How to Layer (and NOT Layer) Clothes


by Maria



The “layered look” is a popular trend in fashion these days. It’s perfect for those who want to be comfortable but still look fashionable. In this blog post, we will show you how to layer clothes from head to toe and follow some basic rules that will help you create a layered outfit that looks chic and keeps you warm!

This may seem a little confusing but stick with us. We have an example of how to do it right and wrong so you can follow along!

How to Layer Clothes: The Right Way

First off, the most important thing is that your clothes fit properly. If they are too big or small on top, this will affect how your layered outfit looks. Second, you should always have at least one jacket that is thicker than the rest.

– Start with your base layer: consider wearing a t-shirt and tuck it into some skinny jeans. You can even tuck it into some slim sweatpants.

– Add another layer: Experiment with different options to create your unique look. For example, put on a blazer, sweater, or sweatshirt over your shirt.

– Finish with your outer layer: A trench coat is a great option, but any type of jacket will do.

– Accessorize: This is where you can go wild experimenting with different scarves and hats. For example, wear a hat at night, so you stay warm while looking cute! Scarves are super trendy right now as well.


Try out different ways to tie them around your neck or waist before heading outside in this cold weather. You will look adorable no matter how you accessorize yourself because layers make any outfit stand out more!


How To Layer Clothes When Winter is Coming up

With winter coming soon (yikes!), there are some different rules when layering clothes because we need to think about staying warm first and foremost! It may seem like this limits your options, but actually having a few extra “layers” means you have more ways to accessorize yourself with scarves, etc.

For example, when you’re wearing a turtle-neck and jacket with jeans… think about adding another scarf or hat! You can also try layering two pairs of leggings (one on top of the other) underneath your pants to add some extra warmth in cold weather.

That way, we don’t have to sacrifice fashion for function when it comes to staying warm this winter. If anything – dressing in layers will keep us looking warmer than if we all wore oversized coats like usual and didn’t follow any style rules at all!

These are just some basic examples of how to layer clothes from head to toe so that you feel comfortable but still look fashionable during these colder months.


How NOT To Layer Clothes

We all know how frustrating it is when we try an outfit on and hate what we see in the mirror… so let’s avoid doing this by looking at examples of “layering gone wrong.” The main mistake people make when they wear layers is wearing too many baggy pieces together. This makes us look bigger than we are, and it’s not flattering.

If you add a very large shirt on top of another larger piece… the outfit will look sloppy because there is too much fabric visible in one area. Instead of wearing two pieces that hang down low – try something more fitted! That will help you avoid looking messy or frumpy with your layered look.

If you wear too many thin layers at once, that can also be a problem. You should wear one thick layer on top of another thicker layer for the most flattering look possible! For example, if you’re wearing long sleeves under short sleeves… it’s okay to do so as long as they are both fitted and not too sheer or see-through.


Conclusion: Fit Is Key

Now you know how to layer clothes! Enjoy looking fashionable without sacrificing comfort this winter season with these simple steps on getting the layered look right every time! Remember, the most important thing is to keep your outfit fitted, so it doesn’t look too bulky or loose, and wear shorter sleeves when in doubt! You can also add scarves if you want more than just a hat and gloves for warmth.
