Layering tips

This post was an obvious and an appropriate one since we have often been complimented on our 'skills' for layering. Sonu styled this quick shoot for iDiva where she revamps one dress in three ways simply by adding layers.

Look 1: Layer with accessories
  • Pile on necklaces, belts and scarves to make your outfit interesting. Accessories can completely revamp your attire.
  • But make sure not to add too many accessories at the same time. Start off with a belt and earrings or some beads and a tote.

Look 2: Layer with a blazer:
  • One of the simplest yet most rewarding forms of layering is by adding a blazer, vest or even a jacket.
  • If you have a loose tunic or one that doesn't flatter you, add a blazer to give structure.
  • To add an extra something, throw in a scarf to look formal yet chic.

Look 3: Add a skirt or shorts
  • Dresses are versatile, wear them as a tunic over jeggings or wear as a top under a skirt. Just make sure that the skirt has a longer hem than the dress.
  • Make your wardrobe flexible to make the most of what you have.
