I’m one of those people that run cold easily. I have to be in 85F or higher heat with no a/c to think about sporting a short sleeve top and a bottom, with no additional layers. This means, I’ve learned how to layer for a wide range of temperatures. These are my favorite ways to layer for fall weather, right now that means 60-70F during the day and 50-55 for most evenings. I’m going to begin with my mid weight layering knits recently added from the boutique as examples of my favorite layers for fall weather. I’m also going to include a few other items from my fall/winter wardrobe.
For fall weather my favorite way to layer is like a sandwich. I have 3 layers, which are centered around the ‘meat’ or middle item. I use the middle item as my focal point, the item I build the rest of the outfit around. By layering with 3 items, I am able to add some warmth while it is chilly, but I can remove a layer if necessary. I also find that layered outfits have visual interest.
Sandwich Layers = Topper Item + Middle Item + Bottom Item
For the first 3 layers, the mid weight knit is constant.
Blazer + Mid Weight Knit + Tank Top
Jacket + Mid Weight Knit + LS T
Mid Weight Knit + Button Down Shirt + Tank Top
Layering could also focus on a button down shirt as the repeat item for each look.
Jacket + Knit Top + Button Down Shirt
Cardigan + Button Down Shirt + LS T
Button Down Shirt + Mid Weight Knit + Tank Top
When the weather drops a bit further, I’ll swap the tank tops for LS Ts or the LS T’s for thermals.
How many layers do you sport for fall?
