Double the Layer, Double the Fun

Going to school back east, it wasn't unusual to see two polos layered atop one another for an especially preppy look. The more Ralph Lauren you could muster, the better. They may not be polos, but I've managed to amass quite a collection of button-downs in my day and I came across this blogger's snapshot where she layered two atop one another, in contrasting but still complementary colors. The fabrics have to be super lightweight for it to work (lest you overheat) and the cuts have to be similar so that the buttons line up just so. I think it's fun with a sweet skirt or paired with something feminine to offset the double dose of tailoring. A novel idea for effective layering.
