Winter fashion is all about your layering game. No longer are the days where dressing for winter equals cocooning yourself in puffy gear, overwhelmed by knit accessories. Layering presents tons of opportunities to stay comfortable while keeping your style in check.
And While you’re stocking up on sweaters, jackets and basics for the cool-weather months ahead keep an eye out for those staple pieces that mix and match for a variety of looks that can be changed up, whatever the weather.
We’ve rounded up our top 10 layering pieces that’ll upgrade your look this season, and then some!
Oversized Denim Jacket: We’re loving this slightly slouchy, fresh update on a classic denim jacket. The longline yet lightweight layer is the perfect topper for chunky knits, figure-hugging skirt sets—well, almost anything, really, even when worn with jeans for a denim-on-denim look.
Bonus: features a removable faux fur collar for even more versatility!
Faux Fur Vest: This fashion-meets-function factor is here to elevate your look, and keep you warm at the same time. We’re having fun with all the faux fur details hitting up this season—pairing a burgundy puffer vest with a distressed denim button-up and adding some volume to a high-waist midi skirt with a hooded vest. Bonus: It’s reversible! Shaggy on one side, plush on the other.
Knit Cardigan: Cozy and chic, this silhouette streamlines your look without that bulky feeling. Instead of a jacket, enhance the bold motif of winter florals with a distressed long-length cardigan or glam it up with a faux fur collar. Bonus: Removable faux fur collar for even more versatility!
Faux Leather Jacket: Edgy yet sophisticated, add instant impact to your look by simply topping it off with a statement moto jacket or the ever-popular bomber jacket.
Midi-Length Sweater Dress: Turn up the fierce factor with a figure-hugging bodycon that’s just as comfy as it is sleek. Opt for a higher neckline to balance out oversized layering options such as a cropped hoodie or moto jacket.
White Bomber Jacket: Break out your winter whites! The no-fail fashion staple will add an element of instant cool to any look. Rock subtle quilted moto detail, vintage inspired patches (or both!) for an of-the-moment retro feel.
Anorak Jacket: We love the utility vibe of an anorak jacket. Less bulky than traditional jackets, this laid-back layer adds a rugged feel and can be worn with just about anything underneath!
Long-Sleeve Hooded T-Shirt: The base layer you need in your wardrobe this season. Let the hood hang out of your jacket for a touch of effortless cool.
Mixed Media Jacket: Upgrade your jacket situation with this must-have trend—combines multiple materials and textures, making it versatile enough to be dressed up or down.
Plaid Button-Up: Get in check! Plaid is a go-to cold-weather print, perfect for the holiday season. Try layering under a solid yet sleek bomber jacket in a darker shade with polished jeans and cool kicks for a fresh combo.
