The best part about fall is that it’s layering season! It’s time to break out the long sleeves, chunky knits, and outerwear. Having trouble finding the right pieces for your fall wardrobe? It’s actually quite simple once you have a few essential pieces. From tops and cardigans, to dresses and jackets--we’ve collected a few layering pieces that will revamp your wardrobe this season. Choose light fabrics as your base, and pile on the layers! Lookout, fall; here we come!
Choosing the right tops is probably the most stressful thing ever. You have plenty of basics, so where do you go from here? Opt for some not-so-basic basics. With this, it’s all in the details. Some seemingly basic tops with a bit of flare can totally change the overall look of your outfit. Take this pajama-style blouse from Tobi, for instance, for an “I woke up like this” look.
Simple solid tops are great to layer with as well. They should be lightweight so they can be layered under sweaters or outerwear. The neck details add a little something extra to take an otherwise basic top to another level. Layer these light tops under chunkier knits for some textural contrast.
Transitioning into the fall means that sometimes it’s temperate enough to throw on a dress and a light cardigan to power through your work or school day. Layering dresses underneath cardigans and jackets is an effortless way to look stylish without the stress of having to find bottoms to match your top. For those lazy days where you just need to get out of the house on time (for once), opt for one of these versatile neutral palette dresses for this fall.
Chunky fuzzy cardigans will keep you warm for the fall and create a laidback feel. They even pair well with any of the items shown above! Patterned cardigans can also create a more interesting contrast with your solid basic tops or dresses. You can easily dress down an elegant slip dress too for a cozy, loungey vibe! A cardigan with an unexpected pattern can be that perfect statement piece for those days when you just want to throw something on and look chic without even trying.
Some of the best outerwear pieces are light so you can layer without feeling like a pig in a blanket. A light draped jacket or anorak is the perfect addition to this season’s fall wardrobe. This longline drape jacket is your new favorite grab-and-go jacket for a night out. Pair it with a form-fitting midi dress for an elegant city look. An anorak is ideal for casual days. Pair this chambray anorak with a light solid tee and your favorite dark-wash jeans. Another fall essential that you will be excited to take into the winter months, is this tailored-look blazer coat. It’s clean and simple--a timeless staple for your wardrobe.
Fall layering is simple; opt for some light tops or dresses, light jackets, and chunkier knit cardigans and coats to top them off. Layerable pieces are usually light-medium weight fabrics because they won’t feel too constricting when you’re piling them on. You’ve now mastered the art of basic fall layering! Good luck and here’s to a stylish season!
