Winter Layering 101

July 13, 2014

Despite the bitter cold and rain, winter need not be a time to feel blue. It’s as a chance to experiment and get creative with different textures, colours and stylish accessories. One key element to winter dressing is mixing things up with layers. Here are tips for layering this winter:

Keep the base simple

By keeping your base colour simple, additional layers and colours are more easily thrown into the mix. Hues such as cream, white or light grey are best. To avoid enlarging your silhouette, base layers should also be thinner than additional layers.


Vests allow you to add texture to your look without overbearing the rest of your ensemble. They are the perfect way to add that extra touch of style and warmth; think fur, shaggy, denim or biker leather.

Experiment with accessories

Accessories are an easy way to show off your personality and an affordable way to trial trends without having to invest in a whole new wardrobe. Stylish accessories such as leather gloves, a floppy winter hat and a neck-warming scarf are fantastic options this season.

Get bold

Investing in a statement skirt, shirt or dress this winter is a great way to stand out from the sea of grey. Fierce animal prints, monochrome and florals are a perfect addition if the other layers are kept simple.

Investment jacket

Investing in a simple warm jacket is the final way to ensure you stay warm and fashionable this winter. We recommend selecting in a piece that will last a couple of seasons. Keep the style traditional and the colour simple so your accessories can take the lead.
