You’re Talking ‘Bout: Layering
We wanted to some advice on Winter layering, so we asked our favorite people: fashion bloggers!
Here’s what they had to say:
Non-bulky layering can be tough, especially in the colder climates. Here are a few items I use to help minimize the bulk but add warmth:
- Opaque heavy tights – excellent underneath jeans, or worn with dresses, shorts or skirts
- Knee high socks – works wonders over jeans for your knee high boots, or adds to your look with a dress, shorts or skirt!
- Thin, long-sleeved tees – these are great under sweater! An extra, thin layer of warmth
- Comfy, wrap-around scarf or poncho!

I teach at a small university in New England. When I get dressed in the morning, I have to be prepared for brisk walks around campus followed by 75-minute stints in rooms of varying temperatures, while simultaneously looking pulled together. My solutions?
Thin layers. A thin long-sleeved t-shirt under my Rita, topped with a thin cashmere cardi keep me much more comfortable than just a heavy sweater would. Layers trap the warmth!
Tights. Under slacks, skirts, or dresses, tights keep my legs warmer as I sprint around campus.
Boots with socks. Over tights and under boots, I usually have on a pair of socks for added warmth. If my feet are warm, the rest of me manages to push away a chill.
