Layering clothing makes sense in San Diego, where typical fall days include crisp mornings, toasty afternoons, and chilly evenings. Now, there’s a new way to layer. “Try wearing your tank or shell longer than your sweater or jacket,” suggests Brenda Post, owner of Curve Couture in Solana Beach. “ When the bottom layer is longer than the outer layer, the lines of the outer layer are emphasized, giving your outfit a whole new look. It’s the opposite of what you’re used to, but it makes a very dramatic statement.” Stop in and she’ll show you!
