Why wear one lovely piece when five look even lovelier? This t'was the question for Autumn/Winter 2012. And why stick to one luxe fabric when a wealth of lavish layers looks so spectacular? Pairing skirts (Very Peplum) with trousers is key to the new layered look - seen at Chanel, Louis Vuitton, Marc Jacobs and Prada - styled slim and cropped. It's also been spotted on celebrities such as Florence Welch. Top tips to conquer this trend:
- Key to the new layered look is the pairing of skirts and trousers - if that feels a little extreme, try wearing a tunic over trousers instead.
- If the thought of layering makes you feel overwhelmed, steamline the look by cinching your waist or choose a cropped jacket instead of a full-length style.
- Height is a necessity as a longer line stops the look feeling bulky, so add heels or autumn's favourite flat-form creepers.
