When the nights become cooler but you still don’t need a full-on coat, make sure that you have the right layers. Layering is one of the easiest ways to change a look, not just for fashion purposes, but also to keep you comfortable as the temperatures change.

A hoodie is my go-to layer and I always carry one in my car. I have cotton hoodies in about five colors and keep them slim fit to pair with tank tops and t-shirts. But, if you want something a little less casual, go for a zip-up or pullover sweater (instead of gym-style cotton) complete with hood. It’s still comfortable, but allows the look to be a bit dressier.

Another great layering piece is a cardigan. You can always get a cardigan with three-quarters length sleeves, which is a great option for work. But if you need one for an evening outdoors to cozy up in, I suggest a long-sleeved cardigan that is on the longer side. It doesn’t have to be super heavy material, just make sure that you have one in a solid color like black and also a trendy color like teal. Forever 21 always has great deals on cardigans and adds fun embellishments like gold buttons or lace backs to their cardigan options.

The third piece I would suggest having in your layering wardrobe is a jean jacket. I’m not talking stonewash jean jackets of the ‘80s (although those are great, too), but more the darker rinse or colorful variety. Colored denim doesn’t have to end with a rainbow of different colors for jeans alone, but it can be carried over to a blueberry or rust-colored jean jacket for a colorful pop.

Not only does layering help you be prepared from changing from day to night, but it also opens the door to wear with sheer tops or fun, graphic tees while still keeping the look classy. There's no "right or wrong" way to layer, but with these three items you'll be well on your way!
