The Essential Layering Fall Style Guide

Sweater weather is finally here! You know what that means, ladies? Besides strolling through the pumpkin patch with the fam' -- hot apple cider in hand, we can now enjoy all things warm n' fuzzy, including cable knit classics, soft cashmere and our brand new Long Sweater Vest trimmed with faux leather (*tres chic!). But with the temperatures steadily dropping, it's easy to overlook what we wear underneath our fabulous cool weather favorites. Since it’s about that time for some serious layering, today on Zeena Uncovered, we're unveiling our Fall Style Guide to give you the rundown on how to rock the most essential Base Layer item: the one and only Basic Tank.

The Basic Tank

Let's be honest, finding the perfect layering top can often feel like a scavenger hunt. We know from experience that when you discover the perfect combination of length and modesty, you cling to it and never let go! In our closet, the Basic Tank is like a secret weapon and we find ourselves wearing a different one at least 4 times a week! We use it as a foundation or the base layer of our style. Since it comes in seven amazing colors, keep scrolling for a few inspirational Fall outfit ideas from Zeena CEO Bayan Jondy.

The combination of layering the Basic Tank with a sweater or sweatshirt is so easy, you'll never run out of options. We love how Bayan has elevated a simple pair of leather pants with the Basic Carmine Tank and boots. With a printed wrap that picks up all those lovely cranberry hues, cute cable-knit is just right for enjoying an autumn stroll.

For the comfiest weekend outfit or a casual day running errands, a classic trench makes a chic layering addition. The Basic Gray Tank works best with other neutrals for a monochromatic look, but we love it just the same with a pop of color!

If there's one tank you need in your closet, it's the Basic Black Tank. We've been known to wear it every day because the button-down design and professional collar looks perfect with a longline blazer. But why stop there? Try yours with a jean jacket and blanket scarf, or a long-sleeved cardigan

We've saved the best for last! When it's time to get fancy, there's nothing like a beautiful flowy kimono draped over wide-legged pants. The easy, breezy-ness of it all is what makes Bayan's evening look take center stage. To elongate your frame, try the Basic Carmine Tank half-tucked paired with a simple black belt.
