I really like how this is coming back for winter in a much more polished way.....

Not too "Olsen twin" style (cause they ruined it), but really more demure and elegant. I like the very graceful layering they did at Veronique Branquinho and Ackermann. Not too chunky, almost delicate!

I'd like people to post streetstyle pics for a little fall preview to see how they're doing the layering for real.

... Great for some inspiration.

I don't understand layering... in WARMER weather (unless you live in a place that has average highs of 75 or lower). It's fine in colder times, but not very good in Spring or Summer heat. It took me a while to get into femmes wearing shrugs and boleros with tops as far as layering goes. I said in the past that layering is just trying too hard and overdressing. Who wants to overdress and be an absolute mess? I haven't seen too many good layering examples except for wearing shrugs and boleros over tops. I just think it's overdressing. Only exception of overdressing I liked was when a lady at my school went all black with a top, late '90s-esque stretch pants, boots, and a long sweater duster. There was, of course, what I voted as one of the Worst Trends of 2006 or so- leggings under skirts. This, too, was a case of, "why?" As if I hated leggings under denim skirts with Converses, this was just an eyesore for some time. The beauty of skirts (especially minis) being ruined all in an attempt to overdress. I don't get it. Over time, I still got to like shrugs and even leggings under skirts (though it took me a while).

I don't understand layering in warmer weather. Maybe with lighter garments it's okay. But layers are for Fall and Winter ONLY for me. Maybe some cold Spring days if you're lucky. So the most basic layering I'm okay with would be wearing a top with a skirt, and adding a shrug sweater worn over the top and leggings under the skirt. Most other layering jobs are just overdressing without any real continuity(?). That is, unless the layering jobs are like the ones in Post #46. °Me gusta the layering in Post #46!

It is much more elegant these days...
It is much less noticeable...
& you rly do have to be observant & keen
to realize the layering...
Kinda like an enigma...
or beautiful puzzle...

I definitely think the fabrics are the trick to pull this off during summer.. and this is coming from someone who lives by the desert and does deal with severe heat for a good part of the year.. I am a thousand miles away from the middle east or africa but I actually find their way of dressing as an inspiration when it comes to layering.. Dries Van Noten has executed a good amount of examples that were originated there where it's basically just linen over linen.. and I absolutely love that, I find it a lot more refreshing and comfortable than doing the usual approach of taking it all off.. which is highly limiting and not roomy enough for air.

Dries (expect an overload! )
