Layering patterns is really a simple task…albeit a somewhat scary one; a black and white pinstripe button-up can be the foundation piece for most patterned tops, such as this tweed Trina Turk top. A faux-leather pleated skirt is a basic must-have for Fall 2015 and is worth it, because you can wear it with so many shirts; two weeks ago I wore it with a silk blouse. When the weather cools down, just pair it with a pair of tights, such as these Spanx Luxe Leg Blackout Tights. Layering patterns can seem risky, but trust me, it is such a cute look for fall and different from the average. Both the Trina Turk top and Equipment shirt can be found at Shop One Augusta, an upscale women’s clothier in Surrey Center. Have fun mixing and matching your patterns for layering…as it cools down, you will be happy you did!
