Structured Layers

by Kéla Walker

Tis the season to layer and such was the case for today’s #ootd post when I tried layering a dress a la Victoria Beckham style.

 Despite have a fashion blog I don’t always get things right.  But I do always try to mix things up and try something new. Such was the case with his look that was inspired by Victoria Beckham. I love the sharp tailored look with the sharp collar but not the price tag. You know me. So I tried recreating the look myself by layering a dress. It’s an easy look to create taking any one of your basic dresses and layering it over a collared shirt. It worked. KINDA.  If I could do this one all over again I’d probably add a belt given the shape and length of this dress or go with a different dress altogether.
Whether layering a dress or anything for that matter,anything goes.  Layering is one of the most stylish ways to get through cold weather season; primarily because it’s a great way to show your distinct style. This time I clearly went for the posh professional look.  Next time  I’ll try layered this dress with a sweater AND jacket and switch out the heels for over the knee boots. Needless to say I’ll be wearing this dress a few more times as I perfect my  layering a dress skills.
