Layering Trend

Welcome back to Trending Now (& Then)!

This week is the last post for this blog, so I decided to switch things up a bit. 

Instead of deep diving into the history of a trend, I will be discussing all aspects of one current fashion trend: layering clothing and accessories. 

Whether it’s for warmth or for looks, there are many different ways to layer clothing. Here are a few examples. 

  1. Turtlenecks under t-shirts 

Suggested by fashion influencer Emma Chamberlain in an InStyle article, layering long sleeve white turtlenecks under fun graphic t-shirts is a wardrobe staple for many young adults today.

  1. Sweater vests 

Sweater vests are another suggestion from Chamberlain. She credits the movie “Napoleon Dynamite” as her inspiration for outfits featuring sweater vests over turtlenecks and button ups. 

  1. Base, mid and outer 

Layers are vital for warmth, especially when hiking. Travel blog Voyager Tripper suggests a base layer that is tight and sweat wicking, a mid layer that is insulated and lightweight and an outer layer that protects from the elements such as snow and rain. 

  1. Tights 

Patterned tights under skirts, dresses and even ripped jeans are making a comeback. They can provide warmth or simply interest to an outfit according to a Cosmopolitan article.

On TikTok, clothing layering is very popular with 21.1M views of #layeringoutfits. While some of these videos are legit, others poke fun at the trend by layering countless pieces of clothing on top of each other.

Layering accessories, especially necklaces, became popular over this past summer. A Vogue article on the subject describes the feelings around the trend perfectly with its title, “More is More.” The article features many instances of celebrities wearing a mixture of beads and chains and chunky and dainty necklaces. 

That’s a wrap on Trending Now (& Then). Thanks for traveling through the decades with me this semester to explore some of the most interesting trends to date.
