Stylishly layering an outfit can add depth and interest to your look, as well as being a practical way to keep you warm/cool as the weather changes.

Here are my tips to help you master the art of layering:

What pieces to wear?

  • Build your layered look by starting with a well-fitted, simple base
  • Then add all or some of these garments: a blouse/shirt, a jumper/cardigan, a jacket/blazer, a scarf and/or a coat

To create interest in your layered outfit:

  • Combine different fabric textures: Pair knits with denim, silk with leather, or cotton with wool
  • Experiment with different lengths, such as a shorter jacket over a longer top
  • Introduce a statement piece, like a colourful scarf
  • Have fun with colour and play with a mix of colors, shades and tones
  • Experiment with a combination of patterns and plains and coordinate the colours for a stylish finish
  • Add accessories – think about your jewellery, scarves and handbags

Remember, the key to successful layering is to strike a balance between comfort, functionality, and style. Don’t be afraid to experiment and find what works best for your personal style and body shape.
