Layers, Layers, Layers…
Good fashion is like Ogres, or onions… there are many layers. Obviously it’s a bit hard to pile on the layers when it’s blue skies in the middle of Australian summer but now that it’s starting to get a little colder at night, we can experiment some more.
The key to layering effectively is having different sized clothing and different coloured clothing and of course it is important to co-ordinate these choices!
For sizing, a good look could be skinny jeans with an oversize tee. Then you could layer a bomber jacket or an overshirt or even another shorter tee over the top and have the long tee coming out the bottom. Something like this:
For colours, it can be easy to get carried away but as a general rule, you should only use 1 or 2 colurful items otherwise it can look a little overbearing and mismatched. You always want one part of your outfit to really grab peoples attention. So try wearing black jeans or pants with a plain tee and a more colourful piece on top. Try something like this:
Every now and then a random combination will actually work really well, so don’t completely rule anything out. It’s best to wear the clothes you like the most and feel the most confident wearing.
