Two Layered Looks

While I love dressing for colder months, after a while it can get boring wearing the same thick sweaters everyday covered by a large coat. Bundling up can often leave me feeling less than put together. So instead of my usual bundled up outfits this winter I have been trying to layer in different ways that keep me warm and still look put together (without looking like the Michelin Man). Today I am sharing two of those looks that I have loved wearing this winter and are super easy to recreate.

ComfortableBarbour, Patagonia, Bean Boots_1676.jpgIn the winter I prefer lots of light layers rather than a few thick layers. The temperature is always changing and as you go in and out it is nice to be able to easily shed a layer or two. This outfit is perfect for doing just that. It is great for casual days and  even some outdoor exploring or evening walks.Barbour, Patagonia, Bean Boots_1684.JPGThis pullover isn’t quite as thick as the Patagonia fleece pullovers but it is still super soft and GREAT for layering! I paired it with a turtleneck t-shirt underneath for some added warmth.Barbour & Patagonia.jpgThe quilted Barbour jacket overtop is the perfect combination. The jacket is on the lighter side, but it is fleece lined giving it a little extra warmth! (Jacket runs small, size up).Barbour, Patagonia, Bean Boots_1683.jpgJacket: Barbour Cavalry Quilted Jacket (also available here, similar version here) | Pullover: Patagonia (also available here and here) | Turtleneck: JCrew | Jeans: Gap, old (similar here) | Knit Hat: JCrew | Bean Boots: LL Bean (6 Inch)

CasualBarbour, Turtleneck, Sweater and Boots_1688.jpgThis look is great for casual days at work or running around on the weekends. To dress it up a little you could swap out the dark jeans for a pair of black jeans or even a pair of leather leggings (my new favorite obsession). Throw on a scarf and a cute knit hat for extra warmth. These layers can easily be removed if it starts to warm up or you are too toasty indoors.Barbour & Sweater.jpgThe Barbour Beadnell also isn’t a traditionally heavy or warm coat but I love using it to layer. I love that it is waterproof and it has lined pockets to keep your hands warm!Barbour, Turtleneck, Sweater and Boots_1693.JPGPairing a simple turtleneck under a crewneck sweater is a great way to layer without looking “bulky” and still keeps you warm!Barbour, Turtleneck, Sweater and Boots_1692Jacket: Barbour Beadnell (also available here and quilted version here) | Turtleneck: LandsEnd | Sweater: JCrew, old (similar here) | Jeans: Gap, old (similar here) | Boots: Sam Edelman via Nordstrom

I love dressing for winter but it can be so hard to put together warm outfits that aren’t the same combination day after day. I will be sharing more winter looks this month along with a winter capsule wardrobe in January! What are some of your favorite ways to layer in the winter?
