Yes! You Can Wear It: Layered Looks

Posted on

For many of us, the thought of piling on layers of clothes before we leave the house can be a little intimidating: How do we know what will look good? Won’t all those extra layers make us fat? Well, as StyleWatch Online Editor Angela Matusik talked about on CBS’s The Early Show, this look is not as hard as it may seem. Here are a few helpful tips to keep in mind to help you get the Layered Look this season. For how-to-buy info for the clothes seen on the show, click through to the next page.

Layering makes clothes that don’t seem wearable, wearable. See that short tunic on Sienna Miller (near left)? Layering means you can wear something as short as that, even in cold temps, without fear of exposing too much to the cold (or strangers).

Slim down your look with lean, dark bottoms. If you choose to wear something with a lot of volume on top, like Kate Bosworth (far left), keep the bottom half of your look dark and lean. Make sure your shoes or boots are the same color as pants, tights or leggings.

Wear lightweight pieces under chunky knits and wools. Don’t layer chunky clothes over other chunky pieces. Keep your look slim by picking lightweight fabrics, like cotton jersey, to wear underneath. That way you can add color and warmth without bulk, like Beyonce’s cropped blazer (center).
