Winter Layering Essential: A Sleek Black Turtleneck
Trust us, a fitted black turtleneck will be your best friend through the bitterly cold season. You could stack a sweater and coat over it (like Kim Kardashian), layer it under a cute dress, or try it solo and tucked into a maxiskirt for a formal occasion. You might want to buy a few, now that we think of it.
Winter Layering Essential: A Printed Button-Down Shirt
Mindy Kaling is the poster girl for how to wear and layer a printed button-down shirt both on- and off-screen. Take a cue from one of our new favorite celebrity style icons and add a crisp collar to amp up a neutral crewneck sweater or provide an unexpected backdrop to a simple shift dress. Or go nuts and mix prints with a graphic sweatshirt, sweater, or cardigan. Prints are the new black!
Winter Layering Essential: A Flirty Fit-and-Flare Skirt
Considering England's rainy, bone-chilling weather, no wonder the British are such experts at layering. Maybe that's why Alexa Chung has this easy essential in her closet: a pretty, flirty flared skirt. She opted for a black turtleneck (see?!) and rocker-style moto jacket, but the outfit options are endless: Pair it with a chunky cropped sweater, delicate knit cardigan set, boxy blazer, tailored blouse, or even (yup, we're going there) a crop top.
Winter Layering Essential: A Worn-In Denim Jacket
Yes, you can wear a lived in, vintage-wash denim jacket starting now through summer—just wear it now under your winter coat for an inside-layer. Throw a boxy topper over a printed dress, like master of layering Miranda Kerr, or pair it with slouchy pants for an effortless, downtown vibe. A denim jacket is the indoor layer to keep you warm be it at the office or the bar, seriously. Then come spring—when it's even more chicly rumpled and lived in—it seamlessly transitions into your outside jacket.
