With a drop in the temperature, it’s quite essential to be prepared with simple, chic layers so that you can flaunt your fashion without the fear of catching a cold! Taking inspiration from Autumn/Winter trends of the year, here are a few super easy yet effective ways to layer up like a pro!
The art of layering
Layering right is all about putting the right clothes together to create a winning look. Just make sure you mix and match pieces that complement each other and you’ve got the perfect winter outfits for any occasion! You can go for a slouchy long cardigan paired atop a basic cotton button down shirt or denim shirt. Complete the look with midi-culottes and accessorize with a fat belt and ankle boots for that ultimate effortlessly chic vibe. You can also layer a graphic tee with a suede jacket, a tassel scarf and denims for that perfect layering-meets-boho look. You can also wear the season’s ‘it’ trend camouflage in the form of a camo jacket layered over a black tee, camo joggers & athleisure shoes on those weekend trips!
Let the turtlenecks do the talking
Turtlenecks are no doubt one of the most versatile clothing items that are apt for layering during this season. You can pair a turtleneck with a denim jacket on the top and complete the outfit with trousers and lace-up boots. Yet another head-turning layered look is the hooded/belted coat + turtleneck outfit. You can finish off this look with stockings or straight cut trousers and block-heeled ankle boots. Also, last but not the least you can pair this versatile fitted sweater with a boxy top on the top and a pencil skirt with stocking and knee high boots for a classy chic appeal. So, bring out those high neck pullovers and style them away to glory!
Jumpers to the rescue
Jumpers can be your winter-time BFFs as they keep you warm by letting you create stylish outfits around them. Double up on the jewel hues this season as you pair up an emerald green cable knit crew neck jumper and a ruby red or sapphire blue leather vest on the top. Pair this with ripped denims, leg warmers and leather trainers for that ultra-rad yet tough look. You can also team up a jumper with a fringed suede vest on the top, a skater skirt and cowboy boots for that chic western look. These not-so-usual jumper outfits are sure to give your fashion game a boost and keep your winter outfits high on the style scale, while keeping you snug & cosy.
