STYLING

3 WAYS TO WEAR WINTER LAYERS

November 16, 2018

The cold weather is officially here and staying warm has jumped straight to the top of our list of sartorial concerns. But how do you navigate the freezing outdoors, sweaty public transportation and unpredictable heating while still serving up serious style? One word: layering. Here are three ways to pile it on (and strip it off) as the thermostat dictates...

Layer player

For FW18, two coats are better than one — certainly if the Balenciaga runway is anything to go by. This season, the Parisian label brought layering to the next level — think the one where Joey wears all of Chandler's clothes in Friends. To avoid overheating (and back ache), we suggest just three pieces: a trench coat, a sports jacket and a hoodie. Add a bucket hat for a fresh '90s vibe.

The fluffy stuff

Getting out of bed on those gray Monday mornings is easy when you’re swapping out your duvet for a super-soft faux-fur coat. Plus even with the most last-minute of looks, one of these babies will turn the luxe up to superstar levels. Here, we’ve layered it with a pink sweater and a so-this-season snake-print shirt, so you'll still be on point even when they crank up that radiator.

Fleece please

You can add the fleece to the list of gear no longer just reserved for your dad's closet (along with chunky sneakers and hiking boots). This winter, the chillproof zip-up is a wardrobe staple that’s as cool as it is cozy. Buddy it up with tartan trousers and lace-ups for a look that keeps on the right side of orienteering weekend — and don't forget to add some lightweight layers underneath. To finish, a soccer scarf brings the accessories A-game. Go team.
