7 Ways To Layer Up For Colder Weather & Still Look Stylish

Besma Whayeb ·

Getting your wardrobe ready for winter? Instead of going all-out and buying all new pieces, why not try integrating a few brilliant garments to layer up with instead?

From cosy knits to toasty jackets, take a look through our top picks for layering up as we move into the colder months... And of course, still look stylish! You may also want to check out our guide to AW20's hottest trends, and combine our recommendations.

Plus, everything you see here is worn by our Very Important Bloggers (or VIBs as we like to call them), whose wardrobes you can shop from as well!


1. Kitsch Cardigans


One of the easiest pieces to add into your ex-summer wardrobe is a colourful cardigan. Throw it over a strap top, t-shirt, whatever, it looks great and will keep you from getting chilly while still keeping you on-trend this season. Here, Emily of Style Lobster wears a light purple cardigan that we love!

2. Quilted Jackets


Another of this season's must-haves is a quilted jacket. Paris Kinnear looks great in hers - perfect for throwing on after the gym, or simply popping to the corner shop... If you've tried raiding your family's closets for one already, why not get a second-hand one on ebloggers?

3. Shackets


Yes, that's right - a shacket. The shirt-jacket. Who came up the acronym? Who knows. All we know is that we're living for the look, and Sophie Milner shows us how to do it in a jacket that's playfully too large. Why not get out of your comfort zone and try styling out different sizes too?

4. Sweater Vests


If you want something in-between a jumper and a sleeveless top, what do you go for? A sweater vest of course! A secret gem when it comes to layering, the sweater vest is back in style and looks great thrown over a shirt, as Grace Surguy shows us here, or even by itself with a pair of wide leg trousers.

5. Oversized Jumpers


If layering really isn't your thing, why not go for some oversized knitwear instead? We love Liana Tambini's style inspiration, with a big cosy jumper on top and little else underneath. Sexy and cosy!

6. Blazers


If you're into blazers, the chances are you've been wearing one all summer already. Luckily for you, they're also on-trend for autumn, winter, and well, all-year-round! Shelby Tribble looks great in hers, with baby bump and all!

7. Leather Jacket


And finally, we end on another classic piece that belongs in everyone's wardrobes: the leather jacket. There's so many styles to choose from: vegan leather, real leather, shearling, fringing... Here Rosa Crespo steps out in a mid-length leather jacket with shearling detailing, and it looks so good.
