We’re in that part of the year when the weather is constantly changing and can switch from being so cold you’re wrapping yourself in woolies in the morning, to sunny and warm enough you think it might be time for a cheeky beach trip in the afternoon, and then back to being chilly again in the evening. The key to getting through the transeasonal weather is layering, and we’ve got a few options to help you stay warm and stylish.
Before the weather cools down too much, dusters and kimonos are a great way to add a light layer. You can wear them open like a coat, or try adding a belt over the top to change up the shape of your outfit.
Cardigans are a great options when it starts getting chillier, and there are styles out there to go with every kind of outfit. Wear them buttoned up or open, depending on how warm you want to be.
If you’re looking for something a little more casual, puffer vests are great for helping to keep your torso warm (and you can also find them in a jacket style if you want some coverage on your arms). If you’re somewhere that is cold but not wet, these will help you stay toasty.
What could be better than something that’s basically like wrapping yourself in a warm cozy blanket? Ponchos are great for snuggling up in, and perfect for everything from weekend brunch to a night out at the theatre.
If you’re wanting to add warm layers to a dressier look, the key is in the fabric – look for luxe soft knits, faux furs or something with a little bit of sparkle.
