Basic Winter Layering You Should Try
The key to being stylish in winter is by mastering the layering techniques. During autumn and winter, the weather can be sunny, then freezing cold the next hour. By layering, you will be prepared for all weather changes during the day.
Here are some easy tips you can start with to stay warm and fashionable.
1- Sweater Vest
Layer a sweater vest over a shirt or a dress.
- Start by choosing which vest you want to wear.
- You can then decide on the shirt; it can be a basic white shirt or a matching colored silk shirt.
- Next, choose your bottoms: jeans, pants, skirt or shorts.
- Finally, add your long coat, and a blazer under your coat for colder days.
If you're wearing your vest with a dress, add black tights and long boots for a chic Parisian style.

Let your colored and printed turtleneck pop out under your V-neck sweater, dress, or blazer, for an outfit statement. Don't believe me? Just look at Prada's latest runways!

3- Bandeau Top
Layer a bandeau top over a shirt, a sweater, or a turtleneck is a fun layering style. It elevates your basic top and makes it more fashionable. Don't be afraid of going outside your comfort zone, that's how the best outfits are created.

4- Dress over Pants
Did you know you can still use your summer dresses in winter? Creative layering means wearing a dress over pants, and a turtleneck underneath. Not everyone can pull this look, but it's worth the try.

5- Monochromatic Outfit
Finally, safe layering is wearing multiple layers of the same color. First, choose your basic top, pants, and a coat all of the same color. If the weather is colder, you can easily add a vest or a jacket and some winter accessories; just stick to one color.
