Street Style Layers: Ideas That Aren't Just for Chilly Weather

When you think of layering, you probably automatically think of fall and winter clothing. But you don't have to - casual, light layers are also the perfect addition to your spring wardrobe, which should soon be transitioning into your summer one.

The trick to layering up when you're out and about is to make the layers look casual and easy. And if you're going to stay out running errands starting in say, the early afternoon, and heading to dinner with pals in the evening, you'll want to make sure that you plan to bring warm layers along. However, if you dress too warmly, that can be a whole other problem.

The looks showcased in our recent "Warm Up" photo series are layered styles that keep our models at just the right temperature for the ever-changing spring weather. Bright looks combined with light washes of denim and light grey give your layers a contemporary touch; and if you want to go for an all-American look, just add a denim jacket to a white undershirt.

Hoodies are also a big trend this spring, so be on the lookout for those cropping up amongst your favorite brands. The Bread & Boxers Hoodie, featured in our photoshoot, has a pullover design and a trendy neck cut.

And heck - if you even want to accessorize a bit more and throw on a lightweight scarf to take you to dinner, we won't complain.
