Thank goodness the layering season is upon us! We can stop sucking in! Sweeping cardigans and fringed out vests are among my favorite trends this season. Not to mention that denim jackets have never been hotter and will breathe new life into some of my summer clothes I barely got out of the closet! Pairing all of these trends with simple neutrals and form fitting under layers is the best. Perfectly paired with boots (cowboy or otherwise) is a smart, chic look to polish off the entire outfit. Why do we just look cooler with boots on?
FASHION TIP when layering with cardigans, vests or jackets….keep the under layers “unbulky.” Adding bulk to bulk will just make us look bigger! Also, belting is a hot trend but let’s face it, not everyone can pull it off. If a belt is accentuating your waist, great! If it’s accentuating a “roll,” skip it. And if you’re worried about seeing the rolls with form fitting shirts, drape a long scarf around your neck and let it flow down the front of the cardigan/jacket/vest, it will camouflage some of those unsightly lady lumps.
Stay warm, enjoy the changing seasons! xoxox Emily (Laney’s mom)
