As fall approaches, you may be finding yourself torn between putting away some of your favorite summer pieces you’ve been wearing religiously for the past four months and covering up to combat the definite chill that has started to course through the air (and your clothes!). The solution is simple and allows you to get the best of both worlds. Welcome to the world of layering.
Don’t be afraid to throw on that simple white v-neck or surfer-style tank top in the colder months of fall. Leave these pieces in your wardrobe as the base layers of your more bundled up look. We’ve provided you with some of our favorite base pieces and how to pair them with what’s to come in the upcoming season.
Like we said before, tank tops and simple tees can take part in more than one season, and layering them with the right colder-weather clothes makes all the difference. You’ll stand out as someone who knows how to pair summer with fall and the unexpected with the necessary.
Take your basics:
These tops are perfect for one of the sweaters we featured in last week’s article, or feel free to head into a more funky direction and slip on a sleek blazer to counteract the casual vibe of your shirt.
Scarves are always in no matter the season, and men shouldn’t consider them off-limits or simply for women’s fashion. So show off your style confidence and wrap yourself up in a burgundy or grey hue to add some spunk to your look.
If you want to take the layered look even further, combine all three options by donning a simple tank or tee with a sweater or zip-up, finished off with a blazer and scarf. Insta-stylish!
Now you have all the ingredients to create a perfectly layered fall outfit using pieces from your summer wardrobe! Don’t be afraid to experiment with textures and colors as well, and feel free to double up on the trends we’ve mentioned above. It’s called layering for a reason!
