  • When layering, you want to keep the different items of clothing light so you don’t overwhelm yourself with the amount of items that are hanging on your body. Layering lots of heavy, bigger items, can also make you look larger than you actually are which sometimes doesn’t look too flattering. If you layer two lighter items with one heavier item on top, you will complete the layering look.

  • Layering sweater on sweaters can become bulgy and not so flattering. It is true that you want to stay warm and that’s part of the reason why layering is so in, but to help you keep your actual shape, you can try something like a shall.
