In today’s video blog I am talking about summer layering. Layering is typically reserved for the fall and winter months, but with a few simple tricks you can work it into your wardrobe all year long. When it comes to layering, there are some fundamental guidelines to follow; regardless of the season, the following strategies will help you layer like a pro.
1. Start off with a neutral basic, whether it’s a tank top or dress this base piece of clothing will set the stage for the rest of your look.
2. I like to follow up with a light layer over the top; an airy blouse with or without sleeves is great for the summer months.
3. If you’re dressing for work or a cooler evening you can follow step two with a blazer or a light sweater.
4. Accessorize. I like to layer a light scarf tied loosely around my neck with lots of jewelry and over sized sunglasses.
Layering is an excellent and cost effective way to spruce up your closet. We all go through periods where it feels like we have nothing to wear, which usually isn’t the case. Rather than buying a whole new outfit, try buying a new scarf or a new blouse that you can mix and match with items you already have laying around. It’s a good idea to invest in some basic wardrobe items that you can reinvent with layering and the addition of new accessories.
