How to Layer for Winter | London Bridges
Keeping the Base Layer Sleek
Instead of pulling out your bulkiest clothing items, streamline your apparel base with something like a long dress. To stay warm, add tights and boots to your look. Keep your head warm with a knit hat, and if your hair is long, consider wearing down. Doing so will keep your neck warm.
Add Another Layer on the Bottom
Clever layering tips include adding a skirt or dress over your skinny jeans or leggings. The look is an easy one to pull off, and with the added material, you’ll have another buffer between your legs and the chilly winter air. To do it well, keep an eye on the proportions. We recommend doing this look with a full-skirted mini. The style is a fun look for everyone including little girls.
It Is Sweater Weather After All
You’ll also want to add a plush sweater. Advice for how to layer for winter includes wearing a cashmere-blend knit, a super popular style that's soft, warm and available in almost EVERY color you could imagine. The fabric combination will skim your frame without adding bulk. For more dimension, buy a sweater with a prominent cable-knit pattern. Also, look for one that drapes below the waist. This length is flattering for any body type.
Boots Are Made for Walking
Boots that rest flat over your knee are easy to find and oh so much fun to wear. They’ll look fashionable and show that your layering skills have got game. Over-the-knee boots are also nice and warm since they’ll cover more of your legs. Collect several pairs of boots to have more than one styling option.
It’s Coat Time
Long coats are all the rage right now and look simply stunning over long dresses. Pair this look with a long necklace or an on-point scarf. Finding an long, insulated coat adds the warmth without the extra padding look. After all staying warm while still showing off how good you are at layering is the goal we're going for!
