THE ART OF LAYERING

Posted by on

The art of layering -  a styling technique used by Graye that marries both creativity and practicality.

Often layering menswear pieces can seem daunting, but fret not, we are here to show you a few interesting combinations you can try out. Playing with a mixture of colours and textures, you can pair simple shirts or tees under more oversized outerwear to create a spectrum of silhouettes.

 

MONOCHROMATIC, WITH VARYING TEXTURES

STARK KIMONO COAT

Looking to dress from head-to-toe in a solid colour (or slightly different shades)? Select pieces with different materials and textures, this immediately adds depth and dimension to the outfit. By incorporating subtle contrasts, whether in texture and/or patterns, you can create an overall look that exudes sleek simplicity. A great example would be combine soft and heavy textures together, such as wool, linen and cotton with materials like leather.

SILHOUETTE MANIPULATION, SLEEVE LAYERING

Visible layers is key, and it is also important that each layer can be worn individually to ensure versatility to remove a piece for a different event or a change in temperature. Playing around with different sleeve lengths is another way to complement a minimalistic or casual look. You can easily pair a shorter sleeve outerwear or roll up the top layer sleeves to show off the difference in colour or texture.

SIMPLISTIC LAYERING, WITH ESSENTIAL WHITE TEE

 

The ultimate layering essential in everyone’s wardrobe, is probably The White Tee.  Neutral in colour, a white tee is versatile, pairing perfectly with almost everything. Whether worn tucked in/out, under a sweater, coat or blazer, worn fitted, slim cut or even oversized – there are just so many ways to style a white tee. With a white top as the base, layering can be gradually built up in style with any colour. Here we have used the white tee as a contrast base for a semi-formal work look that is effortless stylish.
