Master the Art of Layering for the Fall (English)

Contributed by: Augutsine Pilon of Iamyrtille- Salvation Army Thrift Store Creative Expert.

What I like the most about autumn, apart from its magnificent colours, is being able to put on different layers of clothing in order to stay warm as well as stylish. Anyone can apply this method, commonly known as layering, which enables one’s creativity to run wild. I love choosing an outfit with complementary colours and textiles!


The great thing about layering is that you can quickly change from an "office" to a cozy look by adding simple accessories, such as this big wool scarf.



All clothing in the featured look was found at The Salvation Army thrift store on Ontario Street East, in Montreal. Shopping in second-hand stores is, in my opinion, not only one of the best ways to reduce our ecological footprint, but also an interesting option for your search of unique clothing at low prices.



One of my key pieces to master the art of layering is the turtleneck. It is a versatile item of the wardrobe, since it can be worn with jeans, skirts, etc. For a more elegant look, it can be tucked under trousers that are slimmer at the waist, matched with a jacket or blazer in complementary colours.



I personally fell in love with this wool jacket. To increase your chances of finding an item like this one (because yes, there is a great deal of luck in this process!), I suggest to regularly visit your favorite thrift store. Unique and high quality pieces like this jacket are gone very quickly in second-hand shops.
