Warm and fashionable layers

It’s that time of year again, when the temperature drops and the chill sets in. Before the deep freeze takes over, make sure you have some layers on hand to stay warm in style. We’ve rounded up some luxe layers sure to take your mind off the snow to come.

Ruffled demi turtleneck

We can't wait to wear this pretty turtleneck under a blazer as the temperature drops (Anthropologie, $68). And before you dismiss this pick for being dowdy, just take a peek at the delicate ruffled detail at the shoulder. Not only will you be staying warm this winter, you'll look great doing it. Choose from either black or dark orange.

Floral-print sweater

Floral is here to stay throughout fall and winter, so why not brighten up your cool weather wardrobe with this stylish sweater featuring a smattering of feminine florals (GAP, $60). We love the relaxed fit and the fact that this piece can be worn with anything from denim to tailored trousers. Choose from a pink or gray print.

Warm and fashionable layers

Elbow patch pullover

Sometimes we just want to be comfortable, and if we can achieve that while maintaining an element of style, we're happy. That's why we fell for this navy crewneck pullover with cute elbow patches (Urban Outfitters, $54). Toss this on with a pair of jeans or slim-fitting cords and you have a timeless look that's flattering and functional.

Warm and fashionable layers

Funnelneck sweatshirt

Sweatshirts aren't known for their ability to be stylish, but this unique piece made of ultra-soft wool and cotton boucle terry really surprised us (J. Crew, $110). We were particularly drawn to the chic funnelneck silhouette, which can easily be paired with a fitted collared shirt and trousers for a more dressed up daytime look.

Warm and fashionable layers

Scarf tee

If you really want to stay warm in style this season, opt for one of these soft, comfy scarf tees (Banana Republic, $54.50). The two-in-one long sleeve shirt (It's a scarf and a T-shirt) makes for a cozy layer beneath a chunky knit cardigan or longer wrap sweater. Choose from several classic hues including navy, gray, red and black.


Warm and fashionable layers

Color block sweater

We have a soft spot for color block, a trend that hasn't managed to overstay its welcome. Case in point: this See by Chloe mohair blend sweater featuring an eye-catching color block pattern (, $295). This is the kind of sweater you wear on a cold dreary day to feel instantly better (and warmer). Pair with a gray body-con mini and ankle boots for cozy-chic fall style.
