Layering: Some Basics

Last week I talked about all the cool reasons to layer...this week I'll cover a few of the basics to remember so you look chic.

Thicker textures on top The thinnest garment should go closest to your skin. Let's not have cable-knit sweaters under light teeshirts, mmkay?

Tissue-weight=intended for layering Some manufacturers are making lighter-weight tops that are specifically designed for layering. This ruched tee is perfect paired with a camisole.

Don't do too much. Stick to colors that blend well. Don't wear lace and sequins and ruching all together if you can avoid it. If you're wearing something that highlights your assets on top, stick with neutral bottoms.
