Get Stuff We Love
Summer isn't over yet, but we're already adding layers to our everyday looks. Before you start pulling down every scarf and jacket in your closet, we're not talking about bundling up for the cold. This layering is all about adding a new level of dimension to your style.
From your beauty routine to your outfit and accessories, the TODAY Style Squad has all the tips you need to spice up a basic look.

Bobbie's pick: Layered beauty
Layering makeup definitely doesn't have to look caked on. In fact, adding subtle dimension to your makeup routine could help you finally achieve that glow-y, no-makeup look. Or, it can amp up your standard routine for a night out on the town!
When it comes to skin care, prepping is always key. You want to make sure you're applying the lightest products (like serums) first, then move on to the thicker creams and moisturizers.
With eye shadow, always start with the lightest shade first. This will act as a base for the entire look. Then use your chosen eyeliner to define the eye and contour with cream shadows. Add a powder shadow to set. You can use a dark powdered eye shadow to set the eyeliner or blend it out to create a sexy, smokey effect.

Jill's pick: Layered accessories
We love a good arm party! Whether you're mixing precious metals or throwing some costume jewelry into the mix, it's a great way to show some personality. This season, even guys are getting in on the action with layered leather bracelets for men.
Take the layering trend even further by throwing on multiple necklaces with different lengths or adorn your hands with pretty rings for a chic touch.
