Let’s face it: Fall is a pretty tricky season to dress for. As we get ready in the morning, we may think we’re throwing on a perfect autumn ensemble — until the afternoon hits and we start sweating buckets.

Layering is the answer to this problem. There are many styles you can choose from to make your look more appropriate for the heat of the day. The cool evening hours. Wearing different types of tops and knits is one of the easiest ways to nail the assignment — but we also adore the idea of rocking a skirt and having tights on hand in case it gets chilly. If you want to see how we’re staying stylishly comfortable this fall, check out the pieces we’re shopping below!
