Layering is the wearing of light weight garments one on top of the other to create a fashionable ensemble to provide warmth with out too much bulkiness or heaviness.
Boy has it been cold, although the winter sun is perfect to stay warm during the day. Layering is key without feeling too much bulk. Choosing light layers with heavier fabrics on top. Layering is the perfect way to stay warm this winter. It has been stated that the past few weeks have been the coldest here in Sydney for the past 17 years (that is my youngest daughter's lifetime).

Layering can be a challenge in winter, especially if the layers are not layered proportionally.
It is important to keep the layering in fits to your body starting off with a fitted singlet, cami or t-shirt. Keep the first few layers snug to your body.
Then flow through to thicker and less fitted layers. Do not be afraid to double up with jackets and vests.
Play with textures and incorporate a mix of materials when styling your layered look. Using the same fabrics will look heavy and will tend to make you look more bulky.
Wear a vest open to keep the look from appearing too bulky
Add a sleeveless coat to add warmth without bulk
Add a poncho or blanket vest over the top
Scarves come is all shapes and sizes this season so wear them open like a shawl or folded over around the neck
Keep your layers thin with the outer layers a little thicker.
Ideal layering will include
- a fitted tank
- a long sleeve tee
- a shirt
- a vest or light weight jacket
- a coat to finish off
- do not for get to add a scarf to keep in the warmth of your body.
- choosing to keep the colouring tonal
- adding a pop of colour
