I might have mentioned it in a previous post but I hate winter with a passion. I'm really sensitive to the cold and as I get older, I have seen how the lack of sunlight can affect my mood and productivity. Here in Paris, it's dark when we get up and pitch black by 4:30 pm. I just want to hibernate until spring haha! But honestly, I should not even complain because in Northern Scandinavia the sun sets around 3 pm.
When you live in a cold country you quickly learn how to layer clothes. That's why I think it's important to invest in a quality coat that will last you for a very long time. Choose a color that can easily match all of your outfits. Black, navy blue, gray and beige will never go out of style. To really master the art of layering, you will have to size up. I'm a size medium and I always take a size extra large for coats. Once you have found the right one, you will be able to layer as many pieces as you want. Just remember, we are not trying to look like the Michelin man. Create subtle layers with t-shirts, button-down shirts, turtlenecks, oversized sweaters, cardigans, overshirts or even blazers.
Add the final touch to your layered look by simply tying a sweater around your shoulders. If you want to be even more practical, use it as a scarf. Just have fun with it, tie the sweater a little bit to the side or just let it hang effortlessly on your shoulders.
Some fashion trends can be very expensive and we can't always keep up. This one won't cost you a dime. Don't throw style out the window just because the temperatures dropped. Scroll down to see some of the coolest layered looks.
