Dressing in layers is more typical in the winter season than in spring time, but we can actually adapt this trend to this time of the year. The main characteristic of this trend is versatility. This “technique” allows us to vary by adding and removing layers depending on climate, occasions and locations.
Dressing in layers: what does it mean?
Dressing in layers means that we carry several garments, one on top of the other and they are all visible at the same time.
Some garments to dress in layers
There are some garments that are perfect and seem to be designed to dress this way. Some of the garments that we suggest are:
The turtleneck sweater. It’s a useful garment while dressing in layers, in fact it’s possible to combine with shirts, jackets and coats. At the same time it will be always visible on the neck. The best choice in this case are neutral colorsthat allow to use it under shirts. This will give a sophisticated retro touch to the look.
The white shirt. This garment is indispensable in a man’s wardrobe. It will give you a clean and elegant look. We can use it under garments like sweaters or cardigans.
The cardigan. This garment works great especially in spring and brings a sophisticated and elegant touch to our look. Perfect to combine with white, blue and pink shirts.
The sweatshirt. We recommend the one without hood because is more elegant and easy to wear. We can use it under coats or padded jacket and at list even on white shirts.
The denim jacket. This garment has been very popular for a long time. There is a denim jacket in each closet and now it’s time to revaluation!We can combine it with the turtleneck, shirt and under coat or trench coat.

That’s why we recommend to wear pants in bright colors in this season and more warm tones like camel for other times such as autumn. Star colors: yellow and Klein color.
Like we always said, shoes are the garment that complete and refine the look. At the same time they are the most important part of the ensemble since they define the elegance and sophistication of the outfit.
These shoes work especially well with a turtleneck, a white shirts or a trench coat. Due to their elegance and formality, we chose to combine them with chinos or straight pants.
