I love layers.

Whatever the season, I love the multitude of outfit options layering allows for.

How to wear layers:

1. Mix in an abstract print. This season, stripes and floral are all the rage and can effortlessly give your layers an added pop. When worn underneath (as I did above), they arn’t as shocking. Contrast is key.

2. Combine light layers. I love a button up cardigan under a light blazer jacket. You can even belt the cardigan for added layers (a slimming technique). Start with your lightest layer and build up.

3. Accessorize. Combine scarfs, hats, statement jewelry. Serves as enhancers to your overall look.

4. Pair a graphic tee under a blazer, vest (jean or cargo), cardigans, etc. It gives your look an added edge and unexpected proportion.

Happy layering!
