See that smile on my face? It’s because it’s officially sweater season in Georgia as of last week. The greatest time of year! What I love about Georgia weather is that it’s still breezy and cool but the sun is shining. Which also means that layering is key as it starts cold in the morning and gets warmer in the afternoon. Keep reading for the best layering tips to combat this weather!

Find Long Tanks and Shorter Sweaters
Layering is not only the perfect cure for wavering weather, but it’s also the cure for this unflattering (on me) trend of slightly cropped, boxy sweaters. When you’re looking for the perfect layering pieces, it’s easy to find sweaters that are a good length: usually hitting at the hip or right above. It’s sometimes harder to find a long, layer tank. (So when you do, stock up!) I do end up buying my tanks or tees one or two sizes larger to get a little bit of extra length. Old Navy has the best basics and layering pieces, along with Nordstrom/Nordstrom Rack and Gap!
Use Neckline to your Advantage
If you’re not layering at the bottom hem of your sweater, make layers at the neckline. If you’re wearing a boatneck or off the shoulder sweater, wear a lace bra or strappy tank underneath. A little hint of those straps gives the outfit a lot more interest and a little more depth. I love wearing strappy bras with with low cut sweaters! And I think we’ve all seen that Free People lace bra under a slouchy sweater this season.
Combine Colors, Textures and Patterns
My favorite part of layering is combining different textures. I recently wore a burgundy, chunky chennile sweater over a striped cotton tank and I got so many compliments! I also love pairing contrasting colors. I typically like to stick to mostly netural colors for my sweater and jazz it up with a bright color or pattern on the tank underneath. Another favorite of mine is a lightweight, almost sheer sweater with a chunky lace bra peeking out of the top.
