If creative layering is not your cup of tea, start by piling up light to heavy fabric clothes. Your lightest clothing such as a tank top, shirt, leggings, loose tops first followed by heavier clothing. Make certain all of these pieces are loose fabric, making sure you feel at ease to move around. Follow with a button-down shirt or cardigan and finally top it off with a sweater or jacket that isn’t too huge or too tight and shows off the pieces underneath. Or you can stick to the basic accessories such as a scarf, lots of necklaces, and a hat.
