Layering, especially during the cold season, is something we all need to learn. Not only will you be protected and covered, but there is the stylish factor we cannot ignore.
It’s easy to look bulky and overpowered by your clothes when you don’t have the right tips on how to look glam and stay warm.
To get you started, here are some amazing tips and tricks on how to layer up and look stylish when it gets cold.
- Get creative
Fashion and style is about expressing yourself. When you take the time to define your own taste, you are able to come up with your signature style. Play around with different colors, patterns and textures and you’ll be surprised how amazing you look without too much effort. The key to this is to avoid looking too busy by pairing items that match in terms of color or even patterns. This way, you are able to layer up and look well put together.
- Work with turtlenecks
You should at least have one or two turtle necks that you can wear during cold seasons. They are one of the closet essentials that are able to make you look stylish while keeping you warm at the same time. Turtlenecks are also a great base to start with when layering up. You can pair it up with denim, leather, fur coats and even dresses. In short, it is a versatile piece you can work through your wardrobe stress free.
Accessories are able to do wonders for your outfit. They can turn a seemingly basic outfit to a whole look. If you want to layer different clothes into a coherent outcome, add a belt to your outfit. Switch things up with thin belts or even big ones to create balance. This is also a great way to flatter your silhouette as you layer clothes. Another great accessory to add to your outfit is a scarf. Scarves add a pop especially when your outfit is monochromatic. Don’t be afraid to try boldly colored or patterned scarves the next time you go shopping because they will definitely come in handy.
- Your outermost layer should be the longest
Layering correctly is also about paying attention to the lengths of the items you have on. In order to look more balanced visually, it’s best to ensure that the outermost layer is the longest. When the longest item is squeezed in between shorter ones, your outfit might end up looking messy. With that said, always start with shorter items as you work your way out to the longer ones.

- Keep the inner layers thin
These days, the weather can be quite unpredictable. The day might start off chilly and gradually get hot as the day goes by. For this reason, you should start with light materials and save the heavy ones for last. This way, you’ll be able to get rid of the heavy layers in case it gets hot during the day.
- Pay attention to your shoes
It’s also essential that you pay attention to your shoes while layering up. They have the power to bring your whole outfit together in a classy and fashion forward way. A cold weather staple to have is boots. We love them because they come in so many designs, patterns and colors so there’s so much to choose from. If you have lots of patterns going on, you can solidify the look with plain colored boots. If your outfit is relatively plain, you have more room for patterned boots.
