Layering continues to be a huge trend this season, partly because of all of the vests, jackets and revealing silhouettes available. The other reason is that it is just fun to layer! You can mix and match solids and prints to create dozens of unique looks out of just a few pieces.
The important thing when layering is to have a variety of basics in different colors and shapes. Everyone needs a basic short sleeve tee, long sleeve tee, and tank in black or white, but beyond that it's a matter of personal preference. You might start by taking a look at your wardrobe and seeing what colors will compliment your existing items. By compliment, I don't necessarily mean "match" since a lot of the fun with layering is adding pops of color. For example, if most of your wardrobe consists of black, gray and other neutrals, you might want to consider adding reds, pinks, purples and bright blues.
My favorite brand for inexpensive basics is Tresics. They offer tanks, tees, hoodies, camis, cardigans, tunics and more in enough colors to make your head spin! Because they are so inexpensive, you can stock up and really add some energy to your wardrobe. With Tresics light weight tops, layering a breeze year round and their soft cotton spandex blends are figure flattering. My favorites are their long sleeve tees which I can layer under graphic tees, tanks and hoodies!
