There is that Practical reason and then there is the stylish one. Here are some reasons, and tips, to combine both!
- It is Winter and cold comes to mind first. So let’s keep warm.
- In Style we have a rule of 3, with layers, there is the same.
- Southern African regions and work environments mean temperature changes hourly.
Layer 1 – closest to your body/base layer. Controls warmth and moisture
Layer 2- Insulates, creates a warm pocket of air between your layers, needs to be less tight fitting
Layer 3 – Protects, to be taken off easily. Most versatile.
note to reader: I do not count scarves as part of this 3 layer system.
Rule of Three, you ask? Simple. It is winter, and I have trousers and a shirt to wear, shoes (don’t count) and off I go. I see another person, similarly dressed, but looks amazing – the difference is that third piece. an accessory, jacket, layer (nudge, nudge, wink, wink) with a print, bold colour, texture, shine, shimmer or accent, that brings my outfit to life. Have a look on my facebook page, I am sure there are some interesting ideas, especially with animal print and neon colours, with the rule of three incorporated.
