Layers. Whether we’re talking hair, cake or clothes, we can’t get enough. That must be why this winter we’re throwing dresses over jeans, shawls over suits and jackets over…jackets. If you need a break from your winter wardrobe of sweaters, skinny jeans and boots, read on.
PAIR YOUR FAVORITE DRESS WITH JEANS
Your favorite ’90s look is back in full effect. A wrap dress that cinches just so at your waist but flows around your jeans is a surprisingly sophisticated look. Add some raw hems and you’re basically an updated Donna Martin.
DOUBLE UP ON JACKETS
Give your down puffer a rest and layer two jackets instead. The trick is to find one with slim enough sleeves to fit underneath.
DARE TO WEAR SOCKS AND LOAFERS
What was once a fashion faux pas is now one of the cutest ways to get some extra mileage out of your backless loafers. Embrace your inner nerd.
TRY A “MORE IS MORE” APPROACH
A sweater over a dress over a turtleneck? Yes! Add a brightly colored hat and jacket for bonus style points (and bonus warmth).
ADD A SHAWL TO YOUR SUIT
No more shivering through work meetings. This look is simultaneously smart and cozy.
STYLE YOUR SHIFT DRESS WITH A STATEMENT BLOUSE
The true workhorse of your wardrobe, your shift dress even wears well through winter. Just pop it over a statement blouse and tights.
STICK A SWEATER UNDER YOUR SUMMER JUMPSUIT
Avoid channeling your childhood days in OshKosh B’Gosh by choosing minimalist cuts and neutral colors.
