how to layer

There are a lot of things I'm decent at, but two things that I love to show off on this blog are my print mixing techniques and my layering tactics. In a town where the weather is unpredictable you must layer. First you start with a thin bottom layer- try a tissue thin turtleneck or a button up like me. Then find a good second layer that is in the same color family and sits comfortably on top of the first layer- like a pullover, or in my case a leather tee, natch. Lastly, find a great statement coat to sit atop the whole thing. And if it's really chilly a cashmere scarf or wrap looped casually around your neck just so. Now when everything seems a bit buttoned up and preppy up top I like to get a little disheveled on the bottom. Take for instance these Zara jeans, the whole look is a good balance for me- a little menswear, a little preppy and little messy. How do you guys layer?
