Your ultimate guide to layering this winter part 1

- - No comments
Clever dressing in the cold months in South Africa means layering your clothes for a full-blown winter look. Here’s how to layer like a queen.
Fashion meets function when the cooler weather sets in. If the idea of layering leaves you cold, we've got tips and tricks for nailing the look.

RULE OF THUMB

The secret to pulling off the layered look is to start with the thinnest fabrics first and from there add on the bulky pieces. Leave no space un-layered; the smallest gap is an opportunity to show off another detail and keep you warm – whether that’s your thigh-high boots or a peeping collar.
BREAK UP YOUR PRINTS
If you’re a fashion risk-taker and love to dress in head-to-toe print, remember to break it up with one inner layer, like a hoodie, in a solid colour. Thigh-high boots work really well to break up print and have the added bonus of allowing you to wear a skirt in the middle of winter – win, win. Throw on a puffer jacket to complete the look.

WINTER-PROOF YOUR FAVE SUMMER DRESS
A great way to layer lightly is to pair your summer dresses with a chunky knit or long-sleeved tops. Finish off the look with a jacket or coat and a belt around your waist to give you shape.

THE MORE THE MERRIER
Torn between a suit or a dress? Wear both! Get experimental and pair your dress with a suit for something totally different. Accessorise the look with an oversized belt that hugs your waist and accentuates your curves.
