3 Tips for Layering With Adding Bulk

by Miss Venus

Dressing with layers is key in our neck of the woods. Chilly mornings often lead to mild afternoons and then we’re back to bundling up by dinner time, but there is a trick to layering without bulking up. SoLa is here to give you a few great ideas for ways to layer your look without looking bulky.

Our first outfit showcases Kate as our “Mod in the City” ensemble. Look casual chic with a classic twist of on-trend gauchos, slouchy over the knee boots, and sleek bodysuit. To start off, you want your foundation piece to be fitted, then layer your pieces. This ensures you have a slim silhouette that will be highlighted after you add your layers. It’s also very versatile as you can easily transition if things heat up. A pop of color goes a long way, so try keeping your palette neutral and add a must-have color of the season, such as lilac, cardigan to complete this effortless basic to trendy outfit that has you desk to holiday party ready.

Natalie with Ginger Me Glam, is showcasing our second look, Holiday Street Style. Another great way to layer without adding too much volume is using a vest. This sleeveless trench vest, a blogger favorite, is a fabulous way to take your style game to the next level. Keep it simple with a cable knit sweater and classic denim. For the novice, your frame can be overwhelmed with this much material but try tying the belt to back which will define your waist, leaving a slimming line in the front to showcase your outfit. To further elongate your frame, try adding a lariat necklace or layer several long necklaces. This will only amplify the slimming lines of your outfit and have you feeling six feet tall. Finish up the look with block heel booties that are comfy, cozy, and a fresh step in the holiday spirit.

Last, Coral shows you the importance of mixing fitted with oversized pieces with a sleeveless sweater top paired with a thin, long sleeved shirt, and a fitted pencil skirt. Mixing fitted and oversized pieces in a variety of fabrics adds a spice of life to any outfit. With on trend colors such as olive green, berries, navy, and mustard yellow, pair in neutrals or prints with matching complementary colors. Create your own remix of casual, modern style without abandoning your statement jewelry and favorite boots. You can always add patterned knee-high socks to give a fun pop without the added layer of tights or keep it simple and chic with pointelle or textured socks.
