I know many of you love toppers, but I really struggle with layering!

High necklines make me feel like a big block with a topper- so I've bought scoop necklines. They feel right with a topper, but bare without. Scarves? Fuggeddaboudit it! Just more clutter!

Asymmetry, like this sweater below, or wraps, just don't really look right with any topper. Buttons + toppers feel cluttery, ditto collars.

My tunics need long toppers, my shorter tops are fine with shorter ones. Not to mention coordinating colors for them all...

Then coats need to be extra big to go over the lot, unless I want to carry the topper in my bag.

Layer-lovers, what are your topper strategies?
