How to layer like a street style pro


News from the world of fash­ion

The one item you should add to your wardrobe this sea­son is the light short-sleeved jumper. It does the sar­to­rial job without get­ting you all hot and both­ered in the sum­mer heat. Beau­ti­fully printed short-sleeved jumpers were spot­ted on the run­way of Sal­va­tore Fer­rag­amo.

On this page, we styled one over a longsleeved white but­ton-down. Roll up the sleeves non­cha­lantly to right be­low the el­bows to bal­ance out the rigid­ity of the jumper.

De­tails are im­por­tant in street style fash­ion. Pile on an un­ex­pected el­e­ment in the form of a longer mesh tank top. It helps to make the white shirt ap­pear less for­mal. Fin­ish the look off by cuff­ing your jeans ‒ it’s an easy way of fix­ing a leg that is too long while also adding di­men­sion to the look.

If the pre­vi­ous op­tion is a bit daunt­ing, try start­ing with a colour you know well. The trick is to play around with dif­fer­ent tones of the same colour so that it’s more dy­namic as op­posed to just the same tone of blue from head to toe.

A stylish denim on denim pair­ing is not dif­fi­cult to achieve. But take it up a notch by adding a longline T-shirt un­der­neath. What it does is put a space while act­ing as a vis­ual break be­tween the denim pieces.

Go for a ca­sual jacket that cuts right at the nat­u­ral waist. The key is to en­sure that all the lay­ers are vis­i­ble. While you’re at it, just be sure the jacket doesn’t go on too snugly or you risk look­ing like you’re sport­ing a pe­plum. Cuff up the sleeves to show hints of the shirt sleeves. And if the ends of the jeans look a bit worn, fold them up slightly to ex­pose that de­tail.
