How To Layer Your Spring Outfit 2020

So the transitional season, between winter and spring, is definitely going strong. This means that it’s time to put away your winter coats and say hello to a lighter fashion. It might be too early to only work one layer, but definitely not too early to layer up the spring/summer clothes. Here’s a guide on how to layer your spring outfit 2020! The best part about the pieces I mention? Well, all of them pretty much go together!

Layer Your Spring Outfit 2020

Slip Dress

One trendy item this season is the slip dress. I talked a bit about how to work the dress in this article, but not how you can layer it. As the slip dress is fairly neutral in its design, it’s a great layering piece. The slip dress can favorably be styled with a t-shirt under, a shirt or why not a fitted, fine-knitted, sweater? I also like the idea of layering the slip dress with a cardigan or a blazer over. A chic idea is to work the slip dress with a buttoned shirt and a blazer over. It’s a three-layered outfit that’s stylish and works in more formal situations too. If you’re working your slip dress with a t-shirt under, it can be chic to tie a scarf around the neck for that pop!

A shirt is a must in every person’s wardrobe. If you choose a white one, a striped shirt or a light blue one – it doesn’t really matter. I’m a big fan of layering the shirt under sweaters and cardigans. Let the collar, the hemline and the cuffs be visible. You can also, as mentioned above, layer your shirt with a slip dress over. A trendy look the past seasons has been to layer your shirt with a crop top over. It’s quite the fashion statement, but easy to pull off if you go for neutral pieces. Going for a more fitted shirt can also help the look.

So 2020 seems to be the comeback of the cardigans! I love chunky, oversized, knitted cardigans so I’m definitely happy. Cardigans are such a great piece to layer with as they’re warm and rather neutral. Layering your outfits with a t-shirt or top and a cardigan over is a great idea. Also layering up trench coats, denim jackets and leather jackets is a stylish idea. If you button your cardigan it can also function as a sweater and is chic to layer with shirts. Working a bow blouse with a cardigan can also be a fashionable way. A leather or denim vest can be stylish pieces to layer over a cardigan!

Crop Top

And what about the crop tops? This trendy clothing piece that seems to stay in trend forever? Well, one way to make the crop top more wearable is to layer it with t-shirts and regular tops. I also like the idea of framing the crop top with a chunky cardigan to make the clothing piece feel “less naked”. It’s also a good idea to work it with something high-waisted to make it suitable for the every day life. I like the idea of layering a slip dress or any regular maxi/midi dress with a crop top over. Especially if the dress is a bit more loose and the crop top a bit oversized!

  1. Hey Mia, nice blog post! I’d say this season and fall are the perfect seasons to start making strange combinations, heat is not that hard but you’re covered enough with a light jacket.

    I’m curious about light layering and I’m definitely giving a try, despite I only use it to go to the balcony hahaha, but right now I’m keeping an eye on garments like a cardigan (I’ve seen it a lot on IG accounts and on fashion blogs, it seems that this is the time to get one in a bright color).

    All the best!

    1. Haha that’s great though! I know you’ll be ready to layer up as soon as you’re able to go out. Adding a cardigan to your closet sounds like a great plan! Xx

  2. I love layering a t-shirt under a slip dress. I find the advantage is not just it keeps me warmer, but also if my bra straps are thicker than the dress straps the t-shirt disguises them :).

  3. I love layers all the time, but now is the perfect time for them, I agree! I have been living in cardigans as my favorite layer lately.
