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.
ComfortableIn 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.This 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.The 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).Jacket: 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)
CasualThis 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.The 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!Pairing a simple turtleneck under a crewneck sweater is a great way to layer without looking “bulky” and still keeps you warm!Jacket: 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?
