What to Wear // Basic Layering

Who says fall wasn't easy to fall into. Like any other blogger would say I love the fall because it's layering season. But let's be real, it's the time where we're finding everything and anything to wear because we just want to stay warm. Especially living in New York City, it gets really cold and the weather jumps from warm to cold all through the ending months. 

Which means we have to be prepared. Layering is not that hard honestly. It's all about finding basic key  pieces that will help bring the look together. I will be doing a full post about the top five basic pieces to have to layer in the next week. So, be sure to subscribe to stay up-to-date on latest.

Today, we are focusing on beginner layering. Plain and simple you want to be efficient in the morning when your running late or you have a meeting. Looking for an outfit sometimes have you spending an hour or have you throw on anything just to get out the door. This is no beuno. First, you should always plan ahead. Set aside three looks the night before, so when you wake up you'll be able to pick from those choices you have. 

Basic layering is this, finding pieces that compliment each other. You always want to have two to three layered top, then your outer wear and your bottom should be two to three pieces. Grab you favorite sweater or crop top piece, add a longer button up shirt or blouse underneath. What I enjoy is that it helps you utilize pieces, normally you would have put away for the season. This helps you not only utilize your closet but also save some money. Just because you think you don't have anything to wear doesn't make it true. This is the best time to get creative. Take any sweater, blouse, blazer vest and begin! Go beyond what you do and tailor down to what's comfortable for you.
