Layering 101 with Forever 21 & Marc Fisher

I say this time and time again, but my favorite season is summer. I can easily slip on a dress and just go. With fall and winter comes layering, which can be so tedious for me! But if you start with a certain piece of clothing in mind, and build from the there, the rest comes easily!

This look all started with my favorite mini dress. I didn’t feel like wearing a coat so I opted for a long sleeve top with tiered sleeves. Tops with sleeve detail can really pop and if paired with a basic dress, they become the focal point of the outfit. Instant chic!

Here are my 3 go-to rules when it come to layering:

1. Contrast

Make sure pieces of the outfit contrast each other. Mix a solid colored item with a patterned item. If a piece has a bodycon fit, contrast with something that has a flare!

2. Attention to Detail

If the clothes being layered tend to be on the minimalist side, play it up with detail. In this case, a ribbed knit with tiered sleeves and leather toe-capped OTK beets do the trick.

3. Accessorize

Top off layering with a pop of color, trendy hat, or a bold lip. πŸ’‹

Check out some of my favorite tops with sleeve detail below. Psssst! They’re all under $40!

It can be tricky wearing mini dresses in colder weather. Sometimes I don’t feel like wearing tights or leggings because I tend to be reckless and rip them! πŸ˜‚Β That’s where OKT boots come in! I found the perfect pair that don’t require me to constantly tug at them to stay up on my thighs.

These boots have such a good stretch! They’re suitable for everyone!

If you’re looking for some bomb-ass shoes for your winter wardrobe, look no further, darling! Marc Fisher’s fall collection is to die for. See for yourself:

Happy Holidays & Happy LAYERING, Darlings!

    You look beautiful. I think you have found a fabulous solution for the upcoming winter, although your outfit does give me chills. In this weather my outfits consist of many, many more layers!

    Great post. I am not very good at layering dresses. This post should help. Maybe I will try it for date night.
