OUTERWEAR TREND: DOUBLE LAYERING
Posted on September 10 2014
From denim jackets under parkas to bikers under macs, this season’s key outerwear trend is to take layering to the max by doubling up on coats. The best part is that you’re already halfway to cracking the trend, as you can combine your lighter summer jacket with an essential winter cover up.
To make it easier for you, our personal shopping assistant Alfie Marcus styles the top fall looks, showing how you can pull them off.
The denim jacket is a subtle yet effective touch underneath the intense orange parka. The parka is a nod to the ‘60s mod era, but the slim denim jacket and button up shirt adds a modern indie touch.
You could even have your winter outerwear sorted and not even know it. Combining a denim jacket and a bomber that you might already have in your wardrobe is a sure fire (and cost effective) way to battle the colder days.
Adding a lightweight bomber underneath a black denim jacket with a borg collar makes for an ultra-warm outfit that features a flash of color to break up the monochrome pallet. Finish it off with a mini beanie and black skinny joggers for a clean, sportswear inspired winter style.
For a sleek winter look try layering a slim fit black denim jacket under a gray wool pea coat. Team with a houndstooth oversize scarf and blue ultra-skinny pants to add an eye catching edge to a traditionally dapper attire.
Don’t be afraid to combine different trends to produce a totally unique look. This leather jacket underneath a wool blend mac is the perfect combination of classic and contemporary styling.
Double layering is the perfect opportunity to fuse together both formal and casual looks. The beanie, t-shirt and borg jacket ensures comfort and the drop shoulder mac in traditional houndstooth with burgundy dress pants offers a sartorial update.
