With summers nearly around the corner, here is how celebrities are schooling us on layering for transitional weather.
Approaching March signifies the onset of spring, with an undertone of soothing warm winds after chilly winters. There are only a few who can balance style and functionality in winters. Layering is a much-needed trend that can be tricky for this season. You have to be thoughtful about veering away from everything heavy and instead engage in lighter pieces. So, this year, our favourite celebs attuned to the latest trends and put their best foot forward with season appropriate covers. Think exquisitely printed shrugs, funky denim jackets, light cardigans, and intricate shawls.
Light trench over a shirt
You do not have to opt for anything heavy duty that might compromise with your style. Pick up a light trench in signature Burberry beige or black. Whether you are opting for a simple crisp buttoned down or a lace shirt, just throw over that trench and you are sorted. Kangana Ranaut in this Burberry ensemble is giving us major cues.
Floor length robes over dresses
When it comes to light robes, the scope for styling it in your favour is major. Athiya Shetty in this Anamika Khanna robe and slit dress exudes major sporty vibes. If you want to pair that robe with a turtleneck and a shirt, this is the time. Take this statement further and belt the robe up when pairing it with denims. What do you think about this layering for transitional weather look?
Cropped, sleeveless cardigans with shirts
When it comes to layering for transitional weather don’t put all your cardigans away. Half-sleeved numbers can still work. Better if you own a funky piece, maybe with zipper features and throw them over a simple collared shirt. Case in point is Bella Hadid styled by Mimi Cuttrell. This Reese Cooper army cardigan pulls this look together.
Cropped denim jackets (over everything)
Ditch too many layers and invest in something as versatile as a denim jacket. A statement denim jacket can help you accentuate your off-duty vibe. So, whether you are picking up a formal shirt or a t-shirt, a denim jacket will help you sail through this time. Deepika in this Alberta Ferretti ensemble is vibing out boss lady realness.
Slouchy blazers over dresses
There is something about a sharp, tailored oversized blazer that makes it a seasonless piece. What better way to layer them over you regular dresses, or even kurtas for the present season. Sonam Kapoor‘s teaming her top with a pair of pants and a blazer is well structured yet playful. This Maison Valentino suit set is pure perfection.
A sleeveless jacket over a jumper
Leave it to Gigi Hadid when it comes to turning a monotonous look into something interesting. We love the way she has paired this sleeveless Stella McCartney jacket over this green Ralph Lauren jumper. Adding to cool quotient is a pair of ripped denims.
A statement overcoat is all you need
Imagine you are all dressed for a night out and you want your dress to be highlighted. A versatile overcoat (to also save you from the night’s cold) might help. We suggest keep it simple and let the old Hollywood glam do the talking. This black overcoat on Priyanka Chopra’s Sally LaPointe dress is a winning look.
Bra top and blazer
With summer around the corner, funky bra tops make a comeback. How about layering them under blazers and keeping it sleek. Masaba Gupta (in a risque bra top paired with a black over-sized blazer) and Ananya Pandey (in a regular pant-suit) are giving us major layering goals this season.
