Tonal Layering=Effortless Elegance

WWD is calling out "Layering" as a Pre-Fall trend for 2010; but this is something you can be doing RIGHT NOW.

Layering can be a little tricky if you are using multiple colors and may require bold leaps on your part. However layering with tonal or like colors can be a breeze. Make it more interesting by mixing subtle patterns &/or textures. The above images look so easy, because they are. I am not saying buy every "twin-set" you see, but keep in mind what is already in your closet & then when you see that wrap or bolero in the same shade with an interesting weave or shimmer you have a brand new outfit at the cost of single piece. As you practice this your friends will notice a sophistication & you will know how effortless, elegance can be.
