Layering Basics

Hey ladies! It’s November and I successfully made it through my month of no shopping, whoo hoo!! You’d think I’d be to ready to run and hit the ‘purchase’ button on all of my shopping carts, but surprisingly, I’m doing alright. I did place one order because there was a sale, but all in all it was fun exploring and shopping my closet over the past month and I plan on continuing that trend in the coming months.

I know so much of the talk around fall is about layering, layering and more layering! Granted, much of that is thanks to vests, jackets, sweaters, scarves and other cold weather accessories, but when it comes to layering it’s always good to start with a great base. And in this case, I’m referring to base as the shirt or tee that you use as your first layer. When you find that adorable sweater or beautiful blanket scarf you need to first make sure that you have the appropriate pieces to pair with them in order to make your outfit feel complete. Today I’ve gathered a dozen of my picks for you to consider for your base layer. Although solids are a must in your wardrobe, it’s also fun to keep various prints (stripes are obviously one of my favorites) and colors on hand as well. That camel moto jacket would look great with a white tee, but just imagine it paired with a striped mustard turtleneck…that would take it to a whole new level. What about having a touch of lace peeking out from one of your sweaters? Or consider throwing a burgundy tee under a blush cardi to create a beautiful, soft and feminine look. I could throw out a million different variations here, but take a look into your own closet and reconsider the way you’ve been pairing things. The switch of a few basic pieces could easily help transform your wardrobe with a considerably small investment!
