Hello Winter Arctic! The last couple of weeks have proven that we are most definitely in the midst of winter. It’s beyond freezing, which means we are likely wearing layers upon layers to stay warm! We know that layering both stylish and yet practical, is important to YOU. This inspired our want to share the art of layering with a few winter wardrobe staples that most every gal should have!
Its winter and we know that clients are wanting to do the turtleneck craze … but not wanting to feel like they aren’t chic.. or worse.. BORING. Remember: when layering, the key is to pair silhouettes that work nicely together. If you have a fitted turtleneck, try out a wide leg pant to tuck the turtleneck into. In this case, we found a great chunky turtleneck sweater in navy.. and paired back to a more structured pencil denim skirt. Tuck the front of the sweater into the skirt. This allows the waist to be defined, just a bit more. We then layered the grey Joseph coat, which is a structured, clean silhouette. Nothing too boxy, so it helps taper the chunky turtleneck. A skinny denim could work nicely too (if skirts aren’t your thing)! We love the pop of the white cross body! So chic, but so winter fresh!
When it comes to mastering the art of layering with a scarf, there are two important details to keep in mind. One being fabric and two being styling! One of the easiest ways to avoid bulk in layering your scarves is by selecting the right type of scarf. With layering in mind, reach for the wool (preferably brushed wool), cashmere and/or silk blend scarves you might have. These fabrics are guaranteed to lay much more flush to your clothing, while also keeping you perfectly warm.
Secondly, it’s all about how you style your scarf! With thicker winter scarves, we recommend that you try the basic loop (see our previous post HERE). The basic loop consists of draping the front of the neck, bringing the ends around to the front and taking one of the loose ends and pulling it through the top of the scarf!
And there you have it! Just a few ways you can approach layering for the remainder of Winter. Stay warm friends, stay warm!
