Layering is always a practical option when the temperature drops, but this winter it has come to the fore as a trend in itself. From coats to jumpers to jewellery, this season comes with a pile of new layering ideas and techniques. Aside from keeping you deliciously warm, layering allows you to play with your wardrobe and add colours, textures and different styles to your look. Here's our guide on how to master the art of layering beautifully this winter.
Layering knits with dresses
No dress in your wardrobe needs to go in hibernation. Pairing a jumper with a maxi or midi dress is an excellent way to add texture and warmth to your everyday look. Experiment with finer knits under slip dresses and chunkier knits over the top of dresses.
Layering with blazers
You can’t go wrong with blazers or jackets over dresses and skirts. Opt for a bohemian look by pairing it with a floral print dress or stick to a simpler colour palette and run with a chic belted blazer over a block colour or a metallic dress. Bring out your scarves and hats to use as accents.
Layering with a knitted vest
A beautiful knitted vest layered over a crisp white shirt is a look you'll never tire of. Liven up your day with a brightly coloured vest to beat the winter blues and pair with your favourite jeans for a relaxed look.
Layering different textures
Layering with different textures is a very grown-up way to go and you'll feel incredibly well put-together. Layer soft, huggable knits over a shirt or blouse and a gorgeous maxi skirt. Add a fun element with your accessories such as a contrasting scarf, chunky jewellery or some fun boots.
Layering with camisoles
Super versatile, camisoles add a soft, feminine layer to any look. And they make you feel fabulous too. We love this look for Christmas - a pretty cami paired with trousers and our stunning Miranda wrap shirt.
