Five Layering Essentials For Winter

Five Layering Essentials For Winter
Scroll

As the days grow shorter and the cold settles in, who can resist the luxurious feeling of a layered winter look? In this seasonal style guide, we cover the core basics, knitwear, coats and accessories that make layering winter outfits look effortless.

 

Start with base layers

Tees and tanks are the foundation of every layered outfit whether you’re throwing on a knit or styling a button up shirt. Look to slim-fitting basics that sit close to the body and fit under looser garments without adding too much volume. Our picks? Long sleeve rib tees in organic cotton, lightweight wool knits for a touch of texture, or try a roll neck tee to achieve a visibly layered (and warm) ensemble.

 

 

Embrace a knit cardigan

A knitted cardigan can make a simple outfit feel complete and create a layered look that’s refined and unfussy. This season, we’re wearing cardigans with relaxed fits, dropped shoulders and lots of texture. For a slouchy silhouette, look to our Ava Cardigan in a wool blend or cotton knit, worn with core basics and denim, or dressed up with silk. For a more fitted silhouette, style the Anala Knit Shirt like a cardigan over a tank.

Add an oversized vest

If there’s one thing in your wardrobe that can transform an outfit with minimum effort, it’s a knit vest. Knitted vests have remained popular for decades, and right now is the time to embrace an oversized silhouette with lots of texture. Style our Nari Knit Vest layered over a classic white or striped shirt, or throw it on over a slim-fitting long sleeve tee. And come spring, simply wear it as a top with bare arms.

 

 

Invest in a luxe winter coat

A beautiful coat is one of the best wardrobe investments you’ll make. You can face anything winter throws at you in a great coat — it will instantly elevate your outfit, keep you warm in the coldest weather, and can be worn year after year. Investing in a classic silhouette and a premium fabrication will mean your coat will stand the test of time. This season, Assembly Label introduces luxurious outerwear styles that tick all the boxes. We love the Double Breasted Alpaca Coat, made from fabric milled in Italy, and the heavy wool Manon Coat.

Accessorise!

Style your winter outfit from the ground up with a pair of leather boots. Heeled boots and thick tread sole styles are particularly popular this season, and the beauty is you can wear them every season. As for woolly winter accessories, more is more when it comes to layering. Style a richly textured knit with our Apolline Knit Scarf draped around your neck. To ensure the outfit looks and feels sumptuous, layer a knit and scarf in matching or similar tones.
