Double Up: How to layer for winter

I’m always looking for new ways to layer for winter. One of my new favorite style hacks is to layer on two jackets. Here I’ve taken two coats, from two different seasons, and paired them for a casual winter style. Underneath, I’m wearing a cotton army green jacket, and I’ve topped it off with a wool army green coat. It’s a more stylish version of the three-seasons-in-one jackets popular with the outdoorsy types.

To complete the casual, laid back look, I’m wearing double-gore suede booties. They are super easy on a lazy day and weekend, because they just pull on, and there are no laces to get in the way. And I’ve completed the outfit with rolled-up boyfriend jeans.

Pink sneakers blogger style winter outfit ideaI’ve had my eye on getting a pair of pink sneakers since the spring. I saw a stylist pair a black suite jacket and baggy black pants with a pair of pale pink sneakers. I was hooked, but getting a pair proved to be difficult. No store I checked online had a pair, or at least not in the color I wanted (wanted this particular blush-pink shade), or they didn’t have them in my size, or they were out of my price range (I found a pair for $400!).

But things have improved since then. Now almost every online retailer sells pink sneakers. I was able to find the pair I’m wearing at Zara. What I particularly like about this pair, is that the sole is the same color as the upper of the sneaker. And this soft shade of pink is exactly what I was looking for. It’s neutral enough to pair with most of the colors in my closet, such as greys, blacks and any shade of jeans.

My favorite pink sneakers out there right now:

Zara (this is the exact style I’m wearing, and also on sale!); a very similar pair from Guess; an all-over pink ones like mine, but with a platform sole from ASOS and another pair from ASOS (but without a platform) here; a cute pom-pom version from Sam Edelman; some soft blush options from Steve Madden and Marc Fisher; and this really cool Adidas pair that is selling out everywhere.

how to style black leather leggings like a bloggerI’m a firm believer in the power of layering for winter. And since I’m already starting to get bored from my winter uniform of a mama-bear down parka, I decided to winterize my faux leather leggings. Leather leggings and a moto jacket are pieces I would wear during transitional weather. So to make them winter-proof, I added lots of layers – a cashmere sweater, a cashmere scarf, and a chunky hat.

Easy Does It: Casual Cold Weather Staples

I live in the Northeast, so I spend half the year in the cold. So I have a few cold weather staples that help me get though winter. A warm hat is essential. During the winter I really don’t care what my hair looks like. Keeping warm is more important to me, so I need my warm hat. I also have a selection of parkas that I’ve collected over the years: two down ones and one lined with fur (the one in this post). And mastering the art of layering is also essential.

Here I’ve layered a t-shirt, with a checkered shirt, with a cashmere sweater, with a parka, and topped it off with a chunky hat.
