STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Love to Layer

This Chicago winter has been unlike any other winters we have had to deal with before. One minute it is beautiful outside and the next minute I am wishing I had my Hunter boots on to walk through the rain or snow. As a commuter, the crazy weather changes can be a bit of a nuisance because I cannot do quick outfit changes whenever I want; life isn’t a Britney Spears concert (too bad, though)!

The best fashionable solution to this dilemma is to love to layer. It is best to have items on for both climates so you can adjust to the weather accordingly. During the winter, having at least three layers under your jacket will keep you warm and leave you with options when that Chicago weather changes on you. These layers should essentially be a tank top, T-shirt and a sweater that will keep you toasty. It is also a great idea to wear a scarf because it can be taken off easily when you’re too hot.

This Fashionista was on her way to the Metra when I spotted her look with a ton of layers. She has a total of four layers on top: a tank top, a T-shirt, a warm sweater and a cargo jacket. Let’s also not forget her trendy circle scarf, an accessory perfect for layering. The weather drastically got warmer in the afternoon, so she conveniently took off her jacket. Since she had on enough layers underneath, she was neither too warm nor too cold. This is why layering is the perfect solution for this Chicago winter. This Fashionista is a layering expert!

STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Love to Layer

After being able to wear miniskirts and tiny tops for months, it may be a little hard to get back in the swing of things here up north. As fall is in full force and winter is right around the corner, we really need to start thinking about how to stay warm. My advice for staying trendy and warm this time of year? Layer! Layering is the perfect way to stay chic and oh-so-warm.  Although layering might sound like just a street style phase, it was also all over the runways — especially extra innovative layering ideas.

Layer creatively. Layering consists of piling on different pieces and mixing and matching different tanks, tees, sweaters, jackets, vests and scarves. Coming up with different solutions to layering can be fun and you can always discover a new combination. Some key pieces to add to your layering wardrobe this season are fur vests, puffer vests and chunky scarves.  You can get resourceful and take tons of old pieces in your closet and use them to stack up your clothes.

Not only is this trend cozy, but it's cute as well. Today’s Fashionista looks comfortable and fashionable on her walk to class. She is wearing a taupe sweater layered with a white shirt underneath. This color combo could not be any more perfect for this chilly fall day. To finish off her layering look she wears a chunky scarf, which is a great accessory choice for this trend.

Don’t fear the cold this fall, just layer up!
