A Beginner's Guide To Layering

on October 17, 2016 / by

Like many women, I too was afraid to layer my clothes for the fear of looking a couple of sizes bigger than I am actually. While most experimentation would make it true, but if you master the art well, the style will be most perfect to compliment your figure and give you a flattering silhouette. 

Since I was equally concerned about layering, I tried a lot of variations and chalked out some simple tips to help you get started. 
§ If you have never layered before, start with solid colours, neutrals or striped. 
§ Keep the under-layers fitted, to keep and maintain your natural shape. 
§ Mixing length and proportion will be the key to the final look. 
§ Keep the accessories minimum, just sprinkle a few on. 

For my first brush with layering, I picked a Sleeveless Flare Maxi Dress with an Under Dress Twinset from Zaful. The dress has a gorgeous Vintage feel to it and is perfect for the summers and the fall.

As it is made in a linen-cotton blend it is a great buy for the Indian weather too. You can see it on the website here. I kept my look simple with the outerwear loose and drapey, but with a structured shoulder. I used colour blocking to create an illusion of layering without actually adding layers of clothing and most important I ditched the sleeves. So basically the dress did the layering for me.
