Thanks to People StyleWatch's October 2010 issue, here are some useful tips on the best ways to layer your clothes!
Pair dressy with casual--You don't have to save the sparkles for nighttime as long as you wear them with simple jeans and a basic blazer. At American Eagle, try the AE Embellished Sweater ($39.95) with the AE Boyfriend Blazer ($59.95) and the Medium Antique Skinny Jean ($39.50) with a simple pair of flats to let the sweater stand out.
Mix textures--Don't be afraid to mix and match but try to pair chunkier knits with thin ones so you don't look bulky. At Hollister, try the Tecolote Canyon button sweater (Epic Only, $59.50) with the Bluebird Beach long-sleeve layer ($14.89) and the North Jetty lace tank ($24.50) for a nice, cozy look. Try it with dark-wash straight jeans and some grey winter boots.
Show off your waist--With a long, loose cardi, your shape can easily get lost! Don't look like a guy...define your waist with a belt and the whole outfit will look even more pulled together.
Play with proportion--Bored of the same layers? Mix it up by layering a cropped jacket over a baby doll tank or a long and lean sweater with a cute pair of leggings and some booties. At Abercrombie & Fitch, try the Valerie cardigan ($58) over the Lucy tank ($34) and the Perfect Butt Jersey Leggings ($20) and some grey booties.
This fall and winter, you can stay warm in style because you know how to layer!
