How to Layer Like a Fashion Pro this Winter

When it comes to fashion, the way you layer your outfit is what will make you stand out from the crowd. This winter, there’ll be a lot of layering going on as the temperature keeps dropping. Layering will not only keep you warm but it will also make you look stylish, so long as you know how to do it right.

The trick behind layering your clothes like a fashion pro is knowing what type of clothes to place one over the other. Here is a breakdown of how you can layer this winter. With this guide, there’s no way you can go wrong.

 

Start off with a piece  that’s fitting and lightweight

Layering starts from the inside out. One of the major fears of ladies when it comes to layering is looking bulky under all those clothes.  So if you see yourself looking bulky after layering, then the problem is from the first layer of clothing you have on.

To remedy this problem, start with a top that stays close to your body. That way whatever clothing you place over it will not make you look bulky. For example, your figure will show more if you wear sweater over a fitting blouse.

 

Let the first layer be a neutral colour then let the bright colours come afterwards

The colours you choose are very important. A rule of thumb is to make the first layer a neutral colour. When layering there’s a hierarchy of the colours you have to follow. White, beige and light blue are good colours to start with. The next layers can come in bright or dark colours like a navy blue jacket or a black sweater making your outfit more balanced.

For example a dark brown jacket over a beige blouse finished off with ruby-coloured earrings or necklace makes an amazing piece. The colours complement each other.

 

Mix in the different fabrics

Layering clothing items with the same kind of texture will make your outfit look heavy, monotonous and a bit overpowering.

Getting creative with the way you mix in different items will make your outfit more proportional. For example this winter you can wear a classic cotton collared shirt with a wooly cardigan over a pair of jeans. This way you have mixed cotton, wool and denim, thus creating a variety of textures on your outfit.

 

Vary the length of your outfits

Layering is all about maintaining the balance and keeping it stylish all through. The length of the clothes on each layer could change your whole look. But you need to keep in mind that in this case proportion is key.

How this works is to let the shorter items balance out the longer items. For example, a long coat over a short skirt will look flattering yet balanced, but a short jacket over a short skirt will make the outfit look out-of-place.

Following these layering tips will keep you looking stylish and toasty this winter.

Keeping Up With the Kids: Winter Fashions

Dressing a baby is about as much fun as putting an octopus into a string bag sometimes, and while babies are not fashionistas, your talking toddler is likely to have an opinion on their own wardrobe. Little girls like to demand sparkly dresses and glittery shoes, and little boys love looking dapper in little shirts and dungarees. However, when winter rolls around, sparkly dresses and shirts need replacing, as they don’t hold up against snow and strong winds.

Party On This Season

Winter warmers of chunky knit cardigans, thick fleecy coats and matching hat and scarf sets are always on the rails as the colder days draw in and keeping the kids warm is the priority. Fashion-conscious little girls need not worry, though! Sparkly dresses can still feature in the winter months when paired up with patterned tights and smart winter boots. With parties for Halloween, Bonfire Night fireworks, Christmas and New Year filling up your child’s social calendar, you’ll need sparkly colourful wellies and sturdy shoes to keep those toes warm and brighten up even the coldest evening.

 

Snow Is Falling

Santa is coming again with Christmas patterns, special Christmas jumpers and ice-blue knits and thick tights on the agenda. Pair a thick pair of woollen trousers with a reindeer Christmas jumper for a smart warm look on your little boy this Christmas. Those Christmas party dresses won’t wear themselves, and joining a gorgeous red dress with a glittery faux-fur wrap can jazz up any little girl’s Christmas day outfit. Wrap up warm with toasty fleece-lined gloves and bobble hats for girls and boys and watch their faces light up in the glow of the fireworks at New Year.

 

Drab to Fab!

Winter fashion doesn’t have to be drab, with bold colours decorating knitted clothes and thicker leggings and glitter twinkling through the thread. There’s nothing like splashing out on a special Christmas Day or New Year’s Eve outfit for your little one, and finding kids designer wear with great prices attached doesn’t have to be difficult.

 

Layer Up

Looking for kids designer wear doesn’t have to be taxing when there are so many options to keep them toasty this winter. Finding fluffy onesies or all-in-one winter outdoor wear for your newborn baby isn’t difficult, and making sure they’re wearing the right number of layers gets easier when the vests and baby sleepsuits they wear are brightly coloured and thermal to keep the heat in. Children can rock the snowflake look this winter with designer clothes that keep them warm. Splash out on fleece-lined pyjamas and slippers for cosy nights at home. Summer may bring out the sunshine colours, but winter brings in the cool greens and blues that scream cosy. Dress your kids for the season and keep them stylish and toasty at the same time this winter!
