How to master the art of layering for winter

How to master the art of layering for winter

The temperature is dropping, which can only mean one thing. It’s time to get layering. And while it may sound easy, there’s more to mastering the art of winter layering than just throwing on your favourite piece of knitwear or coat.

When it comes to staying snug during cold weather, it’s all about building a base of soft and breathable staples you can layer up in. From tops and tanks to camis and slips, our lightweight and thermoregulating essentials will form the foundation to your winter wardrobe.

What is layering?

Layering is a styling technique that keeps you warm during the cooler months. It’s an outfit built up by multiple garments, with each piece playing its part in the overall look and allowing you to stay warm.

Layering begins with a base layer and will have an outer layer. Depending on the weather and how much you feel the cold, there can be as many layers in between as you choose (although, you might want to go easy to avoid looking like the Marshmallow Man from Ghostbusters).

How to layer

How to layer

When it comes to layering, the key thing to remember is to layer light-to-heavy and thin-to-thick. By doing this, you’ll ensure the most breathable and lightweight layers are closest to your skin, while the more heavyweight and durable pieces protect you from the elements. 

The best part? You can peel away the layers as you warm up, especially when you come indoors. Opt for an insulating layer that will regulate your body temperature, and don’t forget the finishing touch of layering with accessories.

Why layer with Boody

Our everyday essentials are made from organically-grown bamboo, making them super-soft, lightweight and breathable. This makes our pieces ideal for slipping beneath your favourite knits and outerwear.

Another huge benefit of our bamboo fabric when it comes to layering is that it’s thermoregulating, meaning its unique properties will keep you warm during winter.
