EST 1971 Autumn Layering and Styling


As the cold weather approaches, trans-seasonal layering becomes essential to keeping us warm and cosy. Using our fun tips and tricks to different layering styles, we’ll have you feeling more confident than ever!

How to style and layer over dresses

The time of sweatshirt season has come, and everyone has already started ditching the dresses, breaking into their wintery wardrobes, and jumping into their tracksuits and jumpers. But don’t pack those dresses away just yet!

As women’s clothing is constantly changing, our style of 100% organic cotton casual dresses will go perfectly with our range of bright bespoke classic sweatshirts or for a more fun style our Zebra Cross Sweatshirt in Bright Green or Frayed Anchor Sweatshirt in Hot Pink will add a fun pop of colour and print to your look. Creating a chic and creative outfit and leaving more options to experiment with different designs and textures for the outer layers.

Not warm enough? Try layering with a puffer jacket or coat on top for extra warmth. Styling over the dress and sweatshirt can be tricky but not impossible. Attempt going for the same neutral tone colours as your dress, this will compliment the contrasts in different colours, and create the perfect blend of a sophisticated look.

Playing with different pieces from your wardrobe such as these can help expand and express your own personal style.

How to style and layer over a top, t-shirt or shirt.

Autumn style means wearing multiple layers, such as jumpers with jackets over the top, but how do we layer over a top or t-shirt, to not only keep us warm but to also enhance our stylish outfit?

The first step to layering over a top or t-shirt would be to choose the colour, print or design of your top. Using our women’s long sleeve tops and t-shirts in a basic colour such as white or black underneath the Leopard Star sweatshirt, leaving you with the chance to use a pop of colour over the top to build the character of your outfit.

Another great way to style over a shirt is to use a plain colour as your canvas such as white, black or grey creating the opportunity of spicing up your outfit using your favourite EST 1971 sweatshirt. Our Sister brand Shirty Style has the most beautiful range of Women's Shirts and Shirtdresses that go perfectly yo  wear with our EST 1971 clothing. Try opt for a print or textured over layer to complete your look with a personal unique touch, whilst creating an effortless colour combination to suit any occasion. Our XO Cotton Sweatshirt in Navy/ Hot Pink is the perfect layering addition for a vibrant style.

How to style and layer in different ways

Layering doesn’t always have to be worn the common way. Try using different techniques to layering such as wearing your sweatshirt over your shoulders or attaching it to your waist. This technique comes in handy on a sunny morning walk or just for running some errands.

Unsure on how to style this technique? When layering a sweatshirt over your shoulders or around your waist, try using a fitted long sleeve or a cropped jumper for a subtle yet stylish look all whilst staying warm. Using bright pops of colour like the XO Kiss sweatshirt to highlight your outfit around your waist or over your shoulders, this is a perfect quick-and-easy outfit option to start your day.
