All Your Layering Needs, Right This Way

Tees, tanks, and shirting—the foundation of your transitional wardrobe.

When it comes to transitional dressing, you build outfits around your base layer—tees, tanks, bodysuits, shirting, etc. From there, you can work in blazers, jackets, overshirts, knits, and more as the weather creeps closer toward winter, but it's smart to cover all your foundation first. Try oversized basics from Raey, classics from Theory, menswear-inspired separates from Wardrobe NYC, and though his runway collection skews more performative, Rick Owens basics are forever staples.

The styling can range from something as simple as a tank and blazer to double shirting à la The Row. Somehow, a glimpse of a white crew-neck t-shirt sticking out from beneath the collar of a sweater makes everything a little more chic. Not to mention, this season we've seen many wearing button-downs open over tanks and t-shirts.
