Layers You Can Wear In And Out Of The Office
An added layer can sometimes be that one item that instantly elevates your outfit. For those times you feel like your outfit is missing something, an easy solution is to add on a layer. Your choice in layers will give your look a more personal touch and a little flare.
While you’re busy focusing on what winter basics to add into your wardrobe that you can easily mix and match with each other, those pieces that really exude your personal style or those pieces that you can’t easily pair with other items get forgotten. The last thing you want to do is add in pieces that you think you’ll struggle to wear, so you skip over them. Or, you add them in and then never wear them.
But that’s easy to avoid when you’ve taken the time to add in your wardrobe basics, the pieces that are an instant match to every item in your closet. All of those one-time wears, items you’ve purchased and never worn to the new pieces you add in - your basics will pair with them all!
It makes shopping a little more enjoyable because you know no matter what you add in, you’ll have plenty of options already to create different outfits around it.
