12 Layering Tricks That Will Help You Outsmart the Weather This Year

If the thought of layering clothes gives you flashbacks to being told to dress for school with the requisite "don't forget your coat," we promise you that piling it on has never been better. It might still be August, but before you start working on your new-season shopping list, it pays to think about your autumn styling tactics. We've long associated experimental layering with the Olsen twins during the mid-noughties—hiding from the paparazzi in mountains of bohemian fabrics and hefty coatigans. And a decade later, playful layering is still on the style agenda, especially when navigating weatherproof dressing in winter.

To help, we've compiled 12 key layering tricks that will help you get more wear out of your existing favourites over the next six months and help you decide what you need to invest in. If there's one major tip we can give you? You'll find that one of the most versatile, long-wearing purchases is a black roll-neck, but a lightweight mac is also an item to stock up on now. See below for 12 outfit formulas to make you excited about adding those extra layers.

1. Loop an Extra Layer Around Your Waist

Style Notes:For in-between seasons when you might need an emergency layer, follow Lucy Williams's lead and loop a denim jacket around your waist.

2. Try the Preppy Shoulder Knot

Style Notes:Looping a colourful jumper around your shoulders is an old preppy styling trick, which you'll spot at any golf club, but it's also Alexa Chung's favourite way to layer up knitwear.

3. A Black Roll-Neck Will Work Under Almost Anything.

Style Notes:Tine Andrea showed that adding a black roll-neck underneath a printed top adds an unexpected edge. And layering isn't limited to knitwear, as she wore a black patent leather skirt over a pair of trousers for a modern and surprisingly slick look.

Key Buy:

The staple we're never getting rid of.

4. Pile On the Accessories Too.

Style Notes:We love how Anna Vitiello doesn't only layer up her outwear but piles on the chain necklaces too. It makes the outfit look more considered, rather than like you're doing a Joey Tribbiani and wearing all your clothes at once.

Perfect for spring's '80s revival.

5. Don't Be Scared of Mixing Textures.

Style Notes:Lizzie Hadfield shows that it pays to mix up textures, as she layered a black faux-fur coat over a grey tailored jacket. The lengths don't match, and the textures are totally different, but somehow it works.

6. When Layering Coats, Opt for a Lightweight Mac as the Top One.

Style Notes:During in-between seasons, reach for a lightweight mac instead of that wool overcoat to throw over your smart blazer and wear it loose around the shoulders. This way you'll be rain-ready and score extra points for the Vetements coat shrug.

Key Buy:

This coat looks seriously expensive.

7. Always Have a White Shirt on Hand.

Style Notes:Much like the humble black polo-neck, the white shirt is a must for any wardrobe. It's your much-needed layering essential, as it goes with everything. Whether that's under or over a dress, tucked into a pair of trousers, or just poking out of a jacket, there are so many ways to wear it.

15/25
Key Buy:

You'll get so much cost per wear out of this. 

8. Layer Fine Knits

Style Notes:When it's too cold for just one jumper, the solution is to double up on fine knitwear that will fit perfectly under your jackets and coats. If you get too warm, just take one off. Perfecto.

17/25
Key Buy:

When you get too warm, remember to tie this around your neck à la Alexa Chung.

9. Wear Wide-Leg Trousers Instead of Opaques

Style Notes:If you hate tights, then flared trousers under your A-line skirt and a white shirt are a surprisingly elegant go-to.

19/25
Key Buy:

Yep, flares are still okay to wear.

Style Notes:This ensemble was a key street style look last year, and it's set to remain for 2019. Simply wear your summer dress over jeans. If you can, leave the dress unbuttoned slightly at the front for a more relaxed feel.

21/25
Key Buy:

Need this dress.

11. Wear a Hoodie Under Blazers

Style Notes:A favourite Scandi layering trick is to wear a black hoodie under a perfectly tailored jacket, making suiting cosier and more relaxed, as proven by Celine Irgens Aagaard. Thanks to Vetements, the hoodie has had a reinvention as of late and is no longer left for skaters or the gym run.

23/25
Key Buy:

Invest in a cashmere hoodie to give it the polished effect. 

12. Use a Belt to Hold Separates Together.

24/25

Style Notes:Anna Vitiello shows that a belt cinched at the waist can be an excellent way to hold together separates and add definition to a complexly layered ensemble.

25/25
Key Buy:

A simple wear-with-anything option.
