It’s almost impossible to not associate January with the phrase ‘New Year, new you’ and the impulse to change up your wardrobe is hard to resist. Looking for new ways to style your cold weather pieces? We have five ways to layer for a fresh approach to winter dressing.
RE-PURPOSE YOUR CHRISTMAS DRESS
Who’d have thought your velvet slip dress could make the perfect partner with your slouchy hoodie? Revive the party essential with a jersey layer underneath, and keep it low key with trainers and a denim jacket or puffer in terms of outerwear.
TRY THE JEANS AND DRESS COMBO
If you’re not a fan of tights, but can’t face bare legs with the temperature drop (we don’t blame you!) then add an unconventional layer; a pair of jeans. Expose your denim by tucking in your dress around the front pocket area and wrap up in a longline coat for a definitive cool factor.
PUFFERS ADD A POP OF COLOUR
Puffers are pretty much everywhere this season and we can’t get enough! Add a playful edge to structured workwear with a hoodie and puffer pairing, choosing a bright shade for a pop of colour.
LAYER YOUR SLOGAN TEE
Slogan tees will never fall out of favour but with temperatures remaining low this month, wearing your tee as a standalone piece can become difficult. Layer up with a long sleeved top underneath, and add impact to your ensemble with a patterned skirt. Top tip: Gingham will be everywhere this summer, so invest now.
SHIRTS WITH ROLL NECKS FTW
Ah the workwear dilemma; to wear a shirt, or a roll neck… combining both not only makes for an unexpectedly perfect pairing, but also a brand new way of styling your structured essentials. Make like Pernille (below) and choose a sleek black high neck jumper, buttoning a striped shirt over the top. Keep the rest of the outfit tonal with shades of blue, adding flashes of patterns in your accessories.
