So it’s that time of the year again when you need to pile up clothes. With winters comes the dreaded feeling of looking just like an Eskimo. But just because it’s cold, does not mean that we need to simply resign ourselves to give up on fashion and style, it only means that we need to be a little more creative while dressing up.
Actually, it is all about figuring out a way to keep warm and still look good. We just feel like wrapping ourselves up in blankets and sweatshirts during winters. So, it can be quite difficult to work out an outfit which is stylish and warm. This is where layering helps us.
There’s a huge reason why layering is becoming such a big trend these days. It is the most practical solution when its nail-biting cold outside. So, don’t hesitate to pile up on layers.
Layering is just teaming up different clothes for creating a cosy yet cool look which also looks effortless.
Theoretically, it is very simple, just add a sweater on a top, team up a dress with a blazer or simply wear tights and boots under a dress. But, if you are up for taking it to another level, then these tips would be helpful to you.
Layering the chunky sweater
Team up a chunky sweater with a long sleeve top for a stylish layered look. A pair of distressed denim would just compliment the look.
Dressing up in thin layers
Well, keeping warm does not necessarily mean you need to put on thick layers. Assorted layers of body hugging knits and a warm scarf can also keep you cosy. Add a thin belt to style the layers and you are all set.
Make a plain white pullover more interesting
Make your white pullover riveting by wearing it over your favourite plaids. Let the sleeves and collar peep out to add details to the look.
Style it with shawl
Essentially it works like a quilt, but it is not restricted to your couch. A shawl can be easily styled over a blazer or a pullover without bulking your arms.
Additional benefit- you can ditch it as and when you feel like.
Add warmth to your cropped sweater
Just wear your cropped sweater over a button up to make it warmer.
Give a new avatar to the lace dress
Who said dresses are not for winters? A bit of ingenious thinking and you can come up with several ways of sporting a dress even during winters. Layer an oversize pullover over the lace dress to give it a skirt kind of look. Add tights and gum boots to keep warm and you just gave a new life to your dress.
Another way of wearing your summer dress is to add a cardigan to it and wear tights and boots. You just created an easy thermal look.
Good things about leather
The good thing about leather is that it keeps warm even though it’s not so thick. Just combine a pair of leather leggings with a sweater or a long coat to make your legs look toned and long.
Loose sweater over loose top- the perfect combo
Let things loose! Slip into a loose top and layer it with a loose sweater and skinny jeans.
High socks under boots
Need extra warmth? Just wear your high socks over the leggings and then put your high boots on. Let the temperature drop baby!
Long sweater over a dress
You know what! I feel that we can wear our dresses more often in winters than in summers. There are so many ways of uniting them with the thermals.
Wear a long cardigan over a dress and tights and you are winter ready.
So, these are some offhand yet swanky ways of dressing in layers that can keep you warm and up to the minute at the same time.
