Light Layering Pieces for Spring!

Your 3rd Layer Always Adds Style…

You’ve heard me say it many times before but…a 3rd layer is an important styling trick! A third layer can make you look slimmer, add style, keeps you warmer, etc. Depending on where you live, the light layers will vary for spring. If you live in Texas, a heavy trench, or moto jacket may not be the best option for you. But a sleeveless trench or light cardigan can be the perfect addition to your spring wardrobe. Keep scrolling to see five stylish outfits all featuring light layers that are perfect for spring!

 Trench Coat

A classic, trench coat is a must-have… and this trench from Club Monaco is so pretty! A trench so versatile you can wear it with jeans, dresses, skirts, pants, etc.

BTW, I still can’t believe I live here. This is called Lizard Head Pass (about 30 min from my house). It’s along the mountain pass road where the views are just stunning!

Sleeveless Trench

If you already have a classic trench you love, this sleeveless trench is a chic, light layer that’s easy to add to your wardrobe. If you saw my spring trends post, you know that the updated or modern trench is big this spring! This trench is from Target and very affordable! I wore it with this balloon sleeve corset sweater, white AG jeans, and chic Vince Camuto mules. If it’s warmer where you live, you can substitute the sweater for a lightweight long sleeve shirt.

Gold Cardigan

If you live in a warmer climate, the moto jacket might not be the best third layer for you. But this metallic, moto jacket by Blank NYC is very chic and edgy for a spring look! You could also try  a different colored moto jacket like white, tan, light gray, pale pink, etc.

Flare Sleeve Cardigan

A cardigan is an easy third layer. I like this cardigan because it has a pretty flared detail that just gives it something a little different and extra! It’s also super comfortable!

  1. I landed on this comment section from reading your April 21st 2018 blog.
    My favorite part of it was your sharing how proud your husband is of you! You can fill your shelves with trophies or walls with plaques-but nothing compares to the priceless support and accolade from your husband (and family). It may not be natural to you, Erin but it should be! Your hard work and dedication is worthy of attention and praise! You go girl! XO ~ Bunnie PS. Look at these images! Insane styling and epic backdrop. Girl…you gotta know YOU are THAT good!

    1. Bunnie…you are the BEST! And, no I truly don’t. People will look at me in the eyes and tell me positive, wonderful things and I will see them… know they are genuine… and for some reason it doesn’t register.
      It takes a BIG moment (like the conference) for me to get it. I’m not sure what the heck that is all about. Does everyone do that? Thank you SO much!! I am SO, SO grateful for your continued support. Erin xo
