I’ll be the first to admit that when it comes to layering, I typically keep it very practical (layering for the weather and not necessarily for looks). Every once in a while I’ll get a little creative — a bodysuit with a jumpsuit, two pairs of tights, and a sweater over a dress more than one time — but for the most part, I stick to a top and a jacket…if outerwear is necessary. Regardless of the reason for wearing more clothes, there’s a new(ish) trend that’s making me think twice about the idea of layering…FOR FUN.
With all of the muted color trends that have been making their way into both our spring / summer and fall / winter wardrobes (blush, camel, greige, etc.), fashion now decides it’s going to punch you in the face with this…
There are many categories when it comes to trends — we have color trends (remember when you couldn’t survive Fall 2012 without oxblood?) there’s silhouette trends (PEPLUM ’13!!) accessory trends (currently: flat mules) and that leads me to today’s trend topic…designer trends, specifically those of the Gucci variety.
Even though we were lucky enough to experience 60 degrees in February over the weekend, I wouldn’t say you should put your winter coats away just yet. But with March just around the corner (technically when spring should start…but never does here in Chicago), it’s definitely not too early to start thinking about your next season wardrobe NOW. And what should be the first on the list this year? A piece of outerwear that deserves bomb[er] dot com status.
