Spring is the perfect time of year to indulge in some experimentation such as layering. After all, a new wardrobe and some new clothes can equal a new you, right?
Fortunately this handy little infographic from the fabulous folks at Alight helps explain just how to get the art of layering just right, and how to avoid that rather unfortunate ‘grabbed whatever was on the floor because your alarm didn’t go off this morning’ look.
However, if you decide to use the skills and techniques outlined in this infographic, you must might be able to pull off some couture-level layering on a more manageable budget. The key to it is making sure everything fits to size, particularly the closer to the body the layer in question is.
For example, it’s fine having a loose jacket to finish off your outfit, but having a loose tank top underneath it all will make you look sloppy. On the other hand, having a tight jacket over a loose shirt is more likely to make you look messy and uncoordinated – but having a more close-fitting tank top underneath your carefully constructed layers can help build a very cool and yet effortless looking outfit.
So if you’re looking for a cool way to bring together some of your favourite pieces into a killer outfit, all without sacrificing any taste, check out this handy little guide and let us know what your absolute fashion rules are.
