Outfit Layering 101

Outfit Layering 101

Hold your horses people, it’s not spring yet!  You may have thought it was right around the corner as I did a few days ago…and then winter reared it’s ugly head!  I am dying for the days when I ride my bike to the garment district every day without a coat.  But seeing as we’re not quite there yet, let’s talk layers.  Layering is by far the easiest way to transition into spring.  What I love most about it is it’s the perfect way to mix textures, colors and add interest.  Additionally it’s easy to mix high and low items into one outfit.

This season I was rocking my favorite vintage cape from Bergdorf Goodman’s .  A great cape is an investment every girl should make.  Now I know, us fashion girls love to drape our coats over our shoulder instead of putting our arms into our sleeves, but a cape does that for you…without all that worry that your coat is going to fall off.

This outfit was one of my fave fashion week looks.  The layering technique I really adopted this season was taking a scarf, crossing it across my body and wrapping a belt around my waist.  It adds great texture and interest to any outfit.  Additionally it adds a whole layer of warmth!  This look can easily transition into spring with a silk scarf as well!  Add your favorite knee high boot and a great pop color bag, and you’re all put together!

What is your favorite layering technique this fall/winter or spring/summer?  I would love to hear how you add your own dash of personality to your style!
