One Closet, One Trend: Layering

outfit layering look blouse

There is a German tv show called "Shopping Queen" which I watch almost every weekend. It's about 5 girls getting 500€ and 4 hours time to shop the perfect look, matching a theme fixed by the German designer Guido Maria Kretschmer. The winner will be chosen shopping queen and gets 1000€. Now if you're wondering what this has got to the with the blog I can tell you that this show brought me to the idea for a new series of regular posts. Most of my regular posts are based on beauty like the "Manic(ure) Monday" or "Tried and Tested" posts but now I plan on doing new regular fashion posts where I show you how I would combine an outfit matching a recent trend with the clothes I already have at home. The trend at this week's "Shopping Queen" was layering and when I heard it I immediately knew what I could do:

Outfit: blouse - Vero Moda, sweater - Primark, coat - C&A, heels - MMMxH&M, bag - Guess, watch - Casio

In my opinion the easiest and most relaxed way of layering is to combine a nice blouse (or denim shirt) with a cosy (woolen) sweater and to add a (trench) coat which is either way longer or way shorter than the blouse. Regarding the colours I chose I would furthermore either wear black pants or a black pencil skirt with the tops. What surely goes with layering is the mixing of materials for example silk and wool, tulle and jeans,... For the accessories I simply used the colours of the sweater and blouse and went for simple and delicate jewellery in order not to overload the look.
What do you think of my combination? How would you interpret the look and what is your must when layering? Also please tell me if you like this kind of posts and if you would like to see another trend next week!

  7. I like how you have combined this!looks really nice! The blouse under a sweater is a great option, you can also wear a colorful shirt under a sweater or a cardigan. I have decorated a lot of my collars on plain shirts that I had so I would be able to wear them under sweaters and still have an interesting look.


    I like layering...right now the temperatures are pretty high where I live so I'll have to get rid off jackets, coats and etc...but still I think we can do layering in spring time as well and even in summer.

    I think I have seen that TV show on RTL once.
