A Beginner's Guide to Winter Layering

In the harsh winter months, staying fashionable may be tricky to manage. Many people spend hours putting together an amazing look just to cover it up with a big coat the moment they go outdoors. Layering can be cumbersome, unstylish, and inconvenient if you don't know what to do, but if done right, can be a fashion statement exuding warmth on those frigid months. 

    Winter layering is all about finding the right balance, and the secret is to focus on quality rather than quantity. If you're looking for new ways to add layers to your winter wardrobe, look no further. Here's a rundown of winter layering tactics to help you wrap up in style this season:

    1. The Best Base Layers

    The key to an effective base layer is wicking perspiration away from your body. The more you sweat, the colder you might become if it is not wicked away. Avoid wearing cotton as it tends to trap moisture and leave you cold instead of keeping you warm. You can go for natural and synthetic fibers like polyester or wool that fits you snugly and comfortably.

    2. The Best Mid Layers

    Most people believe that in order to be warm, you must wear a large coat. The secret, though, is to layer for breathability. The mid-primary layer's function is to keep heat in.

    For those on a tight budget, fleece is the perfect material for mid-layering. Although it does not operate properly when wet. You can also try wool because they hold heat in the best. 

    Use wool or fleece for layering pants as well, packing bigger weights for really cold days and lower weights for days that are close to freezing. Wool keeps you warm while being lightweight and is  ideal for a stroll on a warm winter day.

    3. The Best Outer Layers

    Having the proper outer shell protects you from severe elements such as rain, wind, and snow. This top layer jacket protects the wind from robbing you of heat when worn with the right layers beneath.

    Winter upper layer materials should be waterproof and breathable. While nylon or polyester are both good choices, we've been using GoreTex for years. It is long-lasting, waterproof, and stays breathable even under your layers of clothing.

    Remember that for this layering strategy is to function, all of your layers must be permeable. Don't be misled into believing that bigger is better. You can also use the following layering tips:

    • High-Neck Under Sweater: This is the most fundamental introduction to the realm of layering. Under a v-neck sweater, wear a high-neck fitting shirt, long-sleeved or turtleneck. It looks preppy and chic if you get the colors and layering right.   This will undoubtedly keep you warm and is really adaptable in terms of color, texture, and design.

    • Repurposing Non-Winter Garments: You can try repurposing your non-winter garments by putting high-necked tops underneath. You can also wear a chic oversized shirt on top of a long-sleeved shirt if you want a more casual yet stylish layering.

    • Blanket Dressing: you can wear blanket wraps and oversized scarves that can also work as a comfortable throw.

    • Hosiery: this is using stockings, socks, and tights collectively. You can repurpose your favorite summer dress and make it appropriate for chilly weather by wearing tights underneath as the season gets colder. 

    During winter, you need to protect parts of your body that tend to lose heat rapidly. These are your hands, feet, head, and even your neck and upper chest. So this means that bare neck tops should be avoided during winter. Head-to-toe layering’s function should be to keep you warm, after all.

    As you dress to impress, bear in mind that you have to layer your clothes right to avoid overheating. If you are already wearing a puffer or bomber jacket, make sure that the layers underneath are not too thick enough to overheat. You can wear tank tops, sleeveless thermals, or polo shirts underneath to stay comfortably warm.

    The act of venturing outside in the cold does not have to be a dreary and unappealing experience. Layering may be a fashion statement that demonstrates your sense of style and uniqueness.
