Layering a button up shirt under a sweater is something that I have yet to master. I love the look on others but always feel like it adds way to much bulk around the middle to my short torso. It really has everything to do with what you are trying to layer. In my mind, these pieces would work, but in reality they didn't. Even though I like the color scheme of this outfit, I doubt I will ever repeat it. The shirt underneath is too bulky and the sweater is too thin. The shirt would work with a chunkier looser sweater and a thinner smoother shirt would work with this sweater. So, it really does come down to which pieces you are trying to layer.
 
I've also read about putting a tank between the two shirts for a smoother fit, but I've not tried it. I think it would be too uncomfortable. Have you tried it? Do you have any layering tips to share? I'd love to hear them.
 
By the way, did you catch a sneak peek of these shoes on Instagram last week?
