Before we know it summer has come to an end, but who says you can’t wear your summer essentials all-year around? As Fall approaches, we often find ourselves wrapped up in our coziest sweaters and calling it a day. As comfy as that sounds, Fall is the time to be experimental with your wardrobe and layer up like a fashion pro! It’s time to create brand new outfits by layering your favourite summer pieces.
The Le Mill team have rounded up a few trends that will help you master the art of layering so you don’t end up looking like Joey Tribbiani from that episode of FRIENDS.
Scroll on to read quick layering tips and check out our recommendations for key pieces which will help you get started on your Fall looks.
A Monochrome Moment
Dressing head-to-toe in a Raquel Allegra tie-dye or Gauge81 monochrome look can instantly elevate your OOTD. If you’re feeling a bit more adventurous, try mixing different textures or adding a pop of color as a mid-layer.
Layering chains is the new way you can make a statement with your jewellery. To avoid knotting, begin your layered look with a simple chain and add pendant style necklaces from the metal of your choice. Keep it effortlessly chic by mixing chains of different lengths, thickness and styles. Pro tip: Make your masterpiece interesting by adding coloured stones, corals and pearls. To build your personalised look this season, add these dainty pieces from Le Mill to your existing jewellery collection.
The Ring Stack
When it comes to stacking rings, we believe the more the better. The best part about wearing rings on all of your fingers is that you can be eccentric and expressive with your accessory collection. Add unique styles, clear and colourful gemstones and chunky metals, to curate an aesthetically-stacked hand full of rings. Don’t forget to finish your curated look with playful nail art!
The Long Sleeve
The long sleeve turtle or crew neck is the perfect entry-level addition to layering. This underrated piece in your wardrobe can simply render all your summer pieces to cozy fall outfits. Add shimmer to your perfect dinner date outfit by pairing the Jonathan Simkhai knit top with a sequin Saint Laurent tank top.
The White Shirt
No wardrobe is complete without the classic white shirt. Spruce up the ultimate closet essential this Fall by layering it under a dress, sweater, bustier top or an oversized shirt. Amongst these endless possibilities, check out a few outfit inspirations from our current collection that will help you reinvent the staple that you've been overlooking.
