This layering style is about showcasing the print of the tee. We’re doing that here by layering two shirts, and essentially thinking about the overshirt almost like a jacket, leaving it unbuttoned so the bottom layer comes through. The idea is simple. It’s a cool print; you want people to see it. In this case I chose an extremely busy print, so the shorts and shirt are relatively plain to balance that out. Balance is a key concept in styling. You don’t want to be visually overwhelming.

This layering situation is about color. It’s definitely cool to focus on one color in your outfit, but it’s also important to break it up so you don’t look like you work at a hospital. In this ‘fit the stripes break up the all-blue outfit. So does the white undershirt. Undershirts are underrated. They can be visually crucial, especially when you use them strategically to play with or against another color. Here, the undershirt references the white socks and white shoes. The silver accessory, the dog tag, I included because this outfit was feeling Navy-esque.
