The Power of Layering: Creating Dimension in Your Outfits

Blog post for stay at fashion moms

Picture this: it's early in the morning. Your home is brimming with energy as kids dart about in their pajamas, your half-sipped coffee growing cold on the kitchen counter, and in the middle of it all, there is you. You stand before your wardrobe, the door wide open, staring at a sea of options...yet you think, "I have nothing to wear!" Sounds like a familiar scene, right?


In our busy lives as mothers, professionals, and multitasking marvels, we've all experienced these paradoxical moments. And it was on one such chaotic morning not long ago when I was struck by a flash of inspiration. Instead of succumbing to the fashion frustration, I found my mind drifting back to a recent getaway, a small interlude from the joyous pandemonium of motherhood.


My husband and I had taken a respite from our parental duties to spend a few stolen days in the heart of Paris. Imagine the allure of the city of lights, the dreamy Seine river, the hum of old tunes floating from a distance, and of course, the undeniable Parisian chic.


As I soaked in the city's charm, I found myself fascinated by the effortless elegance of the Parisian women. Each ensemble they sported was a masterpiece in layering. An oversized blazer draped nonchalantly over a basic tee, a silk scarf gently fluttering in the breeze, a trench coat worn with an air of insouciance - each layer adding a new dimension to their unique style story.


These stylish Parisian women, effortlessly navigating the beautiful city, exuded a powerful message. An outfit wasn't just about the clothing items you wore. Instead, it was a canvas for expressing your unique style through the art of layering, accessories, and small but striking details.


Inspired by this Parisian panache, I fell head over heels for the art of layering all over again. It's a simple yet transformative fashion tool that can elevate our busy mom outfits from ordinary to truly extraordinary.


Today, dear mamas, I invite you on this style journey as we uncover three key tips to mastering the art of layering. Together, let's add a touch of that Parisian "je ne sais quoi" to our everyday work, workout, or going-out outfits. Are you ready to discover a new dimension in your personal style? Buckle up, and let's dive in!


Start with a Solid Base

Experiment with Proportions and Textures.

Don’t Shy Away from Accessory Layers.



Layering is more than just a way to stay warm; it's a powerful styling tool that can bring depth, interest, and personality to your look. From the busy mom managing a household to the professional woman balancing home-office life, layering is a technique that can help you look chic and stylish in any situation.


Remember, it's all about balance and playing with textures, colors, and proportions. And most importantly, it's about expressing yourself and feeling comfortable and confident in your own skin. Whether you're inspired by the effortless elegance of Parisian women or the innovative combinations of your favorite fashion influencers, the key to successful layering is making it

uniquely yours.


With love and layers, 💋
