1. Choose two pieces in the same color family.
Too many prints and colors can be dizzying. Gabi keeps her look streamlined and chic by coordinating two layers: her black and white plaid shirt and graphic tee.
2. Mix in a bright.
Keep neutral layers from looking drab by adding a jolt of bright color. Tiffany nails the look with her neon peplum skirt.
3. Pull the look together with a belt.
Kela’s belt keeps her houndstooth coat and leather jacket from appearing too bulky. Added bonus? It also creates a feminine silhouette.
4. Choose outerwear that shows off your sleeves like capes.
A cape is the ultimate layering piece because it lets you show off your top underneath. Jessica’s plaid shirt is the perfect accent to her solid black cape.
5. Mix textures.
Christina adds dimension to her look by mixing and matching various textures. Her tweed coat, silky blouse and leather shorts play off each other perfectly.
6. Get creative with a scarf.
You can transform your winter basics with just a scarf and a belt. Cortnie layers a printed scarf over a black top and cinches with a belt for a bold, stylish look.
7. Keep the lower layer pieces monochrome.
Denim on denim is one of Winter’s hottest trends and it makes layering a breeze. A bold coat in another color is all you need to nail the look.
8. Pay attention to proportions.
Layering is all about balancing proportions. Danielle does it brilliantly by pairing a loose-fitting coat and jeans with a fitted top.
The easiest way to pull off layering? An all black color palette. Stick to black like Mattie and you can mix textures and styles with ease.
10. Don’t be afraid to mix prints.
If you’re more of a risk taker, try mixing prints like Eboni. She pairs polka dots and stripes in the same color family, while throwing in colorful accessories to brighten her look.
