Layering tips for winter will help you achieve that warm chic look to complete your outfit. This winter there are plenty of different ways to layer your outfit to create a trendy look. Most people are scared to layer as they think it will make them look bigger but a perfectly layered look will compliment your curves and create the illusion of a more proportional silhouette.
I chose to go with a Brown, Gold and Black colour scheme. I really love playing with browns & neutrals in winter it creates a crisp and elegant look. The leopard print coat paired with the polka dot blouse creates a playful look as I love to mix textures and prints. Adding the black cardigan over the blouse creates the right balance of colour to complete the outfit and with ModCloth pieces there are such versatile pieces you really have endless options on different outfit combinations. Lauren Conrad always inspired me when it came to layering and with just a few basic tips you will layer like a pro in no time. You can find the entire selection of cardigans and many more at www.modcloth.com/shop/cardigans
Here are some basic tips to get you started and with these layering tips, they are not just for winter layering but for everyday layering for any season:
1. Start with a basic, lightweight top. A solid, neutral or striped top always works best.
2. Add another layer such as a soft cardigan or sweater. Add a splash of colour to liven up your look it will give your outfit more intrigue and depth.
3. Then add a jacket or coat.
4. Next, add a scarf. It’s like strawberries dipped in chocolate. It's a must!
5. Sprinkle on your accessories (bracelets, rings, necklaces).
6. Keep the under-layers more fitted to keep your shape looking slim.
7. If you’re concerned about your waistline, add a belt to slim your waistline.
8. Play with texture. It’s best to incorporate a mix of materials when styling a layered look. If you use all of the same fabrics, you’re look will come off as heavy and dowdy (which can add the appearance of unwanted weight as well).
Now it's your turn! I would love to see how you guys layer for this winter season, and if you have any more layering tips that you would like to share.
