You might have found yourself wearing a jacket on a sweater or a fitting sweater on a long shirt, what you might have not known is that you are layering outfits. Layering is basically about wearing many clothes on top of each other. Today I’ll be giving you tips on how to layer outfits especially for the cold weather.

It may feel bulky and wrong, somebody will ask,`why should I wear too many clothes and look wacky? ‘Well darling, July is approaching, light sweaters are not going to keep you warm, trench coats will not be enough, It will be freezing.
Don’t be afraid to layer outfits,it’s artful, comfy, playful and simply stylish. First things first, layering essentials include:
-Sweater(cardigan,crew neck, sweater top).
-Scarfs.
-Marvins,knitted hats,watch caps.
-Long sleeved shirt.
-Coats(Trench,denim,woolen).
-Jackets.
How To
-Wear a fitting top, t-shirt or shirt.
-Add a light sweater.
-Add a coat.
-Polish up your look with a hat or scarf.
-You can also highlight your look with a touch of jewelry where necessary.
DOs:
-Go for neutral colors or simple shades that are easy to wear.
-Three layers are good to go.
-You can also layer up during hot weather conditions but with much lighter outfits, like a shirt on a vest.
-Try adding fun to your layers like maybe a denim shirt or coat or even a leather jacket.
-You can play with textures, wearing different materials all together.
-Try layering with jewelry accessories.
DON’Ts:
-Avoid over doing it, more than 4layers will be too much in fact 3, there will be too much heat to bear.
-I’m a fun of bold colors but in this case I advise you to do more of black, grey or white. Be careful, not to wear too many bright colors at once.
-Avoid wearing baggy layers all at once.Two fitting layers and one baggy layer will be a fine look.
