I’ve never been a fan of cold weather. That’s partly why I live in Los Angeles. But between going to school in Boston, and frequenting New York over the years, I had to come up with a bunch of cold weather layering tips to keep warm. Here are three easy steps for layering sweaters:
1. Start with a tight turtleneck
It’s always important to have your first layer be the tightest. I usually go for a ribbed knit that hugs my body. Mine is actually a crop top but. But a longer thin knit sweater works even better because you can tuck it into your bottoms.
2. Add cozy cashmere
Next I like to add a thin cashmere sweater. I often buy a size up because I like a roomier fit. Mine isn’t available but there are so many animal motifs available right now like bears, unicorns, tigers, and butterflies!
3. Layer with a chunky cardigan
The final step is to add a chunky cardigan. My mom and I actually got matching ones because we couldn’t get over this soft fabric (it’s 40% off now!). If the fuzzy look isn’t your thing, you can also do a chunky knit cardigan. For this step, the more oversize the better. You can also do a chunky knit if fuzzy isn’t your thing.
