You know, I really dislike those shirts that are made to look layered, but it's all one piece... do you know what I'm talking about? They're supposed to look like a baby tee with a long sleeve top underneath. *GAG*

most people wear underwear on a daily basis...it's not exactly a fashion statement...
They do? How strange...

I was layering the pink vest with the white ribbed tank yesterday...kind of the gay gigolo look...

This was a trend a few years ago, and I didn't wear it then.

I think layering in the style of the new tanks (ie, gap & C&C) are cute, but only certain people can pull it off. I saw some pictures of Hilary Duff with layered C&C tops, and it just made her look BIG. Sometimes, it can be cute, though.

I was on the Olsen thread and I noticed some nice layering there.

Here is some layering of two tank tops (the simple kind that some of you seem to like). I actually like it here, too, mostly because of the way it works with the bracelets and things. I dunno, it just appeals.

Here's some other layering that I just love. I want a blazer like that one! I know that I'd wear it all the time. I adore both outfits (and yes, I know that Mary-Kate's isn't really layered, but it was in the photo and it's cute ).

There are other examples on the thread, but those are two of my favorites.

I've tried to layer my clothes but I think it's more comfortable just to wear one shirt at a time. I've always been like that...

Though I have worn t-shirt over a long sleeved shirt to class in the winter but I usually pick more exciting/contrasting colours.

sweater dilemma - layering
How do you guys wwear your sweaters? I usually like to layer underneath by wearing a button down shirt or something to add some thickness cuz im skinny. There are a few jcrew sweaters i want to get but i cant decide if i should buy them in small or medium. The smalls are a little tighter what should i buy if im goign to layer?

Maybe you should buy one of each size?

for layering I would tend to go for the smaller size...since they're likely to be shorter and it's nice to have the bottom of the under layer peeking out.

The Art of Layering
Can we talk about layering?..

a lot of people here do it very well...
and many people do it in unexpected ways...
ie-helena puts things on top of other things that i would never even think of...
susie b.-puts layers on top of layers...
etc...etc...

i do it myself sometimes...
but there are times that i find it really difficult to find the right shapes...
or i feel like the layers shift throughout the day and i am a rumpled mess before long...
plus i don't actually want to add 'thickness'...if you know what i mean...

**can some of our members please share any style tips about successful ways to layer...

all you girls really seem to be good at this and i am just looking for any tips you can provide to doing this successfully...
examples...
-are there any materials that are better suited for this?...
-any fabrics or shapes that are better under or over?...
-what about armholes?...(sometimes too many layers feels like wearing a straightjkt)..
-how do you keep from getting all dishevelled?...

**and anything else you guys can think of...
....

THANKS for sharing!!...

i got some dark gunmetal- green silk from a fabric store and i cut it up hankerchief style and tied the ends together and you can create make shift aprons (layered over clothes) or multi-scarves without sewing ... ;P
