Less is definitely more when it comes to graphic knits. Keep the rest of your outfit monotone to pull off this hot trend of the season

Other than keeping you warm, corduroy suits are the safest balance of casual-yet-polished. Stick to browns, maroons, reds, dark greens or blues and then finish your look with knitwear layered beneath your jacket in a tonal variation of your suit’s shade.

Cardigans are smart layering options. Keep the fit slim and tapered, and swap your shirt with casual T-shirt for a more contemporary take.

Navy overcoat can lend a chic, continental feel to an outfit. It lends you a reason to flex between smart-casual and formal dress codes with ease. Drape it over suits and formal outfits to stay warm yet stylish.

An easy way to layer your suits this fall is to pick casual or semi-formal separates like pullovers, cardigans or coats over or under your suit. These separates add complexity to your tailored style.

There is no doubt that camo pring is one of the safest ways to layer. Unlike popular belief, it’s a very versatile print and can be mixed-and-matched with any colour. It blends in and stands out, depenidng on what you want to say with your outfit. Go camo on camo for a bold layering game.

Ditch accessories and go for layering pieces that focus on details to take your outfit to the next level without coming across as if you’re trying too hard.
