Written by THE KIT

Dressing for the fall season is like opening a treasure chest that’s been tucked away throughout the warmer months. It's a time to rediscover the forgotten gems in our closets, and it’s also a great opportunity to inject new life into your wardrobe. The easiest way to get started is to learn the art of layering, so you can create the perfect outfit from top to toe.

Whether you're getting ready for a brisk morning walk or a fun-filled outing with friends, we’ve got a few simple tips and tricks that make layering a cinch.

Start with a Strong Foundation

Let’s Talk Tops

The key to successful layering is to begin with the right base. Choose a top that resonates with your style, and then build the rest of your outfit around it to create an intriguing focal point. Nature-inspired prints, playful motifs and rich colour palettes can set the stage for the rest of your look.

Get to the Bottom of It

Balance your top with a perfectly fitting pair of pants. Whether you go for a slim, straight or wide leg cut, make sure to choose a style with just the right amount of stretch so that it’s as comfortable as it is chic.

Invest in Versatile Outerwear

A wear-with-anything layer is your best friend during the fall, but that doesn’t mean it has to be basic. Opt for a piece with a little bit of flair, like a design with a plush faux fur trim or vegan leather detailing, to look put together in a flash. Wool-blend coats, capes and ponchos are all solid layering options that strike the perfect balance between function and fashion.

Embrace Accessories

Accessories are the cherry on top of any layered ensemble. A colourful scarf, embellished purse or wide buckle belt are easy extras that can create a high-impact look with minimal effort.

Keep It Personal

Remember, fashion is a form of self-expression! Don't be afraid to infuse your personality into your layers. Whether it's combining colour and texture or mixing and matching with a vintage find, experimenting with pieces you already love is a great way to take an everyday outfit to the next level.
