New Ways To Layer Everyday Pieces

Despite being sartorially adventurous, we are all guilty of falling into a style rut at this stage in the season. Since exposing swaths of skin will result in immediate frostbite, this collection of seven outfit ideas—from bloggers like Leandra Medine from Man Repeller and Shini Park of Park and Cube—provide welcome inspiration for warm looks that you can achieve with items you already own.

    Tights Under Cuffed Jeans:

    We’ve been secretly layering tights under our pants since our school uniform days, but when we saw this Arty Filles look, we instantly forgot why we were ever ashamed about it. Follow her lead and break out the cuffed, baggy jeans you stashed until ankle-baring weather, and keep the tights in the same color family as your boots.

    Long Cardigan Under A Blazer:

    Cocktail-length dresses are only for the brave in colder temperatures, but toss on a long, fluffy cardigan and an oversized blazer, as seen here on Hedvig Opshaug of The Northern Light, and it transforms your frock into a warm office look that you can wear straight to dinner. Once layered, if you can’t lift your arms, you need to pick a larger blazer.

    Turtleneck Under A Plaid Shirt:

    A thin turtleneck provides the ideal canvas for serious statement accessories. With this look from Leandra Medine of Man Repeller as your guide, layer your thinnest turtleneck under an oversized plaid button down, pop the collar, throw on a chunkier top sweater, and finish with every piece of statement jewelry you own.

    Lord and Taylor Merino Wool Turtleneck Top ($50) in Aluminum Heather

    A Slip Dress Over Jeans and Under a Turtleneck:

    Another way to incorporate a feminine dress into your winter wardrobe is wearing it over jeans, as shown in Shini Park of Park and Cube’s outfit. Pick a filmy slip dress that hits at mid-thigh, top with an oversized turtleneck, and allow the wisps of the dress to flutter as you walk.

    The color and texture contrast in Sara Strand’s look packs a serious punch, not to mention some welcomed insulation. To emulate, layer your button-down under a leather shell, or why not try the concept in dress form? Choose a leather dress that is loose and structured, and a slightly longer shirtdress (around 3 inches longer) so that the exposed tails look intentional.

    Rag and Bone Prairie Dress ($495) in White

    Double Blazers Over a V-neck and Lace Camisole:

    Perfect for your next evening out: wear a deep v-neck sweater over your lace-trimmed camisole and slip on a slim-fitting blazer as seen in Charlotte Hellberg of Chaloth’s look. Finish with an oversized blazer and you can gradually peel off the layers as you thaw out.

    Theory Lanai Blazer in Bistretch Cotton Blend ($355) in Black 

    Vero Moda Lace Panel Cami ($32) in Black

    Chunky Open Necked Sweater Over A Thin Crewneck Sweater:

    Rather than reaching for a long-sleeved henley, substitute it with a high, crew neck knit and allow it to peak out from a sweater with a looser neckline. The gray and camel combination here on Arty Filles is ideal with medium blue denim for weekend errands.
