By combining lightweight fabrics like chiffon or cottons with heavier materials such as leather, velvet, or denim, it’s easy to create an interesting layered look that is both comfortable and stylish.
This also allows for more playful experimentation with texture and color, which can be paired with simpler pieces to create a truly unique look.

The last thing that makes this aesthetic so appealing is the emphasis on comfort.
The idea of being able to style yourself without compromising your own personal level of comfort is incredibly attractive in today’s world. This trend allows for that without sacrificing any part of the fashion experience.
