If you’ve ever felt like a complete marshmallow-shaped goober after bundling up for the snow, then you know staying stylish in the cold weather isn’t always easy. Luckily, it’s layering to the rescue! Layering gives you maximum flexibility, ensuring you stay warm when you need to without overheating when you finally make it inside. Plus, if you’ve ever had a morning where you just can’t decide which top you like better, now you don’t have to! When you layer, you can wear all your favorite pieces at once.
All About That Base
So, how to layer successfully? Start with a strong “base” item. This piece anchors your whole outfit and pulls all the disparate pieces together. Choose this item wisely – it will take center stage when you get inside and start shedding layers. Plus, you’ll probably wear it on its own come spring. Your base piece will help you determine the color palette for your entire outfit and figure out how many layers you can add without hulking out.
