AUTUMN WINTER FOUNDATIONAL LAYERS
We are in the middle of winter and collectively cry, “I’m cold!” as we shudder and shiver.
In my experience with Personal Styling clients, I find that many have neglected the foundational under layers of outfits.
I want to break these down for you and give you some easy options you can find online. These are perfect for every day winter wear and give you excellent foundations from which to build amazing winter layered looks.
Possibly THE most important of the lot. These fibres are going to be close to your skin, so an essential moisturising regime is needed to avoid any dry skin issues. I look for cotton and bamboo on fabric labels here. For more stretch and form fit, your elastane fabrics come into play.
Not just for the corporate market, we are seeing hosiery still playing a huge role in the style stakes. Some options by my favoured brands are featured here. Higher denier levels are less prone to snags. Knee highs are perfect for over the knee boots. Tip: wear tights under long skirts and dresses with boots for extra warmth.
Love them or not, leggings are a loungewear staple for comfort and ease of movement. Stretchy and designed to move, these basics are best worn underneath a longer top or oversized sweater. Two options here for you, one is lighter and one is a thicker, more of a pant style legging.
Your summer gym and sneaker socks aren’t going to cut it through Winter. Grab some warmer options. Thinner is best for form fitting boots (or go with hosiery here). Check out the least expensive option I’ve listed here, they are my go to boot socks!
Hop to it and bag yourself these foundational layers for ultimate warmth and comfort, it’s what we all deserve in these cool months.
