Fall Style Tip: Layering

As the temperature is starting to drop, layering should be an essential part of all your outfits. The day might start out chilly but end up being scorching hot. In these cases, it is key to layer outfits so you can start out wearing more than you’ll end the day with.

 Though layering may sound simple, there is an art to making it so that you’re not carrying around half your wardrobe by the end of the day.

 The best layering pieces are scarves, open front sweaters, pashminas, ponchos, etc. Yes, wearing a light jacket it cute, but it can become heavy and hard to carry around when you’re not wearing it.


 Whether you prefer a silk or knit scarf, this is an easy layering piece that can be put on when its chilly and thrown or tied around the strap of a bag (depending on the size). There are so many ways to tie and style scarves that the possibilities are endless

 Some cute fall scarf style options for this year are:

Open Front Sweaters:

 Sweaters are definitely more bulky than a scarf, but if you often find yourself much colder during one part of the day than another or the air conditioning in your office is always blasting, than something heavier is necessary. An open-front sweater is great because it’s easy to take on and off and the ones made of flexible fabrics are great because it can be thrown in a bag or tied around your waist or shoulders when you’re not wearing it.

Not feeling a sweater and going for a more casual look? Flannels can also easily be taken off or put on and tied around your waist!

This year, ponchos are making a comeback! These are easy to pop right over your head and keep you warm when you need it most. They may not be the easiest item to, let’s say, tie around your waist, but they do fold easily into a bag for when you’re not wearing it. Or you can just drape it over a chair if you’re not walking around.

As you can see there are endless possibilities to look cute and stay warm as the temperature starts to drop for fall. Happy layering!
