Heading back to school brings with it a new schedule, new classes and, of course, new ways to wear your clothes. Whether you choose to pile it on for a “more is more” look or to just stay warm, the art of layering is something you must master before your first day back at school. Because the only thing worse than an 8 a.m. lecture is getting sick when going to an 8 a.m. lecture.
Get inspired with these ways to layer up and stay warm and stylish this winter.
Winter layering essential #1: A fur vest
No sleeves? No problem! A fur vest is an easy way to dress up your wardrobe (which is actually a very hard task during the winter). Throw it over a sweater or layer it on top of your coat to stay warm and glam when the temperature drops below freezing. (Photo via @tessaclairebear)
Winter layering essential #2: A maxi cardigan
During the winter days, there is no cozier solution to stay comfy and warm in a classroom than to wear a maxi cardigan. Use your long cardigan as an effective layering tool under your winter jacket and forget about the cold. (Photo via @anisanatasha)
Winter layering essential #3: A worn-in denim jacket
Yes, you can wear (or more specifically, continue to live in) a denim jacket starting now through summer—just wear it now under your winter coat for an inside-layer. (Photo via @reginamenninger)
Winter layering essential #4: A blanket scarf
If you are a person who is fully committed to your blanket and choose to not to leave your bed when it is cold outside, a blanket scarf is a life saver when you are forced to be seated in a freezing classroom. (Photo via @lauraabaxterr)
Winter layering essential #5: A vintage fur jacket
The thing that we love the most about vintage fur jackets is that they look too beautiful to be called just regular winter jackets. Take an advantage of that and wear your glamorous piece of clothing with any top you want (another huge benefit is that it goes with everything) and proudly wear it all the time.
