The layered look is in! With the winter season and the coming of spring we are layering our ensembles, under garments and our looks wouldn’t be complete without a few layered accessories. Last spring fashionistas began layering small dainty necklaces to complete a simple and chic finish to their wardrobe; nowadays it’s no holds barred in the accessories game. With fashion and trends forever evolving nothing is off limits and even large, bulky necklaces are being layered to create a statement. Although layered neck pieces create the right amount of flare there are a few simple blouses that are necessary to complete the look.
