As summer departs and autumn approaches, the perfect time has come to begin planning for styling that creates warmth and makes outfits all the more interesting. Creative layers are all the rage this Fall, as designers introduce the next evolution of layering through jumper inspired dresses. The result is a chic, sophisticated version of the timeless one-piece garment once reserved for preparatory school girls.
Simple yet easily transformed when thrown together with other items to form a more complex outfit, jumpers are a favorite when it comes to mixing and matching. A variety of tops, shoes, and accessories can all be combined to achieve that perfect look. For an eye-catching look that can’t be easily replicated, experiment with blouses, shirts, turtlenecks, trousers, shorts, or a dress that’s already in your wardrobe. The result is a unique look that’s both fresh yet consistently loyal to your personal style.
To avoid looking too cloying, be wary of patterns, material, and, of course, fit. One of the most popular and functional ways designers showcased the jumper trend was through layering turtlenecks and long-sleeved tops under cropped tops and sleeveless dresses. A belt can add some definition and structure while a translucent, lace, or ruffled top can add some romanticism and mystique. This Fall, up your layering game with playful, sophisticated, and contemporary combinations featuring your new favorite jumper inspired ensemble.
