Fall Outfit Inspo: Light Layering

Here in the mid-Atlantic, the leaves are changing and fall is supposedly here. But every third day or so, it chilly enough in the morning to foreshadow the winter, and it still gets just warm enough to make me miss the summer. So today's post is all about balancing the two using a bit of light layering! One layering piece, especially in transitional seasons, can both keep you warm and change up your entire look. It's like having two chic outfits in one! Three popular layering pieces this fall include vests, leather jackets and ponchos.

Vest

Vests are really fun pieces for fall that can keep your surprisingly warm. Layer a suede and leather vest over a knitted maxi dress for an interesting play on textures.

River Island Dress: $70 // H&M Vest: $50 // Rag & Bone Hat: $295 // Alfani Earrings: $21// Lauren Ralph Lauren Bag: $178 // Topshop Boots: $120

Leather Jacket

Every man, woman and child need a leather jacket and preferably this exact one from Zara. Without the jacket, the light and breezy fabrics can keep you cool during the warm afternoons. With the jacket present, the outfit turns a simple outfit very badass and very warm.

Zara Draped Blouse: $70 // Zara Leather Jacket: $189 // River Island Joggers: $24 // LC Lauren Conrad Ear Jacket: $8 // NARS Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in Mysterious Red: $24// Rebecca Minkoff Clutch: $90 similar here // Zara Flats: $50

Poncho

This season, ponchos and wraps are a huge trend that hits the warmth level right between the vest and the leather jacket. It's very easy to toss on and pull off and gives a hint of sophistication to even an all denim outfit.

Current/Elliot Chambray Shirt: $188 // H&M Poncho: $30 // River Island Jeans: $80 // Yves Saint Laurent Rouge Pur Couture Lipstick in Nude: $27 // Merona Suede Bucket Handbag: $100 // Miss Selfridge's Nude Snake Court Shoes: $68

How are you layering this fall?
