10 Refreshing Ways to Layer Clothes Like a Style Pro This Winter

While we all know the basic ways to layer our clothes in the wintertime — like throwing on a scarf and a beanie — we understand that those outfit ideas can feel tired and overplayed. For this reason, I've decided to scour the interwebs, aka Instagram, to shed some light on some unique ways you can up your style game this season. The key to layering all comes down to being prepared for anything. Does it start to snow all of a sudden? No worries, we've got a sweater, scarf, and a trench coat to keep us nice and toasty. The sun suddenly decides to show up out of nowhere? No problem! — Simply take off your hoodie and stash it until it cools off again (because it sadly always does!).

If you're hoping to achieve the perfect "I just woke up and look this effortless" outfit, then we've got you covered. We're showing you how to add dimension and texture to your looks, while still being practical for the weather. Bring out all of your favorite layering pieces from your bodysuit to your beanie, and get ready because here are 10 refreshing ways to layer your clothes like a style pro this winter.

Wear a turtleneck under a nostalgic sweater and throw a brown jacket on top.

For a '90s-inspired look, style a zip-up cardigan with a leather jacket.

Style your sweats with a long coat, and tie a scarf around your head.

Throw your jacket over your shoulders to give your sweater and skirt combo more dimension.

For a preppy look, style a button-down shirt under a sweater vest. Then, throw on a blazer and a coat on top.

Style a bodysuit with a long trench. Then, put a chunky sweater around your shoulders.

Wear your cozy hoodie and sweatpants with a printed coat on top. Then add style points — and stay hands-free — with a fanny pack across one shoulder.

For a pop of color, style a striped sweater with a hat, long scarf, and jeans.

Choose a long chunky knit sweater and wear it over a fall dress. Finish your look off with combat boots.
