MONDAY MOOD: LAYERING FOR SPRING

Spring brings with a lot of weather tease: one day it will be a scorcher and the next day it will appear to be sunny but the real feel would be chilling.  Under such circumstances dressing becomes a little tricky, and so having a blazer or jacket on hand becomes a must. Truth be told: I am not a cardigan kind of person,  I would choose a jacket over a cardigan/sweater any day. Hence my closet has a bountiful jacket options but despite :'I never seem to have enough.'

Recently, while browsing through H&M's website, I came across this suede kimono- now a true gem in my closet. The color, the fit and the feel is beyond wow. I fell in love with it at the first glance and rest is history. Anyways the agenda for today is : HOW TO LAYER FOR SPING ???- when cardigan is not an option. ...just kidding. This whole layering shebang need not be boring- just a few tips up your sleeves, and you've layered in the most stylish way.





suede kimono - H&M ( love the laser-cut detailing on this one  )
bow chambray blouse- Ann Taylor, buy same ( option with a waist tie )
denim- Gap, buy same  ( another great option )
earrings- ShoeDazzle ( similar )


  • When layering for spring: consider the three-piece rule- the top, the outer layer and then the outermost layer.   Wear your normal blouse ( preferably full sleeves ), then a lightweight knit and throw on the final layer for that extra toasty feeling. A trench coat is by-far the chicest way to layer. 
  • Kimono's are another stylish way to stay warm and at the same time amp the glam quotient of any look. Look for pieces that are seasonal- one's with fun prints,  with little details and in fabrics like suede, viscose and other spring-friendly weaves.
  • Another strategic way to layer is to wear jackets and or sweaters over maxi dresses. This way you double up the warmth and not the bulk, and still look sophisticated.  
  • Not feeling the sweater thingy: not a problem?? Layer a dress over a top, a dress over a knit turtleneck or even a top over a top, and you are ready to offset  all those spring weather woes.  
  • Last but not the least:  use your accessories esp. necklaces and scarves to up your spring-outfit-game. A printed scarf or a pashmina is a yes any day. It not only will keep you balmy, but will also serve the purpose of adding interest to any look.
So don't panic, just follow the above guideline and  you'll thank me for all those compliments ....
