TikTok's Newest Fashion Trend: The Sandwich Method

In this blog post, Olivia + Laura share the newest fashion trend from TikTok and what it means to sandwich dress.

The journey to finding your signature look can sometimes feel overwhelming. With countless trends, styles, and opinions circulating, it’s easy to lose sight of your own unique style. But, fear not, there's a tried and true technique known as the Sandwich Method that can serve as your guide through the maze of fashion choices.

What is the Sandwich Method?

The Sandwich Method is a styling technique that involves layering garments and accessories in a strategic manner to create a cohesive and visually appealing outfit. Just like making a sandwich, where various ingredients are stacked between two slices of bread, this method involves layering different pieces of clothing to achieve a balanced and harmonious look.

Your top layers and your shoes should be the same colour in order to properly achieve the sandwich method. If not, your outfits might seem more top heavy or bottom heavy. Monochromatic outfits are also a solution to this issue!

How Does it Work?

1.Base Layer: The first step is to start with a solid foundation. This typically involves selecting a basic piece of clothing that serves as the canvas for your outfit. This could be a simple t-shirt, blouse, or pair of trousers in a neutral color.

2. Middle Layers: Once you have your base layer in place, it’s time to add some depth and dimension to your outfit. This is where you can get creative and experiment with different textures, patterns, and colors. Layer on a cardigan, blazer, or sweater to add warmth and style to your look. Don’t be afraid to mix and match different pieces to create visual interest.

3. Top Layer: The final step is to finish off your outfit with a statement piece that ties everything together. This could be a bold jacket, statement accessory, or eye-catching pair of shoes. The key here is to choose something that adds a pop of personality to your look without overpowering the rest of your outfit.

The beauty of the Sandwich Method is its versatility. Don’t be afraid to experiment with different combinations and styles until you find what works best for you. Fashion is all about self-expression, so embrace your unique style and have fun with it!

Mastering the art of styling is all about finding balance, creativity, and confidence. So, next time you’re standing in front of your closet feeling overwhelmed, remember the Sandwich Method and let your creativity flourish!
