A word on layering










If you are trying to step up your fashion game, layering is always a good way to go. And not only that, layering garments on top of each other gives your outfit structure. Combine couple of simple items together and you will get not so simple, well structured outfit.

Also, it will keep you warm. No matter how cold it is outside you can make yourself warm by wearing couple of warm layers. Coat is my favourite item for layering. You can wear almost anything underneath it and it will look well put together. I love to wear it with vests, chunky sweaters and scarves, leather jacket...

Speaking of which, leather jackets are a great layering piece as well. In the Spring wear them with floral dresses and sweaters, paired with biker boots and you can't go wrong.

Point of layering is to avoid all the rules, but there are couple things you should keep in mind:


- Don't mix too many different prints together, this rarely looks good. If you are mixing prints, the safest way to go is to combine the ones with similar colours.

- If you want an elegant look, wear the simple garments together. No matter how many layers you put on, if all the items are simple it will look chic.

- Avoid being matchy-matchy, meaning: don't wear leather with leather, wool on wool, etc. Mixing denims is allowed, because it looks good, but it is preferable to wear a denim shirt with denim pants, not matching jacket and jeans!

Here I opted for both coat and leather jacket, I really like this combo and I often wear it. I also love mixing denim shirt and pants and the sweater is there to tie everything together nicely.



Ako želite da unapredite i ''začinite'' svoj stil, slojevito oblačenje je dobra opcija. Pored toga, nošenje odevnih komada jednog preko drugog daće vam  kombinaciju koja ima strukturu. Ukombinujte jednostavnu odeću zajedno i dobićete izgled koji nije nimalo jednostavan, niti dosadan.

Takođe, ako se slojevito oblačite uvek će vam biti toplo. Koliko god da je hladno, možete da se utoplite uz nekoliko debelih slojeva. Moj omiljeni odevni predmet za slojevito oblačenje je kaput. Možete da nosite bilo šta ispod njega  i to će dobro da izgleda. Volim da ga nosim sa prslucima, debelim džemperima i šalovima, kožnom jaknom...

Kada smo kod kožne jakne, ona je sjajna za kombinovanje sa više slojeva. Na proleće je uklopite sa haljinom cvetnog printa, džemperom i bajkerskim čizmama i ne možete da pogrešite.

Poenta ove vrste oblačenja je da se prekrše sva pravila, ali ovo su neke stvari koje bi trebalo da imate na umu:


- Nemojte da mešate previše printova, to retko izgleda dobro. Ako ipak ovo želite, najbezbednije je da kombinujete printove sličnih boja.

- Ako želite elegantan izgled, nosite jednostavne odevne komade. Bez obzira na to koliko slojeva obučete, ako su svi komadi jednostavni to će izgledati šik.

- Izbegavajte preterano uklapanje, što znači: nemojte da nosite kožu sa kožom, vunu direktno preko vunne, itd. Mešanje teksasa je dozvoljeno, može jako dobro izgleda, ali je poželjno da to budu košulja i farmerke, a ne teksas jakna i farmerke.

Ovde sam se opredelila i za kaput i za jakno, jako volim ovu kombinaciju i često je nosim. Takođe volim da kombinujem teksas košulju i farmerke, a džemper je tu da sve lepo poveže.
