Keep reading for our top tips on creating layered looks to wow this winter.
A block colour polo neck goes underneath practically anything. In fact, according to Marie Claire, even style icon Victoria Beckham is obsessed with them. Try a plain cotton roll neck underneath a sweater to add an extra element to your look, as well as helping to keep the cold in. A roll neck can be worn in so many different ways and is an essential for the winter months. Wear one under dungarees with an over sized chunky knit cardigan or try it under a pinafore dress and a faux fur lined leather jacket for another adorable layered look.
Outsmart the cold weather by restyling your favourite summer looks with just a few tweaks. Dresses, skirts and even play suits can be easily worn in winter if you layer up correctly, meaning you don’t have to stock up on bulky pieces if it isn’t your thing. A shirt dress like the styles available at Superdry is perfect for layering with tights and chunky trainers for a totally on-trend winter look. Add a fleece lined hoodie and an extra layer, such as your favourite shearling denim jacket, to make sure you stay warm as well as fashionable – you’ll be ready to face the cold in no time.
Knitted jumpers are key when it comes to winter fashion.Whether you go for the traditional cream cable knit or something bolder, you’d be surprised how many looks you can get out of one jumper. Start with a comfortable but fitted white shirt and layer a knitted jumper of your choice on top, leaving the shirt collar to peek out over the top. Mom jeans put an edgy spin on this classic look, especially when paired up with some slip on trainers and a puffer jacket. Try out a more formal look by swapping the bottoms for some skinny jeans and over the knee boots.
Some trends pop up year after year simply because they’re that good. Plaid flannel shirts in yellow, red or orange are amazing during the colder months because they add extra warmth in a variety of ways. Not sure just how cold it’ll be outside? Tie a shirt around your waist just in case you need to layer up in a hurry.
Try pulling out the biker boots and skinny jeans with a tucked in, plaid shirt under a leather jacket. Don’t forget the accessories either – a beanie would add a bit of grungy chic to the entire look, otherwise stick to a plain scarf and gloves combo.

Another piece that can be easily dressed up and down is a cardigan.You could style this by themselves if it’s mild outside, but they can fit underneath the majority of long coats. Try a classic ribbed cardigan and along-sleeved tee layered underneath a duster coat. Whether you go for a skirt or leggings is up to you, but why not try out faux leather on your bottom half? Ankle boots or trainers both look amazing with this layered look, so grab whatever you think is comfiest. Cardigans can be styled over your favourite summer pieces to make them more weather appropriate, including pinafore dresses and denim skirts.
