It’s winter, ladies! Though we have got used to the cold weather, choosing the right outfit is quite a task. Staying warm and looking stylish at the same time can be difficult. This season, we turn to celebrities for some inspiration.
Layering seems to be the hottest trend amongst the celebs. We, too, feel that layering is the perfect way to balance out the winter look. It keeps you warm while making you look classy and chic. Layering is all about mixing and matching all your separates. Now that doesn’t mean you have to overload yourself and look all dowdy.
Tips on How to Layer in Winter
- This season, we are noticing simple yet elegant outfits amongst our favorite celebrities. With a little effort, you can look like a million bucks. There are clean lines with fewer prints on the outfits. Though printed accessories are still in vogue!
- The hot pieces for this winter are over-the-knee boots, double-breasted jackets, sneakers and turtlenecks.
- Pair differently textured fabrics with one another, and combine deep navy or black with pastels or bright hues.
- We also saw fewer scarves being used this season. According to our trend analysis, broad scarves are totally out (Refer to my point #7).
- Turtlenecks are making a comeback as well, so you can layer a plain turtleneck top with a long coat.
- Button-less jackets are being seen more as well. You can sport a plain or graphic tee shirt with ease topped by a button-less jacket.
We love the way Kendall has layered her outfit making each layer visible. The tight turtleneck is used as the inner layer. You too can style turtlenecks this way by keeping it simple. You can wear your hoodie and jacket together and voila! Achieve an off-duty model look by combining basic essentials from your wardrobe.
