Yarra here, offering  more tips on what to buy and how to wear the styles that will flatter your silhouette. Layering creates movement and draping that accentuates your curves while giving you coverage. One of our favorite fabrics for layering is Art Silk because it allows you to achieve this effect without adding extra bulk.

Layering tips for your most flattering look:

  1. Dress in one color, tone on tone dressing elongates the figure.
  2. Try leggings under a dress. Layering leggings under dresses lends warmth (while it is still cold outside) and adds length to any silhouette.
  3. Wear a dress as a tunic over dressy pants for a daytime look.

Here are three must-have layering pieces that Stella is offering this season: the Tiburon Tunic, the Freestyle Dress, and the Simply Chic Pants.

The Tiburon Tunic, now available in art silk, layers beautifully. It can be worn with leggings or jeans for a more casual look. This is a great style to invest in because it can be worn so many different ways.

The Freestyle Dress is that LBD that can go anywhere. This is a buy-now style because it is the perfect length for any height. Try adding a belt or a long necklace to amp up this look even more.

Wear the Freestyle Dress with the Simply Chic Pants for a stylish and comfortable look. Are you looking for cool pants to change up your look? Try these for an instant update this season.

The Freestyle Dress over the Ready To Wear Leggings gives you a lean and long look.

How To Dress : Layering Tips To Help You Find Your Most Flattering Look


Yarra here, bringing you new styling choices for your body shape. This was my first time taking the studio photos for this series, and wow was it fun! See pictures of me behind the camera in my new Stella favorite: the Endless Ease Skirt.



The Inverted Triangle: Get out of the “go to black” (see author’s example) by mixing up top colors. The In Good Company Cardigan (shown in ceylon) pairs beautifully with the Either Way Top (shown in port, so yummy!). The fantastic drape of the cardigan is complemented by the simple line of the top and the sleek line of the Slimming Ankle Pants (shown in black). It’s a must-have for any body type!


The Rectangle: Just in case you have a party to go to this fall…
Disclosure: I love belts. I wasn’t always this way until a coworker showed me that a belt can create the illusion of a waist for any figure. What to wear with a fabulous belt? How about a jersey tunic such as the Engimatic Tunic? Layer any tunic over Stella’s organic cotton Ready to Wear Leggings and you are good to go!

The Circle: Explore new silhouettes with this ensemble. The lovely Envelop Yourself Coat can work for many body types because it can be worn many ways! Wear this coat over the Life is Good Top (shown in dove) paired with the draped Bottom Line Pants (shown in black). It’s instant elegance for any day or night occasion.


The Triangle: Keep warm in this luxe look. Layer the New Formula Cardigan (shown in port) over the At Ease Top (shown in dove) to create texture and soft layers. For the bottom, keep it simple with the Clear Cut Skirt (shown in black).


The Hourglass: Get funky with your style! Try mixing the Must Have it Sweater (shown in ash) with the Play Your Cards Right Jacket (in jade only) over the Ready to Wear Leggings (shown in black). This is such a fun and unpredictable look — just pair it with boots and a pendant and you are ready to go!

However you express yourself through your clothes this Fall, make sure you have some fun! Clothing and fashion doesn’t have to be that serious. Honor what is unique about you and enjoy, because life is short!
