3 Layered Outfits That Are Effortlessly Stylish

 The art of being effortlessly stylish is all about light layering.

Some days, you just want to throw something on that looks like you didn't spend hours putting it together.

Today I bring you 3 layered outfits that have that nonchalant, thrown-on air about them.

 Current situation: frantically trying to pack for Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week in Sydney. And by pack, I mean; my spare bedroom has turned into an explosion of outfit ideas that I'm nit-picking my way through. Plus, I'm still praying that the post man will turn up with that big box of shoes I'm supposed to be getting. **First world problems**

I fly suuuper early tomorrow morning, and I'm excited, despite the prospect of getting up at 4AM. Anyhow, I'm babbling... to keep up with my fashion week adventures, follow me on Instagram @thedailyluxe .

Without further adieu, here's the reason that you are really reading this. Here's 3 layered outfits that are effortlessly stylish...

Shirt Dress Over Shorts

Ok, I have to admit, this one sort of came about by accident. I plucked this striped shirt dress from the dusty depths of my wardrobe, only to find that my butt had somehow outgrown it!

Instead of wailing at my ahem whale-ness, I left it open and threw on some shorts.

The result? Something effortlessly stylish that is perfect for cooler beach days or casual Summer looks. Layered outfits are great for between seasons.


Slip Dress Over T-Shirt

Don't get me wrong: I love a good slip dress. But unless you're going out, how often are you going to wear it?

This is when layered outfits can make your wardrobe more versatile. Simply throw on the slip dress with a tee and Adidas sneakers and it looks effortless and casual.

Best of all, you can change how dressed up you want it to look by simply changing your top

 

Velvet Dress Over White Shirt

I absolutely adore velvet, unfortunately, my white cat Artie likes this velvet dress too!

To make this velvet dress completely appropriate for both lunch and business meetings, I layered it over my off-shoulder white shirt.

What are your favorite layered outfits you like to wear?
