Layer up but make it fashion

How to layer up in winter

It’s getting colder by the day so its definitely time to get out those winter layers! Layering up for the winter is sensible but it can also be a great fashion statement. Here is how I layer my jackets to keep out the winter chill.

The double jacket

Layering two jackets sounds pretty simple. But there is few things i’d always consider: thickness, length and fabric. I’d generally go for a lightweight jacket underneath such as a leather jacket or blazer. The second layer is where you can add the bulk such as a fur jacket or puffer coat. In terms of length - If you’ve got a cropped coat, pair it with a cropped jacket. A longer blazer will look best with a long wool tailored coat.

Here I’ve gone for cropped leather and fur. I’ve kept the bottom layer plain in colour and the leather adds structure to the look. The second layer I’ve use a patterned colour fur jacket. Keeping the length the same these two jackets work well together. I’d always try keep one jacket plain in colour and the other with some print or colour. Although you can definitely be creative in how you style the double jacket!

The Gilet

Gilets’ aren’t always seen as fashionable but that depends on how you wear it. Here I have taken a fur gilet and layered it over a leather coat. It adds warmth to a thin jacket and also means you can see the snake print of the fabric. I think gilets’ look super cool over tailored jackets or if your just looking for warmth try putting a thin gilet underneath your coat for that extra layer.
