Layering allows you to create unique combinations with your wardrobe

Just 'LAYER' it!

Layering is one of the simplest methods to boost your style, second to wearing well-fitting clothing. Layering allows you to create unique combinations with your wardrobe. It allows you to play around with different textures, materials, weights, patterns, and colours, and your wardrobe options will be infinite.

Here's how you can layer your outfit:

To begin with, it is self-evident. When it comes to layering, there are several principles you may follow, just as with other things in fashion. Remember the basic four laws of layering:

RULE 1: Wear lighter, thinner textiles inside, and heavier, thicker materials outside.

RULE 2: If you don't want to seem like a wool ball, don't go overboard with your layering; keep it to three layers at most.

RULE 3: We have a plethora of colours to select from, but when pairing colours, wear a lighter shade inside and layer it with a darker shade.

RULE 4: To avoid saggy or loose inner layers, make sure each layer fits you well and could be worn on its own.

Now that you've mastered the fundamental rules, it's time to learn about the various layering styles:

Adding a turtleneck underneath an outfit is the simplest method to the layer. A cool-casual feel may be achieved with graphic shirts and a denim jacket, and you can formalise the look by layering a formal shirt over your turtle neck shirt.

Stay classic with sweater

The pretty sweater

This fundamental style is excellent for layering because sweaters and shirts are items that you already have in your collection. Sweaters can be a great alternative to a standard plaid or plain button-down shirt as they give you a sophisticated and more relaxed look.

Bring the Kimono

Style it with Kimono

Remove the picture of crunchy, yellow plastic ponchos from your mind since ponchos aren't just for rainy days. Drape it over a fitted shirt or turtleneck and match it with pants so you can shed the layer if it gets too hot. Because most kimonos aren't particularly thick, you can easily fold them up and store them in your handbag.

Style the Summer Dress

The funky layered summer dress

Spaghetti straps and sleeveless dresses have a place in your fall-to-winter collection, too. When the weather is cool, you can wear this summer staple over a long-sleeved shirt or sweater to transform your look. If the dress is form-fitting, combine it with a loose-fitting top for a warm contrast, and keep the look casual with shoes or booties and minimal accessories.

Ethinic layering

The trending Indo-western

Combine a denim jacket with your favourite kurti for a fusion spin on your desi look. This sort of layering is ideal for the outdoors, and it can be worn in both warm and cold temperatures.
