My Two Cents on Layering

Updated: Dec 7, 2021

I LAYER FOR...WARMTH

Layer for winter days and outdoor winter activities with a soft cotton tee or turtleneck under your sweater, cardigan, or blazer. A vest jacket will keep your core warm and arms free for outdoor activities, or when it is very cold a needed layer under your coat. A vest jacket is also perfect indoors to keep you cozy at a venue where it is a little chilly (i.e., movies, restaurant, etc.).


VERSATILITY

Layering makes it easy to switch from a day to night look effortlessly. For example, drop the blazer or cardigan to expose your silky sexy blouse, or a cold shoulder.


COMFORT

Sometimes I add a tank or camisole layer to bring up a neckline, or a long sleeve tee under a wool sweater that is just a little itchy.


STYLE & FASHION

I like to experiment with layering to add interest to my outfits, such as depth and texture, and to display my personal style. For example: Mixing lengths, layering one color for a monochromatic look, belting a layer and adding pants under a dress for warmth in winter or a modern look.


WORKING MY WARDROBE PIECES

Simply put, wearing what is in my closet.


MY FAVORITE LAYERING PIECES

Tees, tanks, turtlenecks, jacket, blazers, cardigans, vests, vest jackets, scarfs, belts, and leggings.


LAYER WITH LEGGINGS

Can I wear leggings in winter? The short answer is “yes.” If we are talking about a Northern or Midwest winter, fleece or heavy knit leggings are best for outdoors.

Wear your leggings…

  • To the Gym any time of year

  • To lounge or work from home

  • Under a sweatshirt or oversized knit

  • Paired with a turtleneck and long cardigan sweater or duster; belted for added style

  • With your tall or over the knee fashion boots, or snow boots

  • Layered under a skirt or dress instead of tights

Winter does not mean we have to put away colorful and printed leggings. They can be the perfect pick me up for a gray winter day.
