It is officially freezing outside. All motivation to look cute for class has disappeared under all those warm winter layers. More often than not, these layers go hand in hand with a couple shirts piled under a comfy and unfortunately not very flattering sweatshirt. Luckily, I am here to tell you that your layers do not need to be lazy and boring to stay warm!

In an effort to maintain somewhat of a stylish wardrobe and survive the bitter Wisconsin winter, I have become an expert at layering. The best go-to is a base layer of a T-shirt of any variety and a nice warm cardigan on top. Personally, I love to find a nice flowing long sleeve T-shirt for additional warmth. As for the cardigan, there are a ton of different styles out there, from big and fuzzy to light and soft.

When I spotted this Fashionista, I knew she was a pro at the layering game. I loved the burnt orange graphic T-shirt combined with the lightweight gray cardigan. Her faded denim jeans helped keep the look casual and fun for going to class, and I guarantee they kept her warmer than the leggings we tend to opt for on a chilly morning. Her chocolate colored boots pulled out the browns in her scarf, which really help tie the look together. Finally, bringing the layering into full effect, she layered a textured silver statement necklace with her printed scarf and to complete the look some stacked silver bracelets.
