It is the season for layering, the time to put together layers in different formations to create interesting looks. But layering can be tricky if you are new to the game. You do not want to look bulky neither do you want look like a mishmash of prints and textures. So, to help you ace layering we caught up with Saaksha Bhat, one half of Saaksha and Kinni label to tell you how to layer your outfits like a pro!

"It’s always super fun to use print on print when it comes to layering, for example, a jacket, shirt and skirt all in the same print. It makes a statement whilst remaining young and fresh."

"Wear a bustier over a shirt to create an experimental, chic ensemble. That way your outfit says smart, whilst adding a pop of fun with the bustier."

"Throw a blazer or jacket over a co-ord set. This adds proportion and also elevates the outfit from day to evening."

"A white shirt is an essential in layering - it works well under a slip dress, over a long sleeve shirt, and because it’s neutral, the possibilities are endless."

"Playing with different sleeve lengths is also key in layering. Pair a short-sleeved coat over a long-sleeved shirt or simply roll up sleeves to reveal colour or textures."

"Add a drape over a mini skirt/shorts and shirt co-ord set. It gives an indo-western spin to an otherwise standard ensemble."

"Wear a waistcoat over a dress to create an interesting shape and turn a day dress into evening wear."
