Fall Fashion Tip: There’s Magic in Layers!

Fall is upon us, and it’s the season of unpredictable temperatures. Crisp mornings often give way to toasty, sun-filled afternoons, making it difficult to dress for the day.

Wearing layers in the fall is not only practical for staying warm in changing weather but also provides an opportunity to showcase your style. And Goodwill is the perfect place to find a variety of layers to mix and match!

Start with a Good Base Layer

Successful layering starts with a solid foundation. Shop at Goodwill for a comfortable and moisture-wicking base layer. This helps regulate your body temperature and keeps you dry. Keep in mind that as the day wears on, you might remove your outer layers, so be sure to choose a base layer that can stand on its own. 

Variety Leads to a Cohesive Style

In order to create a well-put-together look, you’ll want layers that add interest to your outfit. Combine different fabrics and textures. For example, pair a lightweight cotton shirt with a chunky knit sweater or a denim jacket with a soft flannel shirt.

Choose colors and patterns that complement each other. Neutral colors like black, gray, and beige are versatile and easy to match. You can also add a pop of color with a scarf or accessory.

Choose the Proper Fit

Layering can quickly go awry if you’re not focused on the way each piece fits. Save oversized pieces for the top layer. The other pieces should fit well so they don’t add unnecessary bulk or lumps. Slim-fit or tailored pieces work great for layering.
