Perfect Outfit: L.A. Layers


Fall is officially here and all of this rainy weather means the time
is right for lots of cozy cardigans and lovely layers. But how to wear
them without looking frumpy? Just take a page from today's Perfect
Outfit example: opt for a two-tone sweater with a slim-fit and layer
your favorite cropped coat from summer over it. Worn with a great pair
of skinny jeans and adorable ankle boots, the look is streamlined and
chic. Add a cozy, snood scarf and bold lip color to add some fab final
touches, and you'll nail this outstanding outfit whenever you need to
stay warm and look cool, too.
