Layering is big business in the colder seasons. As soon as autumn creeps in, I’m mixing and matching pieces to get the optimal amount of comfort and warmth I can. Especially during the winter. From the months of November through March, England sees a particularly cold and icy stretch – meaning that I’m probably wearing a minimum of 3 – 4 layers daily. Although layering isn’t revolutionary – and definitely nothing new to winter outfits – there’s a new trend of layering that I’ve been playing with and really fallen for this year. A little twist on the classic t-shirt under a button-up staple.
If you’ve been reading MIMG for a while, you’ll know I’m a big fan of block colour basics – during the summer months I’m usually sporting a variety of block colour t-shirts, which come in handy during the colder months as a basic layer that won’t distract or be visible through the layers on top. My favourites usually reign from the monochromatic scale, and you’ll find me layering white/grey/black tee’s under shirts all day long.
Similar Plaid Shirts
Although it’s traditional fashion to layer a tee under a shirt, and then button that shirt all the way up to the top – I’ve really liked the look of leaving an additional one or two buttons undone to give a more relaxed vibe. I’ve liked this even more from classic fit shirts – those that aren’t fitted, so you give off a slouchy/Sunday morning vibe to your outfit.
This outfit, I paired my grey basics tee from Primark with a plaid shirt from Jack and Jones before layering this olive gilet from Jack Wills on top. I love how all the colours complement each other, and by having the shirt unbuttoned a few extra notches, you’re bringing a much more relaxed vibe into your winter outfits.
