fall styles layering guide

Flannels, shackets, cardigans, and kimonos – what do all these styles have in common? They’re the perfect fall layers! This is your guide on how to layer clothing with these closet staples plus we’ve included a cheat sheet of styles you’ll pair under them so putting together outfits is effortless! Take note of our favorite picks for transitioning from summer to fall styles. How to layer clothing has never been easier!


how to layer flannels

Layer over 

A flannel or button up shirt is easily one of the most worn styles heading into fall. It’s so easy to layer it over a bralette, bra top, or tank. As the temps continue to cool down, you can layer a flannel over a graphic tee. We consider this fall layering style to be one of the most versatile so it’s definitely a closet staple! 


how to layer shackets

Layer over 

Shackets definitely have similar layering options as flannels, but they can also be slightly dressier by wearing over a sweater tank or blouse paired with booties. The thicker material of a shacket makes it easy to style how you would a jacket. 

Denim Jackets

Another closet staple, denim jackets are something you will for sure wear year-round. Layer denim jackets over a dress, romper, or even a bra top and biker shorts combo. The options are endless because denim pairs with virtually anything!

Cardigans are such a fall staple! Keep it casual by layering a cardigan over a graphic tee or bodysuit. You can also dress up a bodycon dress or jumpsuit with the right cardigan.

Think outside the box when you are styling fall layers. A light-weight option compared to a cardigan, kimonos are perfect layering options for transitioning from summer to fall styles.

Your go-to guide for layering all your favorite fall styles. From Flannels to Cardigans, the limit for layering options does not exist!



 Shop Flannels


No summer to fall wardrobe is complete without some plaid pieces. Layer these essentials over bodysuits, camis, bra tops, or tanks. Leave the style open for a more casual look or tie up the bottom for a more trendy option. For the transition from summer to fall, you have the option to tie the flannel around your waist or pair with denim shorts and biker shorts. The opportunities are endless! Campfire Song Plaid flannel is available in two colors. Wise Words Blue Frayed Hem Plaid Blouse is another new style to debut in the Fall Preview Collection. Looking for a solid option? The Sweet As Honey Rust Button Down Collared Blouse is perfect. 


Shop Shackets


Already the #1 new trending style this season, shackets are the new, must-have addition for your wardrobe. They're versatile with their midweight feel and feature pocket and button details in an oversized fit. The Meet You Outside Shacket is one of many shackets you'll be seeing this year!

Denim Jacket

Forever a wardrobe essential, oversize denim jackets will never go out of style. For outfit inspo, we've paired the Flashback Goodbye Denim Jacket with the Continue this Journey Oatmeal Pocket Sweater and the Sunny Side Days Rust Tie Front Shorts. When wearing an oversized layer, it's best to have the layer underneath to be more fitted. The Complicated Past Olive Knit Midi Dress is another pairing option for a denim layer.




Shop Cardigans


Is it really fall if you don't have your cardigans? Similar to flannels, these are great for layering over bodysuits, bralettes, tanks, and your favorite tops. Our favorite trend however is to pair cardigans with fall graphic tees. Daylight Magic Peach/Cream/Sage Striped Cardigan is a longer length option while Leave A Note Tan Spotted Cropped Cardigan or Leave The Past Cream/Beige Colorblock Lightweight Cardigan are shorter lengths that pair well with skirts or denim shorts.


Honestly, one of our favorite, new styling hacks! Check-out the reel below to see how @fashionablyhilary layers a sweatshirt over a midi dress. This trend will be your go-to this season so be sure to stock up on your midis and sweatshirts for the season.
