Light Layer – Menswear is making a big splash in women’s fashion, creating some wonderful opportunities for layering. If you’ve recently picked up a stunning pantsuit, don’t limit yourself to wearing the pieces together. Turn that smart blazer into a light jacket by layering it over a dress, turtleneck, or t-shirt and jeans.
Arctic Chill – If you live in a particularly cold climate, you can’t go wrong with a shearling or fluffy faux fur coat. Not only did these super cozy options dominate AW17 runways, they provide enough warmth to cover up without requiring too many bulky layers. A single well-selected jacket will warm up both day looks and eveningwear beautifully.
Always Appropriate – Chances are, if you’re a true fashionista, you’ve already got a trench coat, or two, in your closet. Good news. The trench trend is still going strong. So if you’ve got a classic trench, particularly one in bold red or a plaid pattern, you already own one of the season’s hottest, and most versatile, pieces. Dust it off and wear it proudly over everything from a thin blouse to a heavy sweater.
