Fashion is an industry that moves fast. The Fall 2011 Ready to Wear runway shows are already showing on Style.com! I don’t know about you but I haven’t even busted out my summer wardrobe yet. If it were up to me I would have been rockin’ bare legs and wedges about two months ago. This is of course not by choice….yeah that’s right Mother Nature I am taking to you. I thought we had an agreement! I dunno what your deal is girl…. Boo Rain!
All joking aside, the weather really does dictate what we wear and when we wear it. So the question remains…How can we rock those gorgeous summer pieces when Mother Nature continues to be a total B?
Layering! The weather has been so unpredictable lately. I find it really challenging to get dressed in the morning. In these situations, I layer.
Layering can give an outfit depth. When accessorized with the right pieces, your look can go from WOW to ZANG ZOW! I love to layer jackets together. Sometimes I will layer a jean jacket under a blazer, a short leather jacket over a long chunky cardigan, or even two blazers together. Seen in the today’s look ; )
If you are looking for layering inspiration then check out some of the RTW runway shows on Style.com. I was inspired to layer this short tweed jacket over this jade blazer by none other than Chanel. This layered styling is featured in their Fall RTW show.
(Tweed jacket – Common Sort on Queen Street West, Blazer – H&M, Trousers – Le Chateau, Shoes – Payless, Printed top and Purse – Thrift, Broach – Jacob, Watch and Jewelry – Guess)
