Layering On Style

Posted by Jamie Klinger-Krebs on Feb 10, 2016 3:16:19 PM

Richard ChaiOne of the best things about getting ready to face the day is our ability to create different outfits from our wardrobe. We do this by using foundation pieces like sweaters, shirts, coats, skirts, slacks and accessories purchased separately. Then the fun begins as we combine and layer until we’re happy with the look. In a way it’s very much like cooking. We all have favorite recipes right? So, why should dressing up be any different? You put this with that, take away something that doesn’t seem right, and in the end you perfect your own fashion menu.

The best designers know that people like to put their own stamp on the way they look and, in turn, they help us out by creating stylish, wearable pieces. This week we take a look at designer Richard Chai and his take on functional fashion. His designs have a sturdy architectural feeling and they’re anything but flimsy.  While not too extreme, these ensembles do focus on proportion and texture, which is what makes any outfit fashionable.  

TRENDS:

  • Oversize scarves
  • Mixed patterns 
  • Mixed textures
  • Shiny versus matte
  • Screen-printed fabrics
  • Plaids
  • Suits
  • Sweaters
  • Patent leather
  • Cardigans
  • Motorcycle jacket styling

Goodwill offers an opportunity to everyone (from a novice, to an experienced fashionista) to explore their own sense of style without going into debt!  Looking for items that can work with other things in your closet is the best way to approach our well-organized racks of clothing at Goodwill. You just can’t go wrong when you learn the art of layering. Not only will you stay warm as we transition from winter to spring, but you’ll also help support our mission!
