Baby, It’s Cold Outside: Layer Up!

Layers For those of you on the East Coast, we assume you’re well aware of the recent temperature drop we’ve been experiencing. The weather has been crisp, cool, fresh and an all-around perfect fall season as of yet. If you haven’t already done so, it’s officially time to break out your layering pieces.

Oh, layering. Where do we even begin? We think of layering as a type of art. If done properly, you can look so effortless and chic like you quickly threw together this masterpiece of an outfit. Someone will always pay you that compliment of, “Oh my god you look so cute today!” and the response is generally, “Really?!! I just threw it on and ran out the door.”

Bottom line: once you know how to properly layer your garments the outcome will always be compliment-worthy. We put together four different layered-up outfits for daily situations all girls encounter.

Watch the video to see how we layer up! (more…)
