If you want to keep your gorgeous legs warm from the crisp, autumn air, then you definitely need to invest in the proper attire to keep you warm and looking fierce. The obvious way is to go with leggings as a layering piece, and while they do work, always looks good and are ridiculously comfy, they are certainly not the only way to layer on your lower half. This season, in addition to your go-to leggings, also try a full-length bodysuit that goes down to the ankles, which can be worn underneath a bodycon dress or skirt. You could also spice things up by rocking a pair of footless fishnets or brightly colored tights in fall’s primary colors and wear them underneath your summer cutoffs or romper.

Is there anything better than a beautifully chic blouse, turtleneck or sweater for fall? Not only are these fall fashion staples in their own right, but they also work wonders as layering pieces. Have a sexy, summer crop top that you just can’t let go of just yet? Simply throw your favorite fall blouse underneath and transform it into something classy, and possibly appropriate for work. The same goes for dresses that are sleeveless or those with shorter sleeves, put a long-sleeve turtleneck or sweater underneath and you’ll look ready to tackle the chilly fall temps in no time!

The great thing about scarves is that they can be worn year-round and always manage to add a little extra “pop” to your ensemble. However, they live their best lives in the fall when the variety is plentiful. Layer it on top of your favorite pair of jeans or leggings, using it as a make-shift skirt or rock it over your shoulders to shield you from the cold, giving your blazer or cardigan a break. The best way to stunt this fall with a scarf, is of course to wear it around your neck, wrapped around a few times to complete the fashionista uniform. Choose from those that feature chunky knits and bold prints/patterns to more traditional solids in fall’s color palette.
So ladies, now you’re equipped with tips to get you through the fall warm and in style! Layering in the fall just got that much easier for you.
