These harsh upcoming winter months have everyone rushing to get inside… into giant sweatshirts and hibernating for days. Unfortunately, we cannot all have it as easy as bears do during the winter, and that’s where the stylish, trendy trick of layering comes in handy!
Our fashion stylists love a cozy cute layered look for any occasion… a fun night out or a day look for work. Hats, scarves, jackets, tights, cardigans, legwarmers or button-ups – all can be used for layering an outfit. STYLE Consultant Group personal shoppers also suggest playing with length such as a cropped jacket with a longer shirt under… or fun detail like fringe and zippers… or pops of color with tights and leggings to brighten our moods and our outfits while it’s cold out!
STYLE Consultant Group loves a good button up… that can be worn as your main piece or as an accessory with another garment. Our favorite layering look is a popped collar button-up paired with a cropped leather jacket. This JCREW combo is the perfect classic and edgy layered look. Our stylists say to wear this with leggings or skinny jeans, add some cute little booties, and you are ready for a fierce winter day. Check South Park Mall Charlotte
Next, fun nights out in Uptown are sparse in the winter. If you are anything like me, I am not a jacket person when it comes to glamming up and going out. I want everyone to see my outfit, and it cannot be seen under a bulky coat. Alternatives are endless; our STYLE Consultant personal shoppers say to cover up in this cropped moto jacket that is a statement piece and brings the whole look together.
Lastly, skirts can always be worn in the winter; the trick is finding the right tights. Fleece lined tights are the current go-to item. Our stylists suggest adding color for a pop, but keep it conservative for work. Amp up the look by layering leg warmers over tights and finish off the look with a pair of booties.
The winter winds will be changing eventually, but for now, keep to these trendy layering tips for a warm and comfy winter.
