With a chill in the air, it’s officially time to pile on warmer clothes. From chunky long sweaters to plush coats, breathing new life into cozy layers is essential for a wardrobe fall reset.
“I love the idea of a cozy sweater or turtleneck under a blazer,” says Caroline Belhumeur, Vince’s creative director. For a touch of femininity, she recommends pairing back the menswear-inspired with a pleated skirt.
When going for a textured look, Belhumeur says, “turtlenecks styled under sweaters or dresses feels fresh and modern. Layering also helps to extend the life of the garment from one season to the next.” Another option when styling versatile pieces like a silk slip dress? Add a cardigan or wrap-style coat to create a transitional outfit that goes from day to night. Pulling a long sweater over leggings is another option that’ll take you from the gym to just about anywhere.
For a trend-focused look, Moda Operandi buyer Lisa Ruffle says it’s all about plaid this season. “We saw it in many iterations from outerwear to accessories, but the plaid trouser was undoubtedly the hero piece of the season,” she says, adding that’s it’s a polished alternative to go-to denim. For a cozy effect, Ruffle says, “it looks best paired back with other cozy textures such as cashmere, chunky cable knits, and oversized shearling, worn with a great boot.” From classic to cool, shop 12 cozy layers ahead.
