrazi? atunci cum sa iasa candidatul la ghici si la adaptare din mers, tocmai la examen? si pe dn cam cati km parcursi ar fi suficienti ca sa se dumireasca examinatorul? km la campie, la deal sau la munte pe serpentine? sunt de parere ca noile reglementari favorizeaza circulatia ani buni inainte fara permis, pt ca omul sa capete abilitatile necesare sa intre, in sfarsit, cand va fi in stare in posesia actului legal.
