With fall in full effect and winter rapidly approaching, we like to rely on layers to keep our body temperature in check as we go from chilly outdoor weather to the often over-heated offices, stores, and homes in which we spend much of these seasons. Fortunately, layering doesn’t need to be bulky—in fact, it can be a chic way to mix color, pattern, and texture in a way that makes a wardrobe feel brand new! The key to smart layering is being mindful of balance—if your top has several layers and a scarf, stick to slim bottoms (and vice versa). Vests, scarves, sweaters, and jewelry all play big roles in the layering game. Take a cue from our favorite layered looks and give them a try this season.

Get the look:
Take a light blouse into cooler weather by layering a turtleneck underneath. Add a vest on top—a simple way to add texture and keep warm without being overly bundled. This is such a fun look for winter—especially with the focus on classic red, white, and black. Balance the look with a simple pair of black leggings or skinnies. (image)
