Mckenzie Kerrigan, Editor-In-Chief


Layering is essential in the fall, as the temperature drops student begin to replace the standard oversized shirts and shorts for something more warmly. While sweatpants and a hoodie always get the job done, when you’re feeling a bit extra try these tips to ensure you’re warm and stylish!


  1. Have strategic pieces at hand

This includes turtlenecks, mock necks, sweaters, leggings, patterned tights, and thick socks! All these pieces are essentials to staying warm and helping add layers to your outfit.


  1. Try the 3-layer Method

Base layer = lightweight clothes, like a t-shirt or cami.

Mid Layer = A warmer layer like a sweater or cardigan.

Outer layer = A protective element like a jacket or coat.

2. Experiment 

Don’t be afraid to step out of your comfort zone when layering. Trying new patterns or colors can add to a look. Patterned tights can help add character and movement to a plain fit. 

3. Remember your roots

We live in southern Georgia, so keep that in mind when you begin your layering journey. Much of the weather patterns will change throughout the day leaving you overheated in a sweater. In times like these, try sweater vests or light cardigans instead.
