Are you ready to transition your wardrobe for fall?
Transitioning your sustainable outfits shouldn’t be stressful, think of it as we just need layers to keep us warm. Even though just throwing on an oversized sweater and calling it a day sounds easy, we have something even better - fall layering done right.
Fall fashion is all about staying comfortable while looking stylish. Sometimes layering for fall’s fluctuating temperatures can feel a little bulky. That’s why we’ve come up with a helpful guide on how to layer up a few of our coziest pieces in this year’s most coveted styles.
Tips For A Perfect Fall Layered Look
The biggest tip we can give is, use summer essentials to create a sustainable layered look for fall. That’s one of the best parts of layering for fall, you can create so many stylish looks using different pieces from your wardrobe. A perfectly layered look should make you look amazing. In fact it should accentuate your assets. For example, you can start with a basic worktop or an oversized button-down shirt. For easier layering, opt for neutral colors.
You can then add a sweater, a duster like this silk duster jacket, or a blazer. Tip: If you love to add a pop of color, now would be a perfect time with this layer.
If the temperature has dropped outside, put a jacket or coat over your second layer. If you chose a colorful second layer, go back to neutral colors for the jacket or coat.
For a quick layering idea, add a belt to accentuate the waistline. You can wear the belt over the second layer or underneath it. Both will look amazing and can create very different, but stylish looks.
Combine different textures. When styling a layered look, it’s important to incorporate different fabrics in your outfit. Wearing the same materials will make your outfit look dull and boring. Or worse, bulky and heavy. Check out this suede smock blouse that can easily be layered on.
Wear Two, instead of one
Wear two sweaters instead of one to bring up the heat. Sounds comfy, cozy, and warm but the real question is… will it make me look bigger? Not necessarily. Style a thin knit for the first layer and a chunky one for the second layer. It’s a great trick for adding extra texture to your sustainable fall look.
Summer dresses for easy fall looks
Summer dresses are a great option to layer with for fall. Style them with boots or a leather jacket for a more feminine-rock look or throw on a blazer for casual workwear. For a more 90’s look, wear a textured dress, such as this sueded-silk bias slip dress, throw on a chunky oversized sweater on top, and some booties for colder days.
One thing to keep in mind when pairing sweaters and dresses, add accessories such as belts for a more accentuated silhouette. If it's really cold, tights are a great way to add color and texture to an outfit. Get a sweater with a chunkier design to create different textures for a stunning contrast.
