We’ve always loved layering! Whilst it’s a staple of the cool girl’s wardrobe, it’s not always a trend we see on the catwalk. However, on the AW22 runways, a luxe approach to layering was seen everywhere! The likes of Cecilie Bahnsen styled dresses over trousers, whilst Nanushka layered wrap skirts over leather blazers and Molly Goddard stacked dresses over t-shirts and pants.
We love layering – not only to help keep the autumnal chill at bay, but also to give every piece in your wardrobe multiple ways to wear. Buying fewer pieces that work for lots of occasions is what we’re all about at Emma Wallace.
So read on as we reveal the layered looks we love…
Office To Bar Layering
We love an outfit that can take you from day to night and our Geneva dress is just the ticket. Not only is the strapless shape and slinky fishtail silhouette effortlessly flattering, it’s also reversible meaning you get two dresses in one! We love to wear it in Navy layered over our white Hilda shirt with a pair of ankle boots for a look that commands attention. By night you can reverse to our green shade, de-layer and show a bit of skin to dial up the glamour for any girl’s night out.
Sheer But Cosy
Our Bobbi Top is the layering essential you’ve been looking for. This pink, sleeveless knitted vest features buttons and side ties for added interest. Bringing a touch of warmth to your look we love to layer it over our chic but sheer Madeline top in matching pastel pink which offers a peak-a-boo touch underneath. Pair with our Della Skirt, a pair of tights and stomper boots to complete the look.
Jump To It
Another day to night wonder, our Kanda Jumpsuit is a layering must have that can take you anywhere. With an asymmetric strap neckline and cross over detail it’s a star when worn solo, but we love that you can dress it down by layering it over a chic shirt. We’d opt for our Hilda shirt in our exclusive Luth Print to add a pop of colour underneath. Add a pair of simple white trainers and an oversized bag and you’re ready to take on the day in style.
Now skirts and dresses over trousers may feel very 90s, but the AW22 catwalks loved them! If you want to jump on the trend, then we’d opt for our beautiful Margie dress in our Luth print. With its midi length and curved empire seam it’s an easy wear piece that instantly has impact. We’d wear it over our BTW leggings with a pair of chunky loafers. Need an extra layer? Then our navy Bobbi top is a great throw over.
Knit On Knit
Layering cosy knits – is there a better feeling? Start with our Rou Top with its high neckline and split cuffs as your base and then throw over the Janet Cardi to finish with a print that packs a punch. Warm and chic in equal measure, wear with our Kizzi cropped culottes and a pair of heeled ankle boots so the hem hits the top of the boot for another layered nod.
Now you know how to master the polished layering trend it’s time to tap up your favourite styles and embrace this autumn-friendly style!
