8 steps to style con­fi­dence

These lay­er­ing tricks will help you get the most from your wardrobe

Woman (UK) - - This Isssue -

Play with lengths

mix lengths and choose items with in­ter­est­ing cut-away de­tails. a cropped jumper and longer shirt are a clas­sic com­bi­na­tion.

Un­ex­pected pair­ings

We love the dress over trousers combo – the ad­di­tion of jeans makes a smarter dress you’d nor­mally save for best more ca­sual and keeps legs cov­ered un­til it warms up.

Don’t stop at clothes

del­i­cate gold chains will al­ways be in style – you can eas­ily achieve this look with a multi-strand neck­lace.

In­vest in a trench

a light­weight coat is great for wear­ing over ev­ery­thing, in­clud­ing denim jack­ets and blaz­ers. it’s a great so­lu­tion when it’s too warm for a heavy win­ter cover-up.

Roll with it

a light­weight roll­neck is a key lay­er­ing piece. Wear un­der dresses, jump­suits, and shirts for ex­tra in­ter­est and warmth.

Skirt around

Front-split or wrap skirts are flat­ter­ing when worn with a big shirt tucked in. or try over a longer shirt dress if you don’t want to show off too much leg.

Belt it

a belt holds to­gether lay­ered sep­a­rates and cinches in the waist.

Go sleeve­less

This style of jacket works for all sea­sons, de­pend­ing on what you layer un­der and over it, and can eas­ily be dressed up or down.
