Layering is something that I do quite often, I love layering shirts over tops or dresses over tops – If it can be layered than I will most likely try to somehow incorporate it into a look somehow. Layering can be used no matter what your style is, I’ve style two outfits, one is a modern 60’s look with a vintage wash denim shirt and a striped turtle neck, and the other is something more gothic and 90’s, I’ve layered a sheer lace blouse with a silky textured spaghetti strap V neck cami – Something super gothic, yet the lace adds the famine edge!

60’s style is renowned for it’s bright colours, mini skirts, high necked tops and dresses and of course their funky boots! However being a lover of black and all things minimal, I decided to give the 60’s trend a bit of a modern update! Something that still fun and cool however super wearable for everyday modern life!
I layered a striped turtle neck with a light vintage washed denim shirt, I think this type of layering with the turtle necks and the shirts, can be quite 70’s too, however paired with this leather mini skirt and these funky heeled boots, I thought the outfit had more of a 60’s vibe! I think the leather biker skirt really helps to add the modern appeal to the look, without taking too much of he 60’s vibes away from the look!

Now onto something a little bit more gothic! I absolutely love this look, you could even make it an evening look by adding some black or silver heels for a laid back evening look! However I’ce kept it quite casual by pairing it with some tights and the same boots from the previous look! I think the whole black and black look can be taken as being quite boring sometimes, however I think that entirely depends on how you style it! I love lace blouses for layering, as there’s just so many ways you can wear them! I decided to layer something on top of the lace blouse, I usually layer tops underneath lace items, however I thought this looked really cool and chic layered over the top!
I then paired it with this lovely faux leather skirt from Forever 21, I love this as it’s ever so slightly A-line, so it’s a really flattering shape! I then added this really gorgeous western style belt around my waist, I thought this really brought the whole outfit together and really finished off the whole ”gothic’ appeal!
