LAYERS & LAYERS

Can you believe how time flies?! OMFG..I cannot believe we are about to welcome April in JUST a few days. The very verrrrry beginning of Spring is the perfect time to up your layering game. It's always chilly in the mornings and then of course by noon..it's time to start shedding layers..literally.  I am a huge huge fan of the trend that will not ever quit: The layered look and it's the most appropriate time for you to take some notes girlinas.  Layering is a modern cool- girl staple . Under, over, no matter how you decide to wear it, this is more of  a styling trick than anything, and one that is timeless with the right direction. It's so easy to wear!

Many women are afraid to layer their clothes for fear of looking bigger than they actually are. While logic would lead one to believe that this claim is true, if you have mastered the art of layering this couldn't be further from the truth. A perfectly layered look will compliment your curves and create the illusion of a more proportional silhouette. 

Quick Layering Tips:

Keep the under-layers more fitted to keep your shape looking slim.
If you’re concerned about your waistline, try to top off your look with something belted.
Length and proportion is key when layering. 
Play with texture. It’s best to incorporate a mix of materials when styling a layered look. If you use all of the same fabrics, you’re look will come off as heavy and dowdy (which can add the appearance of unwanted weight as well).
Have fun with it...especially with special unique pieces in your closet that you have zero idea how to wear it...like that gorgeous strapless top you purchased at a sample sale.
