Many women are afraid to layer their clothes for fear of looking bigger than they actually are. While logic would lead one to believe that this claim is true, if you’ve mastered the art of layering this couldn’t be further from the truth. A perfectly layered look will compliment your curves and create the illusion of a more proportional silhouette.
Steps to a Perfectly Layered Outfit
1. Start with a basic, lightweight top or a dress. I suggest a solid, something neutral, or striped.
2.Then add a Blazer, jacket or coat. Again, I suggest a basic color: camel, black, navy, or even olive green or sumtng which has a bright prints in it so u can pair it up with your bold color top or a dress.
3.Sprinkle on your accessories (chain, bracelets, rings, watches).
4.pair your outfit with a white sneaker, Oxford shoes or a heels.
Quick Layering Tips
1. Keep the under-layers more fitted to keep your shape looking slim, preferably choose a thick fabric.
2.If you’re concerned about your waistline, try to top off your look with something belted.
3.Length and proportion is key when layering.
4.Play with texture. It’s best to incorporate a mix of materials when styling a layered look. If you use all of the same fabrics, you’re look will come off as heavy and dowdy (which can add the appearance of unwanted weight as well).
Now it’s your turn! Layer together your best look.
