Finnnnnnnnnnnnaallllllllyyyy the season is changing and it’s getting a bit nippy in my neck of the woods-well, desert-so that means layering to keep warm, but not hot, is in order. The key is to team up garments that can be taken off when you’re inside or a little toasty, and add them when the opposite happens. I did a little shopping this past weekend and found a few awesome deals on layering pieces:
Tees + Tanks
Target, my favorite store, never disappoints when it comes to basic pieces. They almost always have great, quality tank tops and t-shirts in store, and if they ever don’t, they can be found even cheaper on their website: http://www.target.com/p/mossimo-supply-co-juniors-long-and-lean-tank-assorted-colors/-/A-12963162#prodSlot=large_1_3 And they’re inexpensive enough to stock up in every color.
American Apparel is also known for their consistent collection of basics. http://store.americanapparel.net/subCategory/index.jsp?subCatId=cat33770They are a bit more pricey, but they’re made in America! Always a plus!
JCPenney has some fantastic layering sweaters for fall too. I was pleasantly surprised by the styles and the prices put a smile on my face. http://www.jcpenney.com/dotcom/juniors-guys/view-all-juniors/clothing/tops/sweaters/cat.jump?id=cat100240015&deptId=dept20000015&cmJCP_T=G1&cmJCP_C=D5 The thinner fabrics and looser weaves make them perfect for wearing something over and underneath.
Another favorite is the button up denim shirt. It’s super versatile and comfortable and, duh, an ideal layering piece. It’s a classic that I’m seeing everywhere at a great price. In denim, it’s a hip alternative to the basic woven blouse and transcends the seasons. http://www.forever21.com/Search/Search.aspx?br=f21&category=top_blouse_shirts&keyword=denim%20shirt
You can find scarves anywhere, but World Market is one of my favorite, unexpected places to find unique, beautiful scarves at great prices. http://www.worldmarket.com/category/gifts-accessories/clothing-and-accessories.do?nType=1Scarves make wonderful toppers[and holiday gifts] and can be worn like a big chunky necklace, really bringing a look together and making a statement.
I’m not quite ready for beanies, gloves, legwarmers or earmuffs yet, but give me a few weeks.

It took me a while to get comfortable with the art of it but I now love layering! Great article!
Yes! Layering is a must in climates like southern California where you may be freezing when you leave in the morning and toasty at lunchtime and cold again at the end of the day.
