Two Creative Ways To Layer For Spring

Ok, layering isn't a new thing especially in these parts but let's be real we're constantly doing it regardless of the weather. It's only natural, so for this week's post with Jackie, we're talking creative ways to layer our look to get the most out of you spring wardrobe.

We'll start with me and my outfit. It's no secret that I'm currently favoring the added texture that dresses over denim brings to a look. But there is some method to the layering to keep it from looking overly heavy on top and frumpy. Yes, you want it to be fun and creative but there are some rules you might want to follow when recreating similar styles. First off, pick a jean with a little bit of a cropped hemline - you want to be able to see some skin and definition at the bottom. I love these kick flares because they're more fitted at the waist and thighs but have tiny flare at the hemline to keep it interesting. Next, the dress for layering - you want something that either defines your waist or has an interesting hemline, like my floral dress with the high-low ruffle hemline. Keep in mind: you don't want to go too oversized. Since I wanted to keep it colorful I added a pair of contrasting heels to make it REALLY pop. 

Now, Jackie's layering is the most classic form of layering but it doesn't make it any less relevant. Adding a chambray top over a dress is the best way to mix up wears and create new outfits. I love that she kept it casual with sneakers and a cute crossbody. It makes it perfect for heading into the weekend, which is supposed to be in the 70˚'s!
