it's thursday. and i'm doing a what i wore wednesday.
yes, the week has gone by a little faster than i thought.
in the winter, it gets pretty cold up north. and i'm pretty much always cold when everybody else feels pretty comfortable temperature-wise. so i've learned to layer. that's really what will add dimension and interest to an outfit while meeting my insulation needs.
after i read the e-book the no brainer wardrobe, i saw a layering expanded. some combinations i would have never thought looked good together, really worked!
so without further adieu, here's how i keep warm. without looking like i'm a polar bear in a ski jacket.
(this was paired with skinny jeans and ballet flats, just fyi)
there are 4 layers going on here:
::tank (underneath the gray t-shirt)
:: gray short sleeve tee
:: blue button down long sleeve shirt
:: hunter green cardigan (also long sleeve of course)
adding bright belt and necklace really keep things interesting and tied together.
(f-minus on m hair that day by the way)
now this is a really warm outfit. here are the layers:
::tank top underneath it all
:: brown cashmere turtle neck (it's pretty thin, but very warm. always go with cashmere if you want to stay warm)
:: orange cardigan (it gives shape buttoned up)
:: accessorize by layering necklaces and you are set to go!
p.s. one of my favorite color combos right now is mint and tangerine.
in this outfit, there are 3 layers:
::tank top (under the blue shirt)
:: blue shirt
:: navy blazer. this navy blazer is one of my favs. it's cottony, soft, and stretchy so it doesn't feel as stiff as a regular blazer.
:: creme scarf. because i rolled up my sleeves and wore a shorter skirt with no tights/pantyhose, i needed some extra warmth. if you make sure either your neck/torso region or your waist/legs region is pretty warm you can afford to pull a look like this off in the winter. just make sure either your top or bottom is well covered and warm.
how do you stay fashionably warm in winter?
