Layer like a pro this winter
Layering is still in style, thankfully. But the trend is more than just piling on a bunch of clothes. The key is to balance all your layers to create a cohesive look. Here is how to do it:
The midi dress is the perfect layering staple. It falls just above the knee so it doesn't weigh you down when you pile on the extras. Bring out your unused summer dresses and incorporate them into your winter wardrobe. Additionally, head to a used clothes store to seek out shift and shirt dresses.
A long cardigan sweater is another great layering piece. It's also a great place to add extra style to your look. Seek out options with cable knit or ribbed detail.
Designers aren't leaving you out in the cold this season. They have added a few extra luxuries for comfort into their legging styles. Pick up thick or fleece-lined leggings. These legwear items have the same look as their thin counterparts, yet they'll keep you warm.
Look for thick wool scarves that pair well with your sweaters and dresses. Add a beanie and the look will be complete.
