The Art of Layering

That's right, it most definitely is an art. I have been practicing numerous times to master layering on polyvore and looklet for the present winter months. I wanted to enhance my skills, but unfortunately I am not quite there yet. Sadly, there is a fine line between the 'lovely layered look' and the 'twice your size' look. My first go on looklet was not only pathetic, but the model looked rather massive with all those chunky knits and excessive jewelry. I have to say, I am not an ecstatic fan of Rumi Neely's blog; fashiontoast, but I can't resist commending her on the amazing talent she possesses. She is effortlessly able to pull off those bulky sweaters all the time. I'm only a a rookie in the fabulous fashion and style world, but I still wish I knew her secret. As for me, I will continue practicing...
About the photos; these are examples of perfect layering. The second photo is so pretty. It's definitely something I would feel gorgeous in. Especially with that watercolor flowy dress. The tan bag ties the outfit in together wonderfully.
The first photo is pretty, but the brown sweater just doesn't do it for me. I was thinking along the lines of a baby blue oversized sweater to give the look a 'spring-y' feel. What do you think?
