4 Multidimensional, Wind-Defying Layered Looks
A Rauschenberg collage and Mr. Rogers’s shirt-tie-cardigan combo both rely on the art of layering—proving the technique has applications as diverse as the winter is long. Since the goal of the layering game depends on where you live and what you love to do (for some it’s adding texture; for others, maintaining core body temperature), we’ve laid out four well-stacked purpose-driven looks.
Proof that layering isn’t all practicality, this silky deep-caramel coat adds dimension when slipped over turtleneck-to-toe black. It’s chic, it’s unexpected, and it won’t crush your puff sleeve.
Keep your core toasty during trail runs and speed walks with high-performance layers that look slick even after you peel off the Patagonia. The watch wins for sexiest accessory, but solid socks and a headband are the unsung heroes of outdoor activewear.
THE MATERIALS GIRL
Close out the end of the year strong in a cashmere uniform. Khaite knows its way around a set, and this soft, camel-colored duo is the star your other investments—solid wool coat, chic carryall, high-shine watch—will orbit all winter long.
From Chicago to Seoul, starting with fitted layers in heat-tech fabrics is a move that will keep pep in your step and circulation in your toes. Add a jumpsuit, a puffer, and a tote big enough for takeout and you’re ready to hit the streets.
