This week’s outfit of the week goes to a perfectly layered look featured on the Ohh Couture blog. This sophisticated outfit combines trendy pieces with a classic touch. Leonie embraces a pair of brown culottes and builds her look around them. The brown handbag and the red-ish orange strappy sandals help bring out the overall flavor of the look. She takes a white sleeveless blazer and makes it trendier by pairing it with a long white shirt. This outfit could take you from a day at work to a bar having happy hour with coworkers. To keep it chic and sophisticated, keep your layers loose and oversized, and your accessories simple. Check out the outfit featured below to see how you can get a similar look.

Fun Ways to Layer your Look this Fall

Dressing for fall can be a bit tricky sometimes because it’s hard to predict the weather.  We still get those days of warmth and sunshine, but on the other hand, mornings and evenings can be quite chilly!

Prepare for all kinds of weather by layering up! Rebecca Ramsey, writer for NYmag, provides some tips on how to layer Fall jackets.

First, try wearing a trench coat. They’re great because they’re lightweight and can easily transition from summer to Fall.  Focus on colors like navy, gray, or black because they go with almost anything.

Second, try wearing a jean jacket around your waist.  I’d recommend this for more casual occasions.  Ramsey suggests a mid-blue wash.  I think a jean jacket with a little bit of fading can also kick it up a notch.

The best part is, when it’s hot you’ll look cute with a jean jacket around your waist, and when it’s cold, you look casual and relaxed wearing the jean jacket the traditional way.

Another look you should try is the double-breasted blazer.  Ramsey suggests focusing on colors like navy and gray because they can look good in any season.

If you’re looking for something longer, try a long duster coat.  Just beware that sometimes this style of coat can be a bit overpowering.  If you’re tall then you’re in luck because it won’t look like you’re being swallowed up by a coat!

Ramsey suggests opting for a color like cool lilac or a deep, dusty pink.  These colors will bring out your softer feminine side in no time!

Last but not least, if you’re not up for a full on jacket, opt for an oversized sweater.  They look great paired with a dress or a midi skirt!  Oversized sweaters can make an outfit look casual and cute, while keeping you warm and toasty!

So what kind of layering tactics will you employ?
