What would fall be without layering?  To help get the most out of fashions most creative and coziest season, you need to have the right pieces.  That means items that can easily mix and match or be easily worn from day to night.  To help kick off autumn I’ve picked some key must-have pieces for layering and how to wear them.

A little fur  on a vest will instantly make any outfit a little glam, cozy and chic.  Pair with jeans and a striped top for a easy casual look or a little black dress and tights for a quirky sexy look.

Faux Fur Trim Vest

A classic striped top with a touch of leather is a no brainer!  Layer it under cardigans, button downs and finish off the look with a scarf.

Striped Top 

Add some denim to any outfit for a effortless feel.  Wear it under the vest with fur and the striped top for layering perfection!

Denim Top

A long cardigan will make layering dressier pieces a cinch!  Try it with a pencil skirt or even a maxi dress.

Long Cardigan 

Necklaces and scarfs make any layering look instantly more stylish.  Try a long necklace and scarf for a flowy affect.

 Scarf

A little black dress is the perfect canvas for all your layering needs.  Pick one that fits like a glove, add some tights or leggings and start adding layers.  You can start by adding a very thin turtle neck or  button down underneath.

Target Style Series: How to Layer Your Look

When temps start to drop, it’s all about the layering to me – It’s such a simple yet fabulous way to add depth and character to ANYTHING!  The key to layering is keeping the look effortless yet polished while always shooting for the lightest fabric possible to avoid looking bulky. Below are some of my favorite tricks for layering:

Lace Dress – $24.99 | Plaid Blouse – $17.99 | Hooded jacket – $17.48 | Leggings – $8 | Merona Ballerina Flats – $19.99 | Glitter Belt – $12.99

Vest, scarves, leggings and short dresses that can be belted and used as tunics are my personal must-haves for layering.

Suede Top – $16.99 | Polo – $13 | Bomber Jacket – $39.99 | Merona Tailored Ankle Pants – $27.99 | | Merona Moccasin – $24.99 | Merona Satchel – $29.99 | Houndstooth Scarf – $9

If you’re layering a bulkier peice let it be the one that goes on last, like the jacket pictured here.

Striped Henley – $12 | Long Lean Tank – $6 | Denim Vest – $27.99 | Leggings – $8 | Boots – $34.99 | Satchel – $29.99

The longest peice always goes under the layer. Tanks (especially striped ones), polos and tees are the best choice.

The idea is to have fun and not put too much thought into layered looks.  See how the Target Fall Collection is designed to take you through a season of stylish looks at Target.com/Merona.
