Layering jackets and coats is not a style skill that you need daily but if you’re going to indulge, here are some of the ways of how you do it without looking bulky or random. Apart from being cold, which is then out of necessity, layering jackets should happen when the combination of no more than two jackets or coats creates your final desired look. It is then done best when the two jackets are of similar colours or tones. Unless you’re layering black on leopard or colour-blocking for example. In order to add some interest to your look, go for jackets with varying textures, lengths and sleeve lengths.
I chose this outfit for fashion stylist pulls because running around in a hectic week means stylish and comfortable looks. So with a little chill in the air, the sleeveless trench coat which is a faithful wardrobe staple, added length. While the cropped leather jacket layered underneath gave the look an edgy feel. The trench coat originally had long sleeves which I cut-off last year. Doing this not only added more wear time but gave the coat a completely new look without any added cost. In order to broke up the black outfit, I wore bold blue cropped trousers and a waist belt. Then to complete the look with more texture and comfort, I wore black studded slippers.
LAYERING STYLE OPTIONS
Another look where I layer two jackets for great style effect is how to wear all black by adding a quilted jacket over a cropped jacket. There is also the option to layer leather jackets for the cool factor as shown in how to wear pastel pink. One last great styling alternative would be layering a tailored coat on top of a blazer, which would give a great sophisticated look overall.
