As fall moves in, so does the inconsistent weather. Temperatures soar one minute then drop the next, leaving you staring at your wardrobe, stumped with what to wear.
The solution to transitional dressing? Layer up! Not only does it allow you to regulate your temperature (simply pile on the layers and peel away accordingly), but layers also add interest to an outfit and can re-invigorate items that have been relegated to the back of your closet.
Here are three layering tips for transitional weather.
Layering slinky camisoles and slip dresses over tees or long-sleeved shirts is cool again. This effortless styling looks great but is also practical, making us wonder why it ever went out of fashion in the first place. Modernize the look with a pair of raw hem jeans and polish it off with a statement belt and chic boyfriend blazer.

Dresses over pants
Add warmth and interest to an outfit by styling a dress over pants. To nail this look use a dress that skims the body and is not skin tight (so you have room to fit your pants underneath).
The length of the dress is also important. It should sit anywhere between mid-thigh and a bit below your knee. The added bonus with this look is that it make those fancy dresses more suitable for a casual occasion.

Play with proportions
Extend the life of your summer dress by layering long sleeves underneath. While the no-brainer option is to use a simple long sleeve tee, why not use something more unexpected and interesting? Shapes are quite dramatic at the moment, with flares currently trending. I’ve layered this dress over an oversized flared shirt for a different spin on the ordinary.
