Grab A Sweater, It's Layerin' Weather!

It seems like, at this point, we're talking about the changing temps and rising winds in every other post. It's like they say — everybody talks about the weather, but nobody does anything about it. Powerless as we may be against fall's chill, it does offer the opportunity for the fun fashion game of layering.
Now, you're probably already going into the season with some experience in out-of-the box layering techniques. But, as we all know, every new year deserves new tricks, and we've turned to the streets to supply you with a few fresh tips. Better yet, we've combed through these pictures from the hawk-eyed photog Melodie Jeng of The NYC Streets and figured out what pieces you can grab at Target to recreate these layered looks. Pretty neat, huh? Now click on — we see some rolling and bunching in your future.

Nicole Preziosi of TheCorner.com starts us off easy with a — what shall we call it — rebellious-Italian-schoolgirl look. The Peter Pan collar over the green sweater is preppy smooth, but the tighter, higher moto jacket (note the rolled-up sleeves) with the pleated, two-fabric skirt bring in that edge. Lesson? Play with length until you get it right.

Knitwear designer Sijeo Kim has certainly learned a few things about draping over the years. Even though, this is more a summer example of layering, we're loving the way she bunched up her tee in her waist at the same place that asymmetrical skirt cuts in. Think this would work with a very, very light oversized sweater and some slouchy slacks? Totally.

Now if you look at Dutch TV-star Tiany Kiriloff's ensemble, you might not catch that the warm layer here isn't the jean jacket. It's actually that structured, padded top. It basically goes to show that thickness and weight shouldn't determine what you throw on last.

Okay, this is just too cute. Italian Gloria Bombarda of La Borsa di Mary Poppins has let her thick, thick sweater (which we would totally steal from her if she wasn't looking) bunch up by folding it into itself at the bottom, exposing her chambray at the waist and creating volume above it. Crazy and kind of amazing. Note the way her shirt's cuffs pop out and say hello, too.

Alright, Yun Chou of Rice and Shine, we get it. Black wrinkled leather on black wrinkled leather just works. Gotta say, though, we love that you went with a vest instead of a jacket. Leather sleeves really would have made this top heavy, clouding that ah-mazing skirt.

To shop a similar style: labworks Women's Chiffon Blouse w/ Embellished Collar, $33, available at Target; Mossimo Women's Pencil Skirt w/ Faux Leather Trim, $25, available at Target; Mossimo Women's Moto Vest w/ Faux Leather, $30, available at Target.

And finally — after we've been talking about asymmetrical layering for slide after slide — comes the beautiful Irene Colzi of Irene's Closet. She, too, is doing the roll, but note how it's the ONE piece with color in her look. Hey, if you're going to do something a little bit daring, might as well do it where people will notice.
