Here's How the Most Stylish Women Keep Cozy, No Matter How Cold It Gets
When the weather dips, there's one trick every fashion girl has up her sleeve: layering. It's an easy way to keep the cold at bay while still being able to wear the statement pieces you love. But there is a method to all the fashion madness. Certain tricks of the trade keep outfits from looking too bulky or busy.
These style stars have plenty of experience taking to the streets in their favorite outfits, no matter what the thermometer reads, so scroll through for major cold-weather inspiration. With these layering tips, you'll soon be piling it all on just to show it off.
Mix Up Your Lengths
Let each piece of your ensemble show by making sure that each layer has a shorter hemline.
Keep Your Whole Look Monochromatic
Try wearing an ensemble that's one color from head to toe; you'll totally stand out from the crowd.
Don't Be Afraid of Being Matchy-Matchy
Coordinated pieces like a sweater set add a streamlined air to a layered look.
Rock Pants Under Your Favorite Dress
A long sweaterdress or even a breezy mini get a cold-weather boost thanks to jeans or flared bottoms.
Add Warmth With a Turtleneck
Any ensemble you've loved for Summer can be repurposed by adding a turtleneck underneath.
Take a Chance With a Sweatshirt
Tone down an ultrafeminine outfit by keeping cozy in a sweatshirt.
Trade Your Coat For a Vest Instead
If you've got a stellar outfit on, a vest lets more of it show through.
Boot It Up
Keep your legs warm by pairing your dresses, skirts, and even skinnies with the tallest boots you own.
Top It Off With Something Unexpected
Skip a coat or sweater for something a little different, like a poncho — or maybe a cape.
Separate Your Layers
If you've piled on multiple pieces, let each item show. Belt your sweater so your top is still visible, and leave your coat open so everyone can see what's underneath.
Dare to Double Up
Sometimes a single coat just isn't enough, so double layer it with a jacket, blazer, or even another coat right underneath.
Keep Everyone Guessing
Choose layers that easily blend together; you'll have everyone doing a double take.
Break everything up by opting for layers with different textures and feels.
Belt Your Scarf
Leave the jacket at home and try belting a blanket scarf instead.
Make Tights a Must
Tights don't have to be worn just under dresses or skirts — add an extra layer of warmth (and intrigue) by wearing them under pants too.
