Bomb Cyclone Be Damned! 4 Seriously Chic Ways To Layer This Winter

00-NEW-story-image (1)

There are cold, wintry days, and then there are days when you’re hit with a bomb cyclone, or the foot of snow and Arctic chill that ravaged the Northeast this week. In moments like these, fashion tends to take a back seat—no longer will your thin cashmere sweaters and slightly cropped jeans suffice! Or so you thought. In truth, there is an easy way to keep wearing your favorite pieces come snow, sleet, or even bomb cyclones: Instead of layering endlessly outward with puffer jackets and enormous knitwear, turn attention to your base layers. Simply swap your dainty intimates for thicker-grade items, and add a layer of wool, cashmere, or Uniqlo HeatTech between you and your favorite tee.

Here, four next-level layering tricks (and a quick visual guide!) to keep you cozy yet chic all season long.

Thigh-High Socks Make Wide-Leg Pants a Winter Win

01

Wooly wide-leg trousers can work in the harshest conditions. Just add thick, high socks underneath and top them off with a sustainably made (and extremely plush) cardigan.

Sticking Tights Under Pants Is Crucial

01

It might sound crazy, but layering hefty hosiery (like these Wolford leggings) beneath your pants can make all the difference. Just add socks and shearling boots, and you’re ready to take on any storm.

Elibeidy wears Calvin Klein 205W39NYC bra and briefs, Talbots turtleneck, Wolford leggings, NakedCashmere socks, The Cords & Co pants, Veronique Leroy cardigan, The Row boots, Maison Margiela coat, Mischa Lampert beret, Kara bag.

When in Doubt, Double Up on Knits

03

As the temperature dives into single digits, wearing two sweaters can be the only way to survive. Take a tip from model Elibeidy and tuck a thin cardigan against a thicker one for twice the warmth.

Elibeidy wears Calle Del Mar bra, Hesperios briefs, Falke tights, R13 pants, Creatures of Comfort sweater, Danner boots, Mango puffer, Burberry scarf, The Row backpack.

Yes, You Can Wear a Dress in Winter

04

Knit tights, a faux fur coat, and knee-high boots are the exact tools needed to transform a summery floral dress into a winter weather mainstay. Don’t forget the gloves!

Elibeidy wears Araks bra and underwear, CristaSeya turtleneck, Falke tights, Brock Collection dress, Fifi Chachnil cardigan, Frye boots, Altuzarra headband, House of Fluff coat, Guanti Giglio Fiorentino for Neiman Marcus gloves, Elizabeth and James bag.
