Happy Labor Day to all of you! I hope you are all enjoying your holiday!
As I sat here and looked through the store ads that I received in the mail, I noticed all of the fall advertising and I just began to get excited!!! I know I have said this before, but I really love fall!!!
I wanted to share some simple ideas to help you layer your clothes for fall. We all live in different parts of the world, so these tips can be altered according to the climate you live in.
My Fall Layering Guide
1. First Step
Pick a tee (short or long sleeved), a cami or a tank top
The tee, tank or came you pick will be considered your base, so pick a material that is light and breathable.
2. Second Step
Pick a shirt such as chambray, flannel or solid
The shirt you choose can be left unbuttoned, buttoned all the way up, or buttoned halfway, whichever you choose. I particularly like chambray but I think I will purchase a few flannel shirts this year.
3. Third Step
Add a sweater (pullover, cardigan, vest)
Make sure to pick a sweater that matches with your color scheme from your base and shirt choice. You can choose from a pullover sweater, cardigan, or vest. Choosing to wear a vest will add warmth without the bulk around your arms.
4. Fourth Step
Close out your layering with a blazer, wool coat (peacoat, topcoat, cocoon style, wrap), jacket (denim, suede, leather), or trench coat
The final step is choosing a coat, blazer, jacket or trench coat. I really like trench coats because they add warmth and style. You can choose to wear a blazer if you have to dress in business attire for work. A more casual look would be to wear a denim or leather jacket.
I will share all of my OOTDs as soon as we begin to feel the fall weather here in Southern California.
