Layering 101 – A Guide To Fall Layering

Fall is often a time full of outfitting inspiration as new trends emerge from fashion month and the ‘more is more’ mindset settles in along with cooler temps.

That being said, sometimes it gets a little difficult to reinvent your go-tos with a budget in mind and all of that Instagram inspo at your fingertips. So, it’s time to take a look at the pieces already in our closet and those sparking serious outfit inspo out on the interwebs.

Whether hitting the apple orchard, or keeping it cozy by a pumpkin spiced anything, we think these fall layering tips and tricks are hitting the mark.

Into the Trenches

we're playing up band tees and trenches all day long, especially in this color way.

Ideal for that cool but not cold weather that is slowing making a regular appearance in the forecast, we love a trench for the classic layering option it is, but in a new colorway channeling fall foliage in a so-soft faux suede.

(And notice how we paired with a band tee? Yeah, that vintage touch is going to carry through the season in a big way).

Wild Card

as they say, two jackets are better than one - at least, that's what we're saying.

Keeping the trench talk going – we love to transfer trends, and the animal print craze is no exception.

Looking to bring a little grunge to otherwise elevated outerwear? We’ll embrace the solution to most of life’s layering problems – add a denim jacket. The variation of hems will add more interest to the overall silhouette and brings the whole look into cool-girl territory.

Speaking of cool, this trench is one of those special, unique pieces that won’t break the bank – which means you may just have enough to opt for another layering piece – see below.

Ski-Sensible

when in doubt - add a vest

We’ll save the slopes for another day, but in the meantime we will keep this vest right wear it belongs, in constant rotation.

Also noteworthy, the stripes on stripes. A fall neutral in their own right, incorporating both varsity and après-ski style is a risk that is paying off.

Monochrome Magic

love to layer? us too! play with adding extra layers on top and keeping it sleek and simple on bottom for major fall feels.

Solid sweaters have earned a special place in our hearts, and we love being able to play them up in semi-unexpected ways. Here we went full on tonal, and it paid off big. By adding a sleek bootie to the equation, you can kick the whole outfit up a notch and suddenly bring your day date into the evening hours.

As they say, the only thing better than one sweater, is two – at least, that’s what we’ve heard. (;
