With the cold weather extending its stay, it can sometimes be complicated to decide whether sporting a coat or just a light sweater will suffice for those walks to class. When you want to keep warm and look stylish, layer your outfit like this Fashionista. It becomes more manageable this way, by easily changing up your outfit when the weather decides to heat up or freeze over.

Another great thing about layering is that it helps your outfit look effortless. Coordinating cardigans or sweaters with your outfits makes it look more complete and definitely keeps those heads turning. Also, sticking to basics with some patterns will minimize that risk of mismatching. Coming up with outfits does not have to be so hard when you can just layer your look, especially when the cold weather calls for it. Lastly, add small details of accessories that will complete the look with a little pop.

What’s a better look to wear to class than to prep it up? This Fashionista layers a sweater over a plaid button-down which is the perfect way to keep to that classic school style. The great thing about this outfit was the hints of plaid that popped from under the white sweater with suede elbow patches. To pair with the sweater and plaid button up ensemble, she wore black high-waisted jeans and finishes it with lace-up light brown booties. Like this Fashionista, tucking in part of your top gives your outfit a refined and classy look.

One Simple Change: Just finished your classes for the day and heading out for brunch with a friend? Ditch the sweater and switch out those lace-up booties for a nice pair of flats for a casual look for dining. Finish off your look and accessorize with a statement necklace or a boyfriend watch.
