Layering can be as simple as throwing on a cardigan or a long sleeve shirt over your outfit when it's cool and then taking it off or tying it around your waist or hips when it warms up.

While shopping to create and add to this perfectly curated wardrobe might be a casual pastime to some, to me, it's serious business.
