There's a trend that has been slowly spreading since the past seasons, and that is an overlay! An overlay is a women's jacket that can be teamed up with variety of outfits. One thing that we're sure of is that these overlays are perfect for winters, summers, formal occasions, casual outings and more. There are different types of overlays and, their styles are countless. They are perfect for any season and can spice up the style quotient. No matter what your shape and size, when styled correctly, overlays look good on everyone.

If you know what items are prefered and how to match them, then you can easily recreate expensive outfits. There are so many options out there that it can get confusing at times. That is why we, at House of Rare, show you five different ways to style your outfit with overlays!


1.The Printed Overlay

Well, it is the concert season and a black and white  printed overlay paired with a chic black jumpsuit is THE ideal choice for Millenials. You can also pair it with distressed shorts and a tank top for a rockstar vibe. Wear funky accessories and wedges to style the look, and you are ready to dance all night long!

2.The Long Overlay

Looking for a comfy yet chic outfit for the weekend? A long yellow overlay with jeans and a top is your go-to! For a laid back weekend, opt for boyfriend jeans for the rugged look. For a breezy and boho vibe, you can also pair the overlay with denim shorts and a tank top with thigh-high boots. There is no hard and fast rule as to what you should pair with your overlays in terms of shoes. Play around with neon pumps or stilettos if you like experimenting with fashion!



3.The Workwear Overlay


A boxy fit overlay with a jumpsuit is the chicest work outfit ever! It creates a right impression at work meetings as it enhances your personality. You can also wear a pair of strappy heels with a dress to carry forward a day look to a night look. Girls who are not a fan of high heels can choose white sneakers for a uber-comfy look.


4.The Dual Tone Overlay

While pairing an overlay with a tank top, choose a short overlay over a long one for a minimalistic look. A solid colour top carries out the dual-toned fabric and magnifies the look. You can pair it with a colourful trouser but, keep in mind to not go overboard with loud colours and prints. Keep it simple yet stylish!


5.The Overlay Top

An overlay top can be paired with anything and everything! Our personal favourite look is a flared pant jumpsuit paired with an overlay top and some sassy stilettos. It is such a versatile look which can be worn to an early office meeting to a late-night party. This overlay has the power to bring any outfit to life!

Do let us know your favourite kind of overlay and why! We would love to know your thoughts.
