20 Style Tips On How To Layer Your Clothes To Stay Warm This Winter

For me, dressing for cold winter days is all about figuring out how to stay warm AND look cute at the same time. When all you want to do is wrap yourself in sweatshirts and blankets, it can be hard to figure out an outfit that is still stylish and flattering. That’s exactly where layering comes in.

Layering is all about pairing different kinds of clothes together to create one cozy, bundled up, thrown-together look that seems effortless yet very fashionable. In theory, it’s pretty simple: add a cardigan over a tank top, or pair a dress with a blazer. But if you want to take things to the next level, you should check out the below tips and tricks. Here are 20 style tips on how to layer your clothes, with outfit ideas included.
