August 20th, 2019 by Jennifer Beile 6 Fresh Layering Trends to Inspire Your Fall Wardrobe

As we prepare to say goodbye to summer, it’s finally time to start planning your fall wardrobe. It’s no wonder that fall is a fashion girl’s favorite season for getting dressed! The chilly temperatures mean that we are finally able to plan full outfits for the sake of style, and not for fending off sweltering temperatures or, on the other side of the spectrum once winter comes, freezing and frigid weather. One of the more fun aspects of fall fashion is playing with layering, which admittedly, can become stale without a bit of inspiration.

If you’re stuck on throwing a cardigan or a sweater over your outfit, look no further than below for fresh layering trends to inspire your fall wardrobe.

Wear Two Fall Trends at Once

Double Down on Outerwear

Two jackets are better than once during the frigid chill of the fall weather. The trick to pulling off this look is to play with different fabrics, textures, and silhouettes.

Throw Your Summer Dress Over Jeans

Not quite ready to put your summer dresses away? Throw your favorite lightweight dress over a pair of jeans to give them a new life and a little extra wear.

Add a Layer Under Your Jumpsuit

My favorite year-round piece is a versatile jumpsuit and I love playing with layering when it gets colder. We all know how difficult it would be to layer too heavy on top of a jumpsuit, so put a layer underneath for a little extra warmth.

Never Underestimate Basics

A long sleeve tee will be your most versatile layering piece for the early days of fall. Layer it under a blouse, slip dress, your sweaters, etc.

Lightweight Layering for Warmer Climates

If you live in a warmer climate like me and yearn for layering but it’s still warm, throw a lightweight linen top over your dresses to change up your look for the new season.
