  As you probably already know, layering is a challenge for me. It’s hard to master the art of layering when you haven’t had many opportunities to practice it. However, one thing I have learned is that having solid go-to pieces makes all the difference. Gone are the days when I solely gravitated towards pieces that I thought were cute. Nowadays, I consider functionality to be equally as important.  That’s where this cozy camel coat you’ve seen me wear all season long comes in. It’s knit, warm, and completely eliminates the need for excessive layering on chilly days. And it also makes me look stylish .

 Of course, a good coat can only go so far. You also need to have some solid base layers if you want to feel comfortable in freezing temperatures. For instance, I’m wearing a flannel shirt as well as fleece-lined leggings underneath my jeans. Flannel pieces have become a favorite of mine during the cold winter months.  What I like about flannel pieces is that if temperatures are mild, sometimes you can get away with only wearing that one layer. I also like wearing flannel shirts as light jackets once temperatures start getting a bit warmer.

 Now, let’s talk about those layering pieces you can’t see in these photos. If you’ve never heard about fleece-lined leggings before, let me tell you that they’ve been a lifesaver for me this winter. As you can probably tell from these photos, they are not bulky at all, so you can still rock skinny jeans on those very cold days. If you don’t have any leggings laying around the house, a pair of thick tights also does the trick.

 Now that you’ve heard all about mine, what are some of your winter essentials?

  • Such a great winter look Helen! Fleece lined leggings can be life saving during very cold days and I really need a pair now that you mention it! My favourite winter essentials are oversized sweaters and lots of thin layers underneath to keep warm. Love your brown coat!

  • A little while ago I also decided to stop buying items just because they’re cute and actually think about how much use I can get out of each item. Love the flannel shirt and your coat 🙂

      Thanks Naghmeh! And thinking about how much use I’ll get out of an item has really helped out my budget, to tell you the truth!

  • What a nice outfit! I agree- layering is kinda tricky. But as a girl who has grown up with frigid winters, it’s all about leggings and tights (like you said) and cute coats that are also warm. Seriously loving your look here, and the photos!

    • helenveyna@gmail.com

      Thanks so much, Julia! I’m still learning how to dress for this weather. I’ve got my summer wardrobe down, but winter is such a challenge for me when it comes to getting dressed.

  • Even though you haven’t had a chance to practice layering a lot, you totally look like a pro with this outfit. I really love this camel coat that you found and it really complements your flannel shirt! Oh and yes, I love fleece lined tights! I didn’t think about wearing them under jeans though – so smart!!

      Thanks, Tina! And yeah, I wear fleece lined tights under jeans all the time! It’s a trick I learned while I was studying abroad in Spain during winter (it was so cold!).

      Yeah, it does tend to have a vintage vibe. Now that you mention it, I think I might experiment wearing it with a few of my vintage dresses.
