Sunny days and cool nights mean that layering is our best friend again. And our favorite thing about layering (aside from how it helps us conquer the unpredictable Dallas winter weather) is that it takes our oh-so-chic basics to a new level of luxe without much effort. Here are five ensembles we’re rocking this season.
SHOW OFF YOUR BELL SLEEVES
Let’s be honest, the biggest reason we wear coats is just because they are pretty. So why not show off your killer statement sleeves while you’re at it?
WEAR A BELT OVER A COAT
Be bold and ditch the matchy-matchy waist tie on your favorite coat for a contrasting belt. Even better: Add a belt to a coat that previously didn’t have one at all and add some dimension to an otherwise shapeless look.
PUT A DRESS OVER A SKIRT
Layer a fun, festive skirt under a straightforward sweater dress and all of a sudden you have a totally unexpected and awesome effect. It’s not the easiest look to pull off, but trust us, it’s worth the fashion risk.
LAYER A DRESS OVER JEANS
Hey, the ’90s called and says hi. Flared jeans and blousy dresses really are a match made in heaven. And it looks as modern as ever.
SLIP A CAMI OVER LONG SLEEVES
Big-busted girls everywhere are singing the praises of this layering trick that is another ’90s throwback. The on-trend look lets you wear a bra and a cute little cami. Yep. Win-win.
