Winter Layering Made Easy

We all know that layering is the key to warmth in the colder months. By adding leggings / stockings, vest, jacket, beanie, hat or scarf we can keep the chilly winds at bay.

I love the look of a shirt with a knit over the top or even a long lined waterfall cardigan with a vest. Who doesn’t love the look of warmth! Coming into the coldest part of the year – we need to make sure our wardrobe has the versatility and warmth we require. There is some key points to remember when layering in the colder months, you are concerned that you’re going to look huge from all the layering (I guarantee that you won’t – its a misconception, by using thin wool knits you will look great)

Our top tips are:

  1. Start with a basic thin lightweight top or shirt (striped long sleeve or chambray shirt are our favs)
  2. The next layer is to be a lightweight soft knit cardigan or sweater.
  3. Then add your  jacket or vest (puffer or faux fur)
  4. A scarf and a hat – will work well, maybe even some gloves if its really cold.
  5. Then add a hero accessories to tie it all in.

Would love to know your secrets to staying warm this winter. xx

Winter Style Needs

We had so much feedback from our last post “Being a Sports Mum”  and we also had plenty of readers asking what do we think are the key winter pieces needed to pull those looks together. Well we have done some research and come up with our own must have pieces needed for winter mornings of sport and casual weekend outings for all you mums out there. With the pieces listed you can start to create a capsule wardrobe, which is a great starting point for all of our wardrobes needs.  With this list you will definitely be able to go from Saturday Sports Mum to Saturday night with the girls or date night – just by changing up the shoes and adding some accessories.

Daily Styles Winter Luxe List:

  1. Leather or leather insert Ponte pants
  2. Anorak Jacket – ( we love a Khaki coloured one)
  3. Waterfall or chunky cardigan
  4. Striped long sleeve top
  5. Chambray Shirt

Faux Fur Vest Sophistication

We all admire the faux fur vest, it’s another piece the is “on trend” every Autumn & Winter. It’s the piece that will add instant sophistication to any outfit. And we love it! It will add a layer of warmth in these cold times. It can be teamed perfectly with a shirt / blouse, jeans and heels. It can also be worn more casually with a knit, jean boots or sneakers.
It’s most important to not wear anything too bulky underneath it or on your lower half, it’s best teamed with items that are slim fitting to balance out your outfit.
