How To Layer Clothes for Fall

10:34:00 AM

Fall season is all about layering, isn't it? The prime reason I love and am always excited for fall is because we get to layer clothes. There really isn't anything better than putting on a lot of layers, wrapping yourself in a big scarf and heading out on a cold autumnal walk.  Layering is all about pairing different kinds of clothes to create one cozy, bundled up, thrown together look that seems effortless and yet very fashionable. So, in today's post I wanted to share with you my favorite ways on how to layer your fall pieces and look amazing!

Make sure your outfit works both as a whole and minus a layer or two. This is a first step you have to consider when stepping out in a full layered outfit. Make sure the whole outfit doesn't clash and if you feel like it doesn't look quite right without your coat or jacket, maybe consider changing it up a bit!

Add a big scarf! My favorite autumn accessory is a big scarf which completes an outfit perfectly. Pick out a really autumnal one, with yellow and brown tones and you will always look very put together.

Use the right amount and combination of colors. Not all colors go really well together, so before adding a layer onto your outfit make sure that it looks alright with the clothes you already put together.

Pick up a bunch of flannels and sweaters and pair them. My favorite way of layering is putting on a cute flannel shirt and adding a lovely sweater over it while the collar of the shirt peeks out a bit. That always makes me feel a bit more chic and sophisticated.

Layer chunky sweaters with a long sleeved top. You can also layer your sweaters, not only with flannels, but with a cute long sleeved top. If the sweater has quarter-lenght sleeves, than this makes an outfit even more perfect.

Wear your favorite summer dress. Just because summer's over, doesn't mean you can't still wear your favorite dress out. Just add a shirt over it, a cozy cardigan and some tights and you'll be set to go!

High socks and boots go perfect together! To have an even cozier look, add cozy high socks under your boots and pair them with your favorite leggings. If you add a cool flannel, your outfit will look amazing even if  you haven't even tried that hard.

Keep your under-layers more fitted to keep your shape looking slim. That way your outfit won't seem to bulky and you'll look amazing wrapped up!

Sprinkle on your accessories! Add bracelets, rings, your favorite watch, anything you want, because you can't ever have too many accessories.

Striped tops are perfect for layering. I love wearing stripy tops all year round, but especially in fall because they are look amazing under any sweater or jacket and make the outfit look stunning.

These were a few of my simple tips for layering, I hope you enjoyed them and if you ever think you're wearing too many layers, just think of the scene in Friends where Joey says to Chandler '' Could I be wearing anymore clothes '' (leave a comment if you remember that scene haha).

Love, M xx

  13. When it's around Autumn and winter, the girls at my school tends to wear long, flannel-styled scarves and woolly hats etc,etc. They're really trendy right now and compliment well with our uniform colour which is bottle green. As for me, I find layering quite cute and fashionable and VERY easy to pull of. Just bring on the long t-shirts, woolly jumpers, knitted cardigans, UGG boots and jeggings!
