There a few things about winter that make the freezing temperatures, cloudy days, and pouring rain, all worth it; seasonal hot drinks, the pending holidays, and the excuse to curl up indoors…but above all else, winter layering! So whether you are hitting the slopes or just heading out into the cold climate outside your door, here are a few fool-proof tips for layering up this season.
Color: First and foremost the color of the pieces you’re layering should work well with each-other, the best way to do this is to stick to either all warm tones, or all cool tones.
Texture: Don a variety of textured layers to add visual interest, you can’t go wrong with heavier knits, leather or even fur.
Pattern: If you’re not completely comfortable with mixing patterns, try pairing a pattern with a heather or marbled solid. They add the same depth as a pattern, but are far more versatile, and easier to layer with prints.
Weight: Starting with a thin base layer, like a silk dress or button-up shirt is the best way to avoid bulk. Adding a cable knit cardigan or pull-over sweater as a second layer will help keep in your body heat. Topping it off with a great leather jacket or wool coat pulls it all together and protects you from the winter elements.
Accessories: Add dimension and warmth a scarf, a thicker pair of tights or socks, a hat and gloves.
Quick Tip: If the temperatures are especially cold where you live, double up on the tights or slip on a pair under your jeans for extra warmth!
