It's easy to think about layering as adding jackets and cardi's and long layers on top...but layering also includes long layers under shorter ones. It's something I loooove and do often. Clearly, Renee and Brie agree too :). They're showing off two iterations of the look in a recent Insta pic. Renee has gone playful with a classic white shirt (think oxford-cloth, broadcloth or fine woven cotton) layered under a cropped polka dot sweater. The dots on the top piece pull this classically chic shirt into lighthearted frivolity. Ripped jeans keep things on the less serious side (you could do this with a non-distressed jean too - just go for a slouchy boyfriend style, instead of a slim cut), while pointy-toe pumps add a dash of fierce and make a statement: "Yeah, I like to have fun, but don't forget, I'm still a fashionista!" ;) Renee finished her look with the nude shade of heel she's been favoring lately, but a black heel or a color that echoes one of the polka dot shades would be lovely as well. Brie's look is much more laidback, as she layers a plaid shirt under a graphic "Peace Love Yoga" sweatshirt. Skinny jeans and hiking boots complete her outfit. I love the pop of red underneath the white - this is where layering longer pieces underneath works fabulously because it carries the color through the ensemble, without being overdone. I also love contrasting formal and informal pieces so, while you could replicate Brie's look with a classic plaid blouse and a fun sweatshirt, you could also throw a curveball and do this look with a bright silk shirt- for a touch of drapey formality- and a lace sweatshirt. Full-on lace will work, as will a piece merely accented with lace (or crochet! :) ). Like Brie, I've chosen skinny/slim jeans here for a more polished look and kept the finish casual with hiking boots. The vibe of the tough boot against the soft silk and feminine artistry of the lace is a play that totally rocks my world! Hope it rocks yours too :) Happy styling!
