14 Ways to Layer

Layering is an essential part of getting dressed, not only for functionality during the seasons, but to show off your inner stylist and express your individuality.

As the seasons change, the weight of the layers shift as well. For winter, we opt for more heavy weight layers - coats, sweaters - to keep us warm and toasty from head to toe.

In spring, we peel off the thick layers and opt for more lightweight pieces like dresses, shackets, long sleeved blouses, even blazers.

Then comes summer and we switch to light weight blouses, bralettes, shorts + kimonos and we rock these until fall and it's rinse and repeat from there.

Basically, there are a million ways to layer all four seasons long. But to keep things simple and cute, we've curated 14 ways we love to layer, whatever the weather.

The Slip Dress Over Or Under Everything
