How to Layer Like A Pro || Summit Fair

I love the fall season and one of the things I love most about it is the fashion. It's such a fun time to be able to experiment with all kinds of trends. Layering your looks is key to staying on trend. Sometimes women are afraid to layer because of the fear of looking heavier. I'm here to tell you if you layer your Fall looks right you will look fabulous!  A perfectly layered look can create a proportioned silhouette and can even help you feel more confident.

Start your layers with a simple cotton long sleeve tee. Solid colors, neutrals, or a small striped pattern are good options. Try to keep this foundation layer fitted to keep your shape looking slim. The less bulk under your layers the better. Now chose the next layer such as a cardigan, lightweight vest, or sweater. This is where you can really have fun with patterns. I chose this Aztec/Stripe sweater as my pattern in this outfit, but you can experiment with animal print, stripe, or florals. Next, you can add a jacket or coat over the top. Make sure this next layer compliments the patterned layer you have underneath. The weather in Kansas City hasn't been quite cold enough for coats yet so I decided to add a scarf to this look instead.

Sometimes sweaters can feel a little bit bulky. If you feel that way try belting your waist. This will define your waist line and bring in the extra fabric a bit around your body plus, it's fun to add a pop of color or metallic like I did. It's also best to play with texture when layering. When you style your look with more textures it adds more dimension and will help to keep you from looking heavy.

Fall looks can be so much fun because you can create some fabulous looking combinations with your favorite wardrobe pieces.

    1. Thanks Meg! I've enjoyed layering up all my fall sweaters! I love that it's still been warm enough to not cover them up with coats :) xo Jana

  2. Love this sweater! I'm all about layering this season. Especially when the mornings start out cooler and then it gets hotter as the day goes on. Hope you have a great weekend!
