Many trends originate on the runway via a trickle-down effect, while some arise purely out of practicality, and may even find themselves trickling up to the catwalk.
As we know, the transition from winter to spring can be a challenging time to get dressed due to its unpredictable weather patterns, and we often find ourselves needing to get creative for a solution. Sure enough, one of those very solutions was seen everywhere during Fashion Month in February from New York to Paris – and that was layering. Layering in early spring may be somewhat of a no-brainer, however, these were not your average layers, but rather turtlenecks under blouses, and trousers under dresses. This trend trickled both up and down, rearing its head both on the streets and the runway, inspiring us to tap into unconventional layering a little further. We took a look at a few different of the different ways this eccentric trend can be your new go-to.
Ever purchased a new Spring/Summer piece that you’re just dying to wear but it’s not warm enough yet? One of our favorite layering tricks to employ is throwing a simple turtleneck under a dress or blouse, giving you the best of both worlds – fresh new style with added warmth.
Dress It Up or Down
This layering hack not only assists with us with volatile weather but creates outfit versatility. By layering a more elevated piece with an otherwise casual look, you can be ready to go from the coffee shop to an art opening, all with one simple shift.
Spice It Up
Coco Chanel once said,“Before you leave the house, look in the mirror and take at least one thing off.”
With this trend, however, we give you permission to do the opposite. Sometimes adding just one piece of a different color palette or print can be that extra ingredient to turn an outfit from standard to stylish, and we encourage mixing patterns and silhouettes – there are no rules.
