Wear a Button Down Under A Sweater

Add some oomph back to a boring old sweater by wearing it over a classic white button down shirt. Throw a moto jacket over it, like 9 to 5 Chic’s Anh Sundstrom, to add some edge to your cozy, preppy look.

Balance Fluffy With Skinny

The biggest challenge regarding layering is wearing an outfit that doesn’t make you look wide. The best way to balance fluffy and furry knits and coats is to wear slim-fit bottoms, like Sea of Shoes’s leather skinnies.

Wear A Jacket Over A Jacket

There’s no need in deciding between two of your favorite jackets. Instead, layer them on top of one another, like Sincerely Jules’s plaid over denim. It’s also the perfect opportunity to continue wearing your lighter jackets from spring, summer, and fall.
