Step up your layering game, ladies! Even if those temps keep dropping – you can look chic and stay cozy. Bundle up. No need to freeze in fashion. Lift that fashion burden of looking frumpy in the cold. You can stay cozy and chic even in the cold. And – you can do this right now. A little twist to a layering technique. So obvious – yet, are you doing it?
Put together these layering outfit ideas in seconds! In your closet. Right now. No need to buy one more item to stuff into your space. All you need to do is think. Keep it simple. Layering is about…adding layers. What are the rules? Are there any? Or…can you try out new ways to layer while being seriously super basic about it?
Here’s the thing. Layering has traditionally meant adding a blazer or a jacket or a scarf (or all of the above) to the foundation of your outfit. Check and Check. Been there – done that. <and love that….> But…. What about adding a SWEATER to your SWEATER?
Here’s how to look cute in the snow and STILL stay warm. Layer a sweater over your sweater. The TOP TRENDING item this year has been chunky sweaters. Guessing you have a pile of them by now. If not, THESE are 40% off with NO code needed!
Winter Layering Guidelines
- First layer: Choose your fave chunky sweater like THIS one (now on sale!).
- Second layer: Choose a LONG cardigan to add on top, like THIS one.
- Other Outfit Essentials: Because you are adding bulk to the top (cozy bulk, to be specific), keep the rest of your look sleek. Camo leggings = perfect = on major rotation x ten = need more!
- Accessorize: A simple necklace (like THIS one) and some stackable rings (LOVE these) maintain a chic balance so the look does NOT get overwhelming. No big statement pieces, please. The layers of your sweaters is plenty.
Simple, right? Try it. Go to your closet. Find a few faves and see how you can mix and match to make it work! #TimGunn.
