Fall is here, which means it’s time to start layering. Not only can layers help you stay warm on cool fall days, but layers can also make your outfits more fashionable.

When dressing in layers, make sure your base layer is thin and comfortable. This layer should be thin so that it is easy to layer pieces over. If your base layer is too thick, your other clothing will feel bulky and uncomfortable layered on top.

Layers should be easy to remove. As you go about your day, you may find yourself heating up. You want your exterior layers, such as your jackets and sweaters, to be easy to take off and put on throughout the day. Consider outerwear with zippers or buttons when layering.

When you’re so focused on layering your tops and bottoms, you may forget about accessories. Accessories can take your outfit to the next level, so don’t forget about adding your favorite jewelry to your outfits. You also want to consider adding hats or scarves to an outfit on colder days. Plus, a belt can accentuate your waist when you’re wearing a lot of layers that may hide your shape.

Before tossing on our layers, make sure to plan your outfit. Consider a color scheme before putting a sweater over your favorite button-down top. Some easy color schemes to strive for include black and white, pastels, and warm fall tones like oranges, browns, yellows, and reds.
