5 Tips for Layering Your Clothes Like a Pro
We are getting closer and closer to those colder months! How are you feeling about it? We have mixed feelings. Hahaha. But we are definitely excited about showing off all of our cute fall and winter wear! There’s just something about layered outfits that make you look so chic, right?! If you’re wanting some help in this category, here are 5 tips for layering your clothes like a pro.
Bring on all the pumpkin patches, winter parades, ice skating, and hot cocoa runs. We are so excited about the traditions that come with this time of year! And we are even more excited because we get to wear all of our favorite clothes. We hope you feel the same after reading through these tips! And we know by the end of this you’ll totally be ready to brave these colder days with us. Time to bring out all of our warm and cozy layers!
Tip #1 for Layering Your Clothes Like a Pro: Always use a lightweight neutral color as your base.
Starting with a lightweight neutral color base is always a safe choice. This will help you have that soft and cozy layer that your skin will love you for! Plus, the neutral color will make it easier for you to add more colors as you layer up.
It can also be tricky to know what to wear in these colder seasons because when we go inside we have to take half of the layers off. So, what’s the best balance? That’s why wearing multiple layers is your best choice because you have more control over what you’re comfortable with. Too cold to wear short sleeves, but too hot to leave your puffy coat on? Good thing you have a cardigan on underneath!
Tip #2 for Layering Your Clothes Like a Pro: Mix in different textures and materials.
This is where you can start to have some fun. You can find some type of statement print on your sweater or cardigan and pair it with your neutral base. Or, you can add a cardigan with a really soft texture to boost up that cozy aspect. (This one would be great for that!) You could also add a leather jacket or a shacket. Those would be perfect for adding some fall vibes to your overall outfit!
Tip #3 for Layering Your Clothes Like a Pro: Make sure at least one layer provides insulation.
Layering clothes isn’t something just trendy to do–those of us who live in really cold places during the fall and winter seasons need layers to stay warm! So, if you are one of those lucky people (don’t worry, we are too!) make sure at least one of your layers provides you with some insulation–especially if you will be outside for long amounts of time.
Your insulation layer could look like wearing leggings or tights underneath your pants or dress. It could also mean wearing a long-sleeved tee that hugs your skin underneath your sweater. And it could even mean doubling up on your socks! There are tons of ways you can layer up your outfits that will keep you nice and warm even on the coldest days.
Tip #4 for Layering Your Clothes Like a Pro: Make sure your layers create a nice color palette.
Were you also one of the kids growing up who looked like a crayon box once you got all of your winter clothes on? It’s pretty cute as kids, but we probably couldn’t pull that off now! Haha. Maybe? We love a good challenge so, who knows, you may see some inspirational outfits bloom from this idea.
Anyways! Make sure your outfits pull together a nice color palette once all the layers are on. And think about the colors that are in season and use those for guiding you on your color and outfit choices. This is where you get to WEAR your favorite seasons! We are obviously all for this idea.
Tip #5 for Layering Your Clothes Like a Pro: Always finish with your fave accessories.
Accessories for these cooler months can mean scarves, beanies, hats, etc. We have some of our go-to favorites you can check out HERE. When you can wear cute accessories that double up as layers to keep you warm, that’s definitely a win-win!
