This has been a busy week, full of surprises and emotions. Today I experimented with layering, not just with clothing pieces but also with necklaces!
Layering clothing is more common and somewhat obvious with this particular ensemble. In the transitional period -which I realize should be over by now or at least towards the end- it is somewhat hard to dress for the temperature. That is where layering comes in handy! I layered the Forever 21, trench vest over a crisp white button down, and red, Mossimo trousers.
The trench vest adds an additional layer of warmth in the morning hours, when it is much cooler and necessary. Once it warms up, I took off the trench vest, and the rest of the ensemble is just as dynamic on its' own. I also love the contrast between the blush color of the trench vest and the red in the trousers!
The additional layering is in the accessories, specifically the statement necklaces I chose. Styling necklaces can be tricky, and I will elaborate on that another time, but for this particular post I chose two pieces; a bold, black necklace and a lighter, Versona necklace. I love the way the blue in the Versona necklace contrasts and stands out against the black of the other necklace.
I opted to keep it tucked under the white blouse so as not to distract from the overall ensemble. This also creates a peek-a-boo effect that is alluring and adds additional detail to the outfit without overwhelming it.
Thank you for reading and I hope this helps! Have a great weekend! =)
