It is officially that time of year where we find ourselves not knowing what to wear, torn between wanting to keep it glamorous while staying warm and cozy. The simple way we have found to combat the cold is by layering your clothes.
In this guide, we will take you through your layering options, to help you get through the cold season in a chic and sensible way.
Layers are a convenient way of staying warm during the colder months. You stay warm outside, and can easily shed your outer clothes to get you to the right temperature when indoors. It's very convenient.
Layering has a unique and one of a kind ability to expand your wardrobe.
If you layer correctly, it should not add bulk or weight to your look. If you are worried about adding clothes weight or being uncomfortable this guide is just for you and addresses your concerns while still inspiring your trendy style.
Make layering simple by following these four basic rules.
Rule 1: Wear Inner Layers That Are Thin And Comfortable.
Inner or base layers should be light but provide coverage should you need to remove your outer layers. This can be anything from simple everyday tops to blouses. The idea is to have a top on that you can comfortably strip down to should you need to remove your outer layers.
Rule 2: Easily Remove Outer Layers.
Outer layers typically are jackets, coats, cardigans, sweaters etc. Choose ones that can be easily removed in public, revealing inner layers that work as a complete outfit. The last thing you want is to be stuck in a hot sweater indoors.
Rule 3: Don't Forget To Accessorise
Remember that your layering does not stop at your clothes and shoes; it continues throughout your entire body. Think hats, beanies, and scarves as the ultimate functional accessories and jewellery to balance your look if necessary.
Rule 4: Match Layers Appropriately
You want to be in a position where removing a layer or two still leaves you with a workable outfit that you are proud of. Choose your layers wisely with this in mind - ensure colours and textures work as well as top and bottom combinations.
