Right now we’re in full blown spring weather, complete with frequent rain showers, so I’m taking full advantage of the cool temperatures and pulling out all my layering pieces. And although sometimes I can get a little crazy with the layers, the simplest ones are always my favorite because they give off such an effortless vibe while still looking chic and pulled together.
Here’s how to wear it. Start with a basic button up, like a chambray (my favorite casual top). You could exchange this for a tee, but the button up will keep it from being so casual. A pretty blouse is also a good alternative here. Then layer with a jacket. I went for an oversized utility style one because oversized maintains that effortless feel, but you could do a leather jacket or a short wool coat if the weather is cold. Since my top layers are so simple, I went for a more unexpected and bold pants choice — leather leggings — but jeans are a good option too. Try black, white, regular blue denim, or a super distressed pair.
Now that you have all the main components of your outfit, it’s time to accessories, because these final touches are the pieces that will make an outfit feel complete. Since it was a chilly day when I wore this, I went for a cute hat, and then finished my look with an animal print bag and flats. You could also try a brightly colored bag for a statement, or a stack of bracelets.
The key is to not overdo it, and to make it look effortless. Because simple and effortless is always in style!
