4 Tips To Dress With Layers and Stay Warm and Cute This Winter

Posted by Shopthemint Team on

It’s cold.

Maybe not everywhere, but a good chunk of the world shivers at the arrival of the winter season. As temperatures drop, layering clothes becomes a necessity, but layering can do more than keep you toasty. A fun layered outfit can make you feel cute, too. Besides, it’s not practical to throw on those thermal long johns in the dog days of summer. The winter season is your prime chance to experiment and dress with fun layers. Here, we’ve got some tips to help you feel cozy ‘n stylish all season long!

Start with a Base Layer

The base layer of your outfit is incredibly important. Choosing a material that will keep you warm and dry should be your first goal of dressing with layers. Certain materials tend to hold in more moisture (think sweat), leaving you frozen later on. Because of this, clothing containing polyester rather than cotton, for example, is best when layering your outfit. 

Keeping material in mind is especially important for layering items such as a turtleneck! A turtleneck top is made for layering. Once you try on this Mauve Pink Ribbed Sweater, you’ll find the possibilities for styling are endless! The fun design, gorgeous color, and dramatic sleeves give it enough flair to wear on its own!

Choose a Mid-Layer That Won’t Make You Overheat

Frostbite is no joke and protecting your most vulnerable areas is an ultimate “better safe than sorry” move! Wearing a hat such as an adorable beanie will help to keep your ears covered.
