Real: Red hat, plaid and gray. A lesson in winter layering

Although the winter is almost done (hopefully), I still believe some of you would benefit from imaginative layering in the cold days to come. I am no expert but I do get these great ideas on how to combine items in my closet as never before. This could possibly be due to my inability to shop these days, partly for not having any (and I mean ANY) room in my closet, and partly due to my lack of mula for these shopping expeditions I have became accustomed to. Let me get to the point before you scroll down to the pictures (if you have not done so already in which case you are not even reading this so I don't care what I write because you suck, kidding, kidding). 

One of my favorite things to do in the past year is wearing dresses and layering on top of them. You usually need a shirt which doesn't have a deep v-neck of some sort but something that is pretty closed on top. That is to cover the whole top of the dress and not have things sticking out and looking just plain awkward. Once you have the dress and the shirt, I would suggest to belt it as I have, just to add some shape to the outfit. Then you can continue with a denim, plaid shirt, sweater, fur vest and so on. Put on some hot booties, a matching coat, and voila! - you have a stylish, cozy, warm winter outfit. Do be careful not to be too colorful. Stick to neutrals or lots of black and denim with one accent color (as I have).

Well, this is all.
