Mastering the art of layering is a must for the winter months! The styling options become endless. The key to layering is to pair pieces together that create both a stylish and effortless look. There are definitely “do’s and don’ts” when it comes to layering. You want to make sure to balance your pieces so that your look is flattering and your figure doesn’t get lost in the layers. Too many bulky layers can appear frumpy. But it is all about experimenting! Don’t be afraid to mix your summer and winter pieces together. And never be afraid to mix patterns! One of my favorite pieces to layer is a slip dress!
Since the weather is currently too cold for anything sleeveless and this dress from PB&J Boutique is too pretty to sit in my closet all winter long, I decided to layer this dress over a turtleneck and throw on some tights to keep warm. Since my overall look is on the darker side, I decided to lighten things up with this fun faux fur coat from Forever 21. I am a bit obsessed with faux fur statement coats, so purchasing this one was a no brainer.
Besides the gorgeous embroidered mesh overlay on this dress, what I love most is its versatility. This layered look is perfect for the workplace. It’s stylish yet conservative. The layering actually dresses down the overall look. Take the turtleneck and tights off, throw on a pair of stiletto heals and this look is automatically transformed. While the length is still conservative, you now have a sexy dress for a night out with the girls or your man!
