The weather in the UK can be unpredictable at best. The UK is probably the only place in the world where you can experience all four seasons in one day. This practical way of dressing is essential for every fashionista to master the art of layering. Combining different garments in layers can be used to revitalise your wardrobe. Coordinate layers according to changes in temperature; and make use of clothing to produce different looks and mix colours in various ways. Therefore, we should all dress like onions!
Top tips for layering clothes
- When layering clothes, opt for a lightweight jacket.
- A white button-down shirt goes with almost any outfit.
- Use a belt to add shape to your silhouette as well as holding your outfit together.
- Make your outfit spicy with a splash of colour. This could be with an undertow or with accessories.
Here are a few outfit ideas...
White button-down skirt + ANYTHING
You could team this up with a strapless top, a jumper or playsuit/jumpsuit over the shirt.
Bralet + top underneath
For a contemporary structured look add a bracket to a plain tee, shirt or thin jumper. This can be teamed up with any bottoms of your choice and a lightweight jacket (possibly denim).
Dress + Slogan tee
If you're like me and have too many nigh-out dresses then this look is for you. To transform your night-out dress to a day-out dress, simply add a slogan tee underneath and add a lightweight jacket
Blazer + Hoodie
For a layered smart casual look, team up a jumper with a hoody. Hoodies are no longer just for the gym; dress up your hoody with a perfectly tailored suit. Feel cosy and warm whilst looking dashingly chic.
