The Art of Layering Tops

Hey Fashionista! The art of layering tops is one of the pillars of successful style.  I used to think that buying a new top and wearing it with jeans would suffice for long lasting style. Sure it looked fantastic when I first wore it out on a date - I felt like a million bucks.  But after a few washes and outings later, that ensemble suddenly found its way to the back of my closet.

Why does this happen...all the time? Because one piece of clothing does not have the lasting power to uphold true style time after time. If it did, it would be called a uniform...and, who wants to wear one on a date?? ;)

The good news is that you don't have to stop wearing your favorite top with jeans - or any other combo you gravitate towards. You only have to layer in other pieces to achieve style success!

To show you how to do this, follow these steps (below) to be successful at the art of layering tops!

1.) First...Wear your favorite top...a t-shirt, tank or camisole. *Make sure this piece fits you well. 

2.) Add a collared shirt (mix in a pattern or texture here - like plaid or chambray!) **Always a good idea buy these pieces a little loose so you can comfortably fit a tee or tank underneath.  

3.) Since we're getting into Spring time, it'll still be nippy outside on occasion. So, layer a cardigan...Boyfriend cardigans are my favorite. *Always buy these one size larger to avoid bunching and tightness that often occur when layering multiples pieces together.

((Here's my version of step 1-3...a white racerback tank, chambray and gray boyfriend cardigan. Depending on where you're going/what you're doing, you can make it simple like this or add fun colors and prints. The choice is yours!))

4.) If it's super cold outside, layer a vest or jacket on top. (You can add a cool color or print!) 

5.) Top it off with a belt at the waist! (Go for a great color here too.) 

6.) As for accessories, you can add a scarf or a great statement necklace to the mix! 

If there's anything to take away from this post, it's mix and match different layers. One piece of clothing won't uphold true style, so have fun with this!! 

I hope you enjoyed the art of layering tops! Feel free to share this post on Pinterest (sharing icon at the top of this post!), Facebook or Twitter! Wishing you a fabulous week, Fashionista!
