Ace The Layering Trend This Season With These Vogue-Worthy Outfits

Alt text

With the weather only getting colder, the layering-up trend has made its way onto our radar right on time…  

They say less is more but, with the layering trend warming up for its huge entrance into 2019, more is now officially more. Say no to the mini dress, long coat and bare, shivering legs combination this winter. Be gone with your thin, itchy tights that you dread wearing in the mornings. Say goodbye to crop tops and tiny blouses that have to hide away under your cosy jumper. Because this winter, the layering trend has got some very handy tricks to make sure every bit of your outfit gets to be seen, whilst keeping you nice and warm in the icy chills. We’re talking maxi dresses worn with your favourite cargo trousers, we’re talking shirts with polo necks underneath, and if you ever thought that wearing two coats was a no no, then you’ve never been so wrong! Here are our top tips to ace the layering trend this season, that will make sure you’ll never have to worry about stepping out into the cold again.

The Polo and Shirt Layers: Step 1. The Polo

To get your base layer ready, invest in a polo - it's sure to become your new wardrobe essential this winter. We suggest going for neutral tones that will go with anything you put over it, like this sleek camel top from Whistles. However, if you want a burst of colour or something patterned that will give your outfit a real punch, go for it! This layer creates a perfect canvas on which you can build on top of, whether it’s a shirt, a dress, or you can just simply wear it on its own. The polo neck is your oyster!

The Polo and Shirt Layers: Step 2: The Shirt 

Now you have your neutral base, you have some leeway to go a little more out there with your shirt. We have picked this beautiful velvet number from Yoox, that will elevate the polo you are wearing underneath. Brown and neutral tones are very on trend this season, along with velvet, so the combination is sure to make your outfit runway-ready. Throw an earthy-toned coat on and loosely tuck it into some wide-leg trousers to complete the look.

The Jacket and Coat Double Up: Step 1. The Jacket

First, you need your jacket that will sit under the coat. This cropped jersey jacket from Topshop in a soft pink and grey checked print is perfect to get the foundation of your layers, and the cute print will peep out from underneath whatever coat you wear over, so it won’t go unmissed. Keep it simple by wearing a plain tee to draw attention to the pattern, and if you’re stuck for bottoms, splash out on the coordinated trousers. Or, go for a neutral, wide leg trouser with a chunky belt to keep the outfit more minimal.

The Jacket and Coat Double Up: Step 2. The Coat

It’s Vogue official: pink is no longer restricted to summer and spring and is the new it-colour for our winterwear. And this pink teddy coat from & Other Stories will bring your whole outfit together and give your ensemble a nice splash of seasonal colour. When this coat is complemented with the Topshop jacket, it will make both the pieces pop as much as each other and will keep you oh-so cosy too. You can play around with other shades when layering with this number; if you have darker or lighter jackets in pink or other neutral tones, wear them under this teddy coat to give your outfit a sweet blush.

The Dress and Trouser Combo: Step 1. The Dress 

The dress and trouser combination is a slightly more daring look, but if you want to stand out from the crowd and inspire some fellow fashion enthusiasts around you, then this is definitely a look for you. We are opting for the very popular bohemian and military-fusion style, so when choosing your dress, we recommend going for something like a midi/maxi shirt dress, like this number from Mango. Layer up underneath for some extra warmth (bring in the new polo!) and get ready for the next exciting bit, which turns this summer style into a winter wonder…

The Dress and Trouser Combo: Step 2. The Trouser 

If you are lacking a cargo trouser staple in your wardrobe, then you won’t regret investing in a pair, trust us! They are the must-have trouser to prep you for the 2019 utility trend, and when combined with this buttoned up dress, you will look stylish as hell. We suggest undoing the buttons of the dress all the way to the hips, so it almost works as a coat. Then, put on some cargo trousers, like this khaki pair from Urban Outfitters, with either some chunky black army boots, or some smarter heeled ankle boots. Ta dah! You’ll be channelling your inner Vogue, all without the big price tags!
