Crescent’s Guide to Expertly Layering Your Outfits

Learning how to layer clothing allows you to maximize your minimalist wardrobe. Of course, there are no rules when it comes to deciding how to layer outfits, as fashion is a very personal thing. However, building a capsule wardrobe with some specific layerable and transitional pieces allows you to create a variety of outfits even using just a few wardrobe staples. Here are a few of our favorite ways to expertly layer your outfits.

1. Blazers

If you’ve never owned one, you might be surprised by how versatile blazers can be. Pair them with a lace cami, knit tank, or bralette for a relaxed yet refined look. One of the best parts of learning how to layer clothing is being able to style your outfit for specific occasions. Blazers are notorious for being incredibly adaptable, as they can be dressed both up or down.

2. Cardigan Sets

Our cardigan sets are amazing for layering. You get two complementary pieces in the same neutral tones, so you can wear them together or pair them with a different piece for some contrast. Cardigans are already perfect for layering on their own, and having that second companion piece lets you effortlessly pull an outfit together without much thinking.

3. Sweater Vests

While learning how to expertly layer clothing, don’t overlook classic pieces like sweater vests. After all, part of discovering how to layer outfits is unlocking the full potential of simple pieces. Sweater vests are great because they allow you to play with statement collars and sleeves with a button-up for a preppy look, or you can even wear a tee or tank top underneath if you want a more casual aesthetic.

4. Denim Jackets

Finally, a timeless piece that works great all year round — the denim jacket. We recommend one with an oversized boyfriend fit. As you explore how to layer clothing, you’ll find that it helps to have some oversized and some figure-fitting pieces. Blending them provides more of a cohesive look, and you’ll feel more comfortable. A denim jacket is an iconic accessory that can pair with a tee or cami on warm days and a sweater or hoodie on chilly nights.
