Staying warm is the overall most important priority when venturing outside into the cold. An easy way to get cozy is by picking up a quality, thick coat and calling it a day.

This “odds” rule also refers to color—always combine three or five similar hues (darks or lights) so that the outfit doesn’t appear boxy. Three layers offer a more functional protective barrier against the winter elements.

Complement Materials

Complementing is the name of the game when it comes to layering, both in color and material. Oftentimes, individuals create a fantastic outfit and throw on any old coat that clashes with the overall style.

The biggest fabric faux pas is matching synthetic athletic materials with wool or cotton. This combination is a distraction and detracts from one’s wardrobe. Some lab-made fabrics, like highly durable fleece, arean acceptable complement to cashmere, wool, and other heavier materials.

Tight to Loose

Another good rule of thumb for proper layering is going from a tight fit to a loose fit. That means the first layer, whether a sweater or shirt, is the most body-conforming clothing item compared to the others.
