What: Take a high-low approach to layering by teaming smart tailoring with more comfortable separates. We love the idea of doing matchy matchy with different shades of blue for a contemporary take.
Top Layering tip: Size up on coat purchases to easily fit bulky layers.
What: We love a fur gilet layered over a chunky knit for a touch of glamour, whilst burgundy leather earns the look cool points.
Top layering tip: Stick to a consistent colour palette to avoid a fussy finish.
What: Let’s not forget the practical benefits to layering – sure, this skirt, blouse and (team SL’s favourite) leather jacket combo is a polished look, but having a chunky knit on hand for early mornings right now is worthwhile.
Top layering tip: Use layering as an excuse to change the feel of your outfit – without the knit, this is a simple work edit, but with its busy print, the look has a more casual, directional feel.
What: There’s nothing more annoying than constantly having to layer up then down, so add a poncho-style scarf to your wardrobe to avoid always having to strip off.
Top layering tip: Leather trousers are more insulating than most, so if you want to minimise layering on top, invest in some cool biker styles.
What: Sometimes chunky knits just don’t suffice on their own, so a thin, ribbed layering piece is a sensible purchase. Consider them the easy hack for wearing lighter coats come the depths of winter too.
Top layering tip: If you’re layering up your top half with basic separates, you can afford to get more creative on the bottom. Go for fun, busy, or trend-led prints and patterns to add a bit of life to your look.
