Layering 101

I love this leopard print sweater and I like to jazz it up with different layering pieces. This faux leather vest helps me channel my inner rocker chick (lol). I may be 34 but age is just a number baby! Never too old for studs. Please also take note I didn’t go with an obvious black shoe. I chose to go with a suede neutral taupe heel.

This is obviously an easy look; a sweater and jeans. When I got this sweater I didn’t love how it was crop-like but I loved the print. Don’t get me wrong I love a crop top when done correctly, but this length is a little more difficult to pull off. I decided to use a textured tank underneath to add dimension and length to the look so that I would feel more comfortable.

This layering technique is a little different in the fact of how I am using two different patterns. I love how the leopard print sleeves act as a peek-a-boo with the oversized sweater. I’m not going to be cold wearing this! This may not be a look for everybody, but maybe it will inspire you to mix patterns or layer sweaters. I view leopard print as a chic, neutral print that can be paired with other prints. I also believe stripes and polka dots operate the same way.

This shows how layering can be purposeful. I took the leopard sweater off and tied it around my waist. I now have a textured tank top that will help cool me down when I might be entering a different climate. I feel like I am NEVER a comfortable temperature so this look works out wonderfully for me.
