The Layered Outfit: A Sweater + Another Sweater + Utility Pants + Boots
Winter fashion can be tough, sure. But not totally dreadful. In fact, we'd go so far as to say that dressing for the cold is one of our favorites. Why?! Because it leaves tons of room for creativity. A skill that remains at the crux of said creativity? Layering! But before you get overwhelmed or pigeonhole layering as totally pragmatic, believe us when we say that there's a certain artistry to it that makes Winter dressing fun. Truly!
The genius of layering lies within those out-of-the-box, clever, and sometimes quirky whims. An extra sweater styled as a scarf here. An unexpected pop of glitter via sparkly socks there. Fitted mock-neck tops worn beneath lower necklines to ward off chill. And so forth. Since these layering hacks aren't always the most intuitive, we viewed it as our duty to bring you some creative Winter outfit ideas that are A) stylish (duh) B) incorporate layers, and C) are easy to pull off (phew!). Does it get any better? We think not.
