Bored of your everyday wardrobe? Update your style with these key layering tips.
Despite what you might think, the layering trend is not just for the cold season. The key to layer it up for our (very) hot and humid weather is to always opt for lightweight pieces such as chiffon dresses, bodysuits and vests are great options! Not only can you up-cycle your old clothes, you will also gain a whole new outfit and style. Here are six easy ways to jazz up your wardrobe.
1. Colour and Print
If you own a see-through shirt and have always been concerned about your bra showing, don’t fret! Style it over a plain shirt dress, and complete your whole ensemble with a few bright accessories or outerwear. Don’t be afraid to pile them on!
2. Take Note of Trends
Nobody does layering better than our local fashionista herself, @blondaholik! Master the trend by wearing your cropped top over a button-down shirt for more structure. Pair it with a pair of comfy culottes and you’re set for work or a weekend brunch.
3. Play It Up
You can now reach out for your collection of bodysuits more often with this style tip! Wear it under a structured blazer and matching suit and bring your #girlboss attitude to the table.
4. Casual Sunday
Take a cue from @joanne-tea by pairing your statement bandeau top over a thin sweater or even a plain white T-shirt! You can always dress it down with a pair of good ol’ mom jeans and funky accessories.
5. Cue The Culottes
Culottes have been around for awhile, and there’s a reason why! The no-frills piece adds flair to any look. Style them under a midi dress or top, and complete your outfit with a matching blazer to for a boardroom-appropriate finish.
6. Go The Extra Mile
Take things up a notch by wearing your blazer off-shoulder like @jaja_a over a fitted top! (To show some skin, don a sleeveless top instead). Pair it with a pleated midi skirt and belt to accentuate your figure.
