Style Winter Layering Looks
Layering is a great way to style warm winter looks. Of course, how long a layered look will keep you comfortable temperature wise depends on the weather. As a result, the clothing pieces and their material will differ. However, the overall concept of layering is to create several thin layers of still air. These layers, namely, increase the insulation of your outfit. Of course, when layering you also want to increase your style factor.
If I had the choice between weather like that and 20 below (-28.9C), low relative humidity with clear blues skies, I would chose the latter over the former any time. Sounds weird for everyone who hadn’t been in the latter weather – yet or who is a beach gal. I know, I know. However, when it’s frigid cold you can at least layer to feel comfortable, while you can’t get comfortable in the “Winter in Germany” weather.

Layering Outfit Broken Down
The following movie breaks winter layering down as an example of how to create stylish layers.
The easiest way is to build a layered look around a color like in the shown example burgundy.
Chic Winter Layering Looks with Cardigans and Jacket
Midi skirt, tights, over-the-knee boots, sweater at the office and an old diamond leopard print jacket as outerwear to stay comfortable. Can you believe I have this jacket since I was a teenager?
Winter Office Look Layering with Sheath
I have a knack for sheath dresses. They are easy to style up and down depending on whether I meet with students, the Dean or Director, or have a meeting or to give a talk. They are very, very versatile, nearly chameleons in the closet. Do I have to say also that they are a classic that never goes out of style? It’s just important to not look like a leftover statist from the Mad Man TV series. The same outfit idea just in another color gives you already a new office look – like one dress two ways. You can find more ideas how to wear your fav sheath in different ways in the guide at the link.
Every woman should own at least one sheath dress. #agelessstyle Click To Tweet
Casual Posh Layering
Casual Friday outfits don’t just mean jeans and T-shirt. Take a look of what weekend clothes you have in your closet and combine them for new looks for Friday at work. The outfit inspiration in the photos below brings you from office to drinks with the colleagues after work.
Style tip: When layering make sure to accentuate your waist to not look frumpy.
