As the summer becomes a distant memory and the days start to become shorter and cooler, it’s time to think about how you should be dressing for autumn. The answer lies in layers!
As the temperature starts to drop, selecting an outfit can be a tricky chore as you’re often tackling chilly mornings, warm afternoons, and showery evenings. How are you supposed to get it right? In this quick guide, we will explain to you how to layer in Autumn with clothing that is customised with your branding or designs.
Autumn Base Layers
This is probably the most important layer of all, especially as it’s the layer that stays on no matter how warm or cold you are! Base layer tops and T-Shirts are the perfect lightweight and breathable options to go under your other garments. The ultimate choice will utilise a moisture-wicking fabric which helps to regulate your temperature and will keep you feeling comfortable the whole day.
Long sleeve T-Shirts are excellent as a base layer, they are easy to add your brand or design to and look great when you decide to remove your other layers.
Autumn Mid Layers
Once your breathable base layer is in place you’ll want to think about the second layer of clothing. In most cases, this is the garment that is most likely to be on show throughout the day, so you’ll want to make sure that this is the best choice.
There are multiple garment types that suit this layer, it really depends on what you are doing, and how you would like to be perceived – especially if the garments are being worn as workwear.
Shirts come in lots of styles and are perfect for embroidery. The right shirt can create a formal or more relaxed look, depending on what you are going for.
