The buildable outfit: how to layer like a pro


The buildable outfit: how to layer like a pro

Dresses with vests and hats, skirts with knits and statement necklaces, pants with coats and scarves... some women seem to have layering down to a fine art! How many times have you walked past someone who has a perfectly pieced together outfit, and wonder how they do it?

Layering is super important leading into autumn winter: obviously it keeps you nice and warm, but it also keeps things interesting and is great for those of us who get hot as soon as we step inside.

If you're a little more layering-challenged, no fear! We prepare you for the cooler months with an introduction to layering, complete with four highly-styled outfit ideas!

How to Layer a: Maxi Dress

Top 3 Tips:

  • Layer a turtleneck or textured top under a low-cut maxi dress for added warmth and edge
  • Maxi dresses and fur coats are the best of friends! Take the boho look one step further with a wide-brim fedora.
  • Wear a chunky boot - they are perfect layered under sheer fabrics!

How to Layer a: Winter Coat

Top 3 Tips:

  • Add an extra layer for a more styled look! Multiple layers under your coat will always add to your outfit as well as being super practical for Autumn weather.
  • Don't be afraid to play with lengths - a longline coat is equally fab over the top of a mini skirt or pair of winter shorts as it is with jeans.
  • Have fun with colours! Don't shy away from wearing colours under your coloured coat. Colour blocking in Autumn hues looks great under a blush coat (which is very on trend this season).

How to Layer a: work skirt

Top 3 Tips:

  • Dress up a tee for work with a buttoned up shirt layered underneath.
  • Have fun with accessories. A layered look can be dressed up or down with your bag or shoes.
  • Contrasting styles give an ultra modern look. Pair a masculine coat with a floaty skirt, or a structured pencil skirt with a cropped tee.
