Fashion Dos - Layering with Overpieces
Fall’s cooler weather means bundling up in cozy overpieces and outerwear. The key is learning to approach jackets, dusters and kimonos as part of your look instead of just outerwear. Styled thoughtfully, overpieces can be the highlight of your outfit and serve as that perfect finishing touch.
Instead of adding bulk and overwhelming your frame, layering with overpieces can actually accentuate your waist, make you look taller and add an ease and elegance to your look. These four influencers show us how it’s done.
Laura Ferry of @whatlauraloves dons a crepe duster jacket for transitioning to fall. Layered over a dark printed top and trousers, the jacket ties the ensemble together. The slim black pant and heeled wedge add height to Laura’s look and keep the duster from overwhelming her frame. (Photo Credit: Mark Dawson)
Jodi Pollak of @jodipollakplusmodel wears a cropped denim jacket to highlight her waist. The denim pops against the darker dress and adds texture and dimension to the look. If a dress looks boxy or plain on its own, take a cue from Jodi to add more interest.
Evann Webb of @damselindetroitblog wears shapely jeans and a partially tucked sweater underneath her chic overcoat to accentuate her figure. The coat’s soft colors and sleek design keep it from feeling bulky and heavy.
Anne Adams of @curlsandcontours shows how a trendy kimono can elevate staple pieces like leggings and black tanks. The light, flowing fabric and relaxed fit feel easy and effortless, taking this look from basic to magnetic.
