Easy Layering for Winter

November 21, 2015

There is no denying it, winter is here and with the plummeting temperatures, it’s time to wrap up. That’s right, it’s all about easy winter layering!

It can be hard not to look like the Michelin Man when you are wearing four layers but if you choose them carefully you will still look cute, and more importantly be warm.

Tips for easy winter layering

Make sure you start with the basics, I’m not talking thermal underwear, unless you’re in the highlands that is! Winter may be here but I still want to rock a bare leg, however, I don’t want to freeze to death so I’ve opted for some nude tights. I know I know, no one likes the shiny disco tights look so luckily these are from Wolford and are pretty much the rolls royce of hosiery! They are like a second skin and will keep the chill off your legs. Play with fabrics, I popped on a silk shirt under my dress, which I picked up in a charity shop for £4!  Vintage and 100% lambswool none the less, check out my previous post for some vintage shopping tips. I know a sleeveless coat is not the most practical as you know, no sleeves and all but it’s surprisingly warm and great for layering.

For those really cold days the best thing to do it pop on a cape or a blanket sized scarf, they are warm, versatile and whilst they may look like a giant blanket when  first worn, add a belt to cinch in your waist and no matter how much excess fabric there is you will have a perfect silhouette.

    […] I’ve got to say 2015 is the year I found my love for checks, I’ve always loved pattern but I’ve developed a serious relationship with checked outerwear! The checked cape is a firm favourite with the cherry checked coat a close second.
