STAYING ON TOP

 

I absolutely love this trend, or "The Superman Outfit", As my boyfriend calls it; wearing your clothes on top of each other. Besides clicking picture after picture on Vogue.com (ugh, this) I love finding fresh inspiration on Pinterest. I also absolutely love The Sartorialist's streestyle pictures and I've been following him for awhile now. I'm always in awe of stylish 'everyday' people he captures ever so effortlessly all over the world (check him out here).

Of all the fashion trends that have come and gone, I find this layering trend the most practical, simply because i get to recycle past season clothes in my wardrobe, especially the ones i don't wear anymore. Bustiers, for example, are the easiest item to experiment with for this because they're the best candidate for clothing that gets thrown to the back of your wardrobe after a few wears, amirite? 

how to nail the look:

1.  Pair your bustier with a basic top of a complimenting colour — For starters, a t-shirt? 

2. Check yo'self In the mirror — Does it fit right? look out for awkward bunching around the armpits especially if you're pairing it with a long sleeve shirt/tee below

3. Leave the house, never look back — it's all about having confidence in what you choose to pair together. have fun experimenting with different colours, prints and textures!
