Winter is coming, and with it, the cold weather. For some, this means bundling up in layers upon layers to keep warm. But for others, layering can be a fun way to express their personal style and stay fashion-forward all winter long.
In this post, I will give you tips on how to layer like a pro this winter!
Layering your clothing is a great way to stay warm and stylish this winter. Start with a base layer of lightweight fabric such as cotton, synthetics, wool, or silk. This will help keep you warm while still allowing your skin to breathe. Avoid thick materials such as denim and leather that can be too heavy for layering in cold temperatures.
Next, add a mid-layer of thicker material such as wool or flannel – this will lock in your body heat and keep you cozy without being bulky. On top of this layer, add one or two more layers depending on how cold it is outside. You can mix up the materials, from thin knits to chunky sweaters, to create a stylish look.
Layering can be tricky, so make sure you remember these tips when dressing up this winter:
• Start with the lightest layer first and then build from there
• Choose fabrics that are breathable but also thick enough to keep you warm
• Avoid wearing too many similar colors – mix it up with texture and color, so it looks intentional rather than forced
• Layer with items of different lengths, such as longer overcoats over short jackets or cropped tops over long tees
• Balance out your layers on each side – don’t add too much bulk on one side, or you’ll look lopsided
• Add in a scarf or hat for a pop of color or texture
Don’t be afraid to add unexpected layers such as fur coats, leather jackets, and chunky scarves. These can add texture, color, and style to any outfit while keeping you warm. Try pairing a fur coat over a sweater dress with a plaid scarf for an eye-catching look this winter.
Or, if you want something more subtle, go for a wool blazer over a turtleneck and pair it with some statement jewelry for an effortlessly chic look.
Layering doesn’t have to mean buying all new clothes – try adding layers to your current wardrobe for a fresh take on your old favorites. Try pairing a leather jacket over your favorite dress or adding a blazer to jeans and a t-shirt for an instant classy look.
You can also mix and match different pieces – layer a sweater over a shirt, add a scarf or vest, and top it off with your favorite coat – endless possibilities!
When done correctly, layering is an easy way to stay stylish while staying warm this winter season. So get creative and have fun with it! With these tips in mind, you’ll be sure to rock your layered looks all season long.
