The leaves are falling, the temperatures are dropping and even our coffee cups are changing their looks for the season. It’s time to transition to winter weather and layer your wardrobe with help from Kate, blogger at Wear in LA.
With winter just right around the corner, I’m shuffling my closet from skin-revealing, late summer and light fall outfits to warmer winter apparel. Sometimes it’s hard to shut away all my pretty lightweight pieces, so I spend days just playing with them figuring out layered outfits that will work all winter long. Here are some cute ideas that can help you create layered outfits for the cold.
Dresses + Tall Boots
The key to looking absolutely adorable and warm at the same time is sporting dresses made of thicker material, such as tweed or wool knits. Protect your legs from the nippy weather by wearing complementing (or even a contrasting if you’re bold like that) tights. One of my favorite ways to rock a dress in wintertime is to pair it with classic tall boots!

Structured Skirts + Tights
Another warm weather piece that you can layer all year round are skirts. Again the trick is picking garments made of thick material. Working with thicker materials like leather or wool allows you to easily create a structured outfit that compliments any body type! As with dresses, you can keep your legs warm with tights – I personally love working with sweater knits or classic black tights!

Puffer Vests + Button Ups
While these may not seem like the most flattering of layers, I have to tell you they are certainly one of the most cozy! Between pairing button ups and cable knit sweaters, prints and patterns of all colors, a puffer vest one of the easiest layers you can add on top for extra warmth and style. Since you can easily slip it on and off over your other layers, it’s a no brainer for unexpected snowstorms and gusty winds!
