Layering clothes in the autumn is a practical approach to transition outfits from warmer to cooler months.

Jessica Goodenough, a fashion blogger, emphasises the value of layering in clothes, combining proportions and textures to show off unique style while adapting to the changing weather.

The blogger suggests ways you can layer up this autumn.

  • Start with a strong foundation: A solid base layer is essential for well-built ensembles. Start with lightweight, breathable tops, such as long-sleeved tees or narrow turtlenecks, for warmth and comfort.
  • Embrace texture diversity: Mix them for visual interest and warmth in your outfit. Combine a knit jumper with a suede jacket or layer a denim shirt over a corduroy skirt for an autumn look.
  • Scarves are versatile: Scarves add warmth and style to autumn outfits. Infinity, blanket, and silky options offer versatile ways to play with colour/pattern.
  • Elegant sweater weather: Layer a shirt under your jumper for a sleek, comfy style. Let the collar peek out for an extra flair.
  • Mini midi skirts/dresses: Choose mini/midi-length for coverage and showcasing footwear.
  • Invest in versatile footwear: Autumn outfits depend on footwear. Ankle boots are versatile and add sophistication to jeans, dresses, and skirts. Opt for knee-high boots or loafers as well.
  • Balance and proportion: Layering is a fashion trend that involves combining various pieces to create a visually appealing and balanced look.

Here are some autumn layers essentials recommended by Women and Health:

  • Cami’s tees (short and long sleeve).
  • Turtlenecks.
  • Skirts.
  • Sweaters.
  • Leather and denim coats.
  • Jackets.
  • Scarves.
  • Socks.
  • Chains.
