8 steps to style confidence
These layering tricks will help you get the most from your wardrobe
Play with lengths
mix lengths and choose items with interesting cut-away details. a cropped jumper and longer shirt are a classic combination.
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.
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.
a belt holds together layered separates and cinches in the waist.
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.
