14 new ways to layer ahead! »

Summertime might seem like an odd time to broach the topic of layers but hear us out. Unlike winter when the weather ranges from cold to colder and your winter boots and leather leggings are a safe bet, summer can be a bit tricky when it comes to outfit planning. Cold nights with days ranging between sweltering and monsoon-like or downright chilly, layers seem to be the perfect answer to our everyday wardrobe conundrums. Layering up our wardrobe is going to be our secret weapon when it comes to standing out, practically, this season.

We’re talking about new ways to pile on the clothes, like the ultra-inventive dress over pants look or the complicatedly chic skirt, over jeans, over a shirt. It’s all about layering up your pieces in new ways, affording you endless options. So unlike Rihanna’s CDFA barely-there dress, less is not more this time around—more is more.
