Fashion: Layering 101

Hello loves! Lauren here.

Cannot wait to see what this year has in store, especially when it comes to fashion.

And I thought, what better way to kick off the New Year than a little Styling 101? Let's start 2012 with lots of layers. Mix and match, try new things, step out of your comfort zone. It's a new year, so why not? Hope this little step by step style guide helps lead you to take a little style plunge!

Great post Lauren! I think layering is a skill that any woman needs to have in her bag of tricks, especially one that lives in a place with fickle weather.

Such a great step-by-step! I am finally living somewhere that isn't 100 degrees all year long so I can finally layer! This gives me some great ideas; thanks!

Victoria- I would suggest pairing the pale blue vest with maybe a black and white striped tee, and a maxi skirt in maybe grey or black! :)

Love Lauren, and she did not disappoint in this post! So many fabulous layering options. I particularly enjoy layering stripes of different sizes. I may apply that to polka dots too.
