How to Do Layering in Spring Season


With warm days and cool nights in the forecast, it’s time to step up your layering game. We welcome the transition from winter to spring, but dressing for fickle weather is challenging, if not downright baffling. Well, challenge accepted. Naturally, when it comes to layering in spring, it should provide the right amount of insulation to protect us from chilly breezes, but shouldn’t let us overheat. Take a look at some of the layering options which will work this spring.

The Power of Cropped Top

A cropped top can easily be considered as a layering piece. Whether your figure is plus size or petite, layering with a cropped top is easy. As all it takes is only a slim-fit blouse – or even a peplum top – and a contrasting cropped top worn over the blouse to create more dimension. Pair the top combo with a pair of skinnies to create a more streamlined silhouette. You can also wear the cropped top underneath another layering piece, such as a long vest or jacket. Besides this, you can make a combo of three layering pieces for a chillier day.

Go for an Oversized Sweater Over Dress

Speaking of an oversized sweater, if you thought you could only wear this sweater with skinny jeans, you might need to push your thinking today with this versatile garment. Try pulling off this staple with a dress – mini, maxi, a summer dress or a slip dress – underneath to keep it youthful or give it a little edgy and grunge touch by pairing it with boxy booties.

Layering with a Denim Jacket

This staple is such a fabulous basic and unlike most items in our closet, it actually can work for all four seasons. Compared with other button-front shirts, chambray is definitely more substantial in weight. During the cooler days, use your chambray as a go-to layering tool. And find yourself layering it under all different kinds of sweaters, coats, jackets and cardigans. Or, you can also layer your denim jacket over warm blouse, such as knit tee, turtleneck shirt, or sweater dress. All in all, you can do so much with a basic denim shirt.

Summer Dress Layering is a Goal!

When you see it’s freezing cold outside, don’t toss your summer dress just yet, but simply layer it with a shirt underneath. Wearing a shirt (or a blouse or a tee) underneath your dress not only can make your outfit weather-appropriate but also can transform your look entirely. You could definitely experiment, however, mixing and matching is the best choice ever.

Layering with Trench Coats

Long sleeveless blazers, vests, waistcoats or trenchcoats are probably prime for transitional layering. Always keep your look fresh and light with spring colours and add one of these layering pieces to get you through the indecisive weather. For hot days, layer it with a breezy top and for cooler days, swap it with a more substantial knit. Don’t let spring showers put a damper on your look. Go above and beyond with a crisp shirt and a timeless trench.

Up Your Layering Game with Boots

Boots are the best staple to go for in cold weather. Adding boots to the outfit elevates the look completely apart from keeping you warm. Be it flat, over-the-knee, heeled or ankle — there is a boot-to-go with every outfit. You can go with a short skirt and top look and pair it up with long boots for the best results.

So, layering is the best advice for this spring season. Go slay girls!
