Basic Layering

Having a range of layering pieces in your wardrobe is essential if you want to create versatile outfit options. They also keep you warm!

Although layering pieces can include T Shirts. camisoles and sleeveless tops, often referred to as ‘tanks’, they need to share one common factor. They must be fitted (no baggy T shirts please!) to enable them to follow the contours of your body. Not skin tight but close enough so the items you wear on top hang well.

Basic pieces can be long-sleeved, short-sleeved, V necked, crew necked – you get the picture.

If you are prepared to invest then you can’t get better than the Wolford top and body shown above. Or perhaps you’d prefer the sleeveless tank from , who sell a great range of top quality clothing – shown below. ¬†Whether it’s demure white lace or more dramatic black both pieces will layer well.

You may choose to have basic pieces which are hidden from view. This is a mistake in my opinion as there are many really pretty pieces available. From Marks and Spencer to Wolford.

This works!

Wearing a simple white camisole under a plain top creates some interest. Without the show of white the above outfit would be rather boring.
