Hat: c/o Downtown Threads, Sunnies: Zinnia, Cardi & Flannel: Goodwill, Long Sleeve Top: Florence, Italy, Tank (not pictured): Charlotte Ruse, Floral Bracelet: shop in Portsmouth, NH, Ring: Street Vendor in Montreal, Resin Coated Jeans: Levi’s (via Plato’s Closet), Boot Slippers: TargetI had D snap these pictures as we were heading out for an afternoon of errands and Christmas Tree hunting this past weekend. It was a beautiful sunny day and I was more than comfortable thanks to my many layers. On our way downtown we walked past a couple who were bundled up in down coats, gloves, hats, and scarves. We both chuckled because neither of us was wearing a coat and we were plenty warm.
When D commented on how “cold hearty” I’d become I couldn’t help but feel a little smug. For all of the weather challenges Vermont throws at me at least I’ve got one aspect somewhat figured out… now all I have to do is figure out how to wear heels in the winter and I’ll be set!
Some layering tips:
- Avoid looking bulky by starting with your thin layers and building up. I usually start with a tank or tee that is somewhat tight fitting
- Play with colors, textures and fabrics to add interest to your layers
- Layering isn’t just for your top half. Layering tights is a great way to get a fun unique look and I’m really loving thigh/knee high socks over tights and under shorts or skirts
- A scarf is the perfect final layer, look for a color that ties all of your pieces together or opt for a bold color or pattern to add interest to a more monochromatic layered look
What are some of your layering tips?
