Continuing on with the top ten trends for fall, I will be focusing on trend two, the layered look. Designers were piling on the layers on the runway and topping it all off with a waist-cinching, hour-glass making belt. Don’t be afraid to mix and match different colors, patterns, textures and fabrics to create this sophisticated, grown-up, somewhat boho look. To keep from adding too much weight keep your layers slim and well fitted, like a lightweight billowy silk top under a fitted cardigan sweater paired with a slim pencil skirt, tights and heels, and don’t forget the belt to remind people you have a waist under all the layers. Try this look with fitted, cropped jackets and keep your belt up at your natural waist as opposed to worn slung low in seasons past. Mix it up for fall and Get Layered!
