Layering Pieces to Stock Up On

If you are anything like the rest of us, there is a chance that you are cold quite often. So many of us need to layer up on clothing in order to beat the chill that never seems to leave the air. However, a lot of us also have another huge problem: we are worried that adding layers will make us look too bulky and too big.

So how can you work around this? You need to be smart about your layers and choose pieces that are warm but not bulky. Unsure where to start? Here are some ideas:

Shawls

A beautiful shawl is a great way to add layers without too much bulk. Shawls can be used in so many different ways, from something you put over your entire body, to more of a scarf, to something you use to cover your hair.

Cardigans

A great chunky cardigan is a fantastic place to start when you are layering on your body. Cardigans are cozy but aren’t restrictive like a thicker sweater will be. Because it is cut open in the front, you have some movement room AND you can wear something a little more flattering under it.

A Fun Scarf

Sometimes, a fun scarf is all you need to keep warm. Scarves keep your neck and chest warm, which is where many of us lose a lot of our body heat. Of course, you also don’t really have to worry about adding too much bulk when you have a scarf either, which is a relief.

Thick Socks

Nothing makes you feel more cozy than a great pair of thick socks. These are perfect to wear under shoes that might not be practical – or ones that are practical. Thick socks can prevent against some of the pain that sturdy shoes can cause and it is a great way to keep your entire body warm. Thick socks aren’t seen all that often, so you don’t have to worry about the pattern too much. Still, these are cute options that will look great sitting by the fire and feel great under those sample sale boots you got that were a half size too big.

Make sure, above all else, that you keep your head warm with a good hat. If your head isn’t covered, the rest of youis never going to get warm. Just make sure that you do check your hair when you pull it off.
