One part of having a smaller and more capsule wardrobe is knowing how to style all your pieces in different ways in order to produce different outfits out of the same clothes. Seems straightforward enough right? But sometimes when it comes around to styling there might be some hesitation towards it. Styling your usual pieces differently might actually be a bit hard to overcome because it does involve a certain level of creativity and confidence. But I believe that any of these options I am going to mention below will look good no matter what pieces you have or what your style preference is. Here are 3 different ways to layer your clothes that I have tried before.
Sometimes it can be really easy to just wear the same pieces the same way over and over again. But when you layer things differently it can really boost your self-esteem and re-vamp your wardrobe without buying anything new. If it doesn’t look right then you can simply try something else.
One layering look that has been floating around Instagram is layering a belt over a blazer. Blazers have been a storm in the fashion industry for the last two years. But with so many options on the market and so many similarities one way to jazz a blazer look up is by chucking a belt on it. Not only does it create a gorgeous silhouette where the belt draws your waist in, but its the juxtaposition of the boxy blazer and that silhouette that work so well. You can wear it with cycling shorts like I did, or with jeans or leather leggings on a colder day. Some places do a blazer and belt combo all in one but you don’t need to buy anything extra. If you have a blazer and any belt you are ready to go.
I have quite a few midi or maxi dresses that I don’t want to get rid of because they are so pretty but I also have that ‘can I wear that dress to yet another event’ phobia. Of course, the answer is yes but if you are in the same situation then something as simple as a jumper or a t-shirt in the summer can solve that. By wearing the jumper over the dress you now have a gorgeous midi or maxi skirt. Similarly in the summer you can throw on a t-shirt, knot it at the front and then fold the dress under so you have a perfect summer outfit.
Something that I love doing as a transition outfit out of summer into autumn, or on those slightly colder summer days is but putting a simple t-shirt (short or long-sleeved) underneath a strapped top, playsuit or dress. The extra layer adds some dimension and looks super cute. I have a black lemon. print playsuit which I love layering like this because it works so well with a pair of converse and waved hair.
