Fall Layering Tips You Need To Know

PHOTOGRAPHED BY NYRA LANG
'Tis the season of layers — we're wearing 'em and, admittedly, talking a lot about them. While the instinct to wear tons of clothes is a natural reaction to the weather, expert layering is way easier said than done. And, quite frankly, a lot of layering tactics only sound good in theory: Oh, just pile on the clothes and mix all the textures you want. In reality, though, nonstrategic layering can quickly lead to sloppy, bulky puff.
So, for a primer in Fall Layering 101, we tasked five of our stylish staffers to raid Century 21 Department Store in search of the key designer gems that'll help transition their personal styles into fall and share how they do the artful pile-on. When you're ready to stock up on your own transitional-weather pieces, be sure to enter for a chance to win a $1,500 shopping spree from C21! Up ahead, we're pulling back the layers of, ahem, layering.
