As the weather gets colder, it’s a great time to start lay­er­ing your favourite pieces. It sounds sim­ple, yet it’s taken me years to work out which neck­lines and sleeve shapes work well to­gether. I find fol­low­ing these quick dos and don’ts makes pick­ing out a re­ally ~stylish~ out­fit a whole lot eas­ier, es­pe­cially when you’re just not sure whether it’s go­ing to be freez­ing or beach-wor­thy in an hour’s time!

LAY­ER­ING DOS

Pair a long-line coat with shorts or a mini dress. It elon­gates the legs and makes ev­ery en­sem­ble look that lit­tle bit more pol­ished. Rock a col­lared shirt un­der a straight or scoop-neck sweater. Make sure the col­lar is on dis­play and the cuffs are folded back. Rock a fit­ted tee un­der a strap­less top or spaghetti-strap slip. It will keep your mid­sec­tion warm while also look­ing su­per-chic. Wear a fit­ted turtle­neck un­der­neath a sweet col­lared shirt. Layer denim. But break it up with a dif­fer­ent ma­te­rial in be­tween. A cham­bray shirt, cot­ton tee and blue jeans make the per­fect combo.

AND DON’TS

Work­ing socks with Birken­stocks is a real no. Go for socks and brogues in­stead! Un­der­es­ti­mate the warmth of a sleeve­less jacket. Team it with a fit­ted long-sleeve top. Wear a knit over your pinafore or dun­ga­rees – un­der al­ways looks bet­ter and will keep you warmer.
