This winter I’m all about layering. Layering is stylish, keeps you warm and most importantly makes any outfit more interesting. So, from cozy faux fur vests to leather pants to camel coats, these are the items you need in your closet to take your layered looks to the next level. And before I forget: Yes, there is a difference between piling on clothes and layering. Well, if you want to layer in style that it is.

How do you like to layer?! I’m curious to know how you stay warm during the winter months.

1, 2, 3… pile on ladies, and let me know by commenting below!

Now back to this layered outfit. I actually wore this look to a meeting downtown. The meeting went extremely well, and I cannot wait to share with you what the meeting was all about, and what this will mean for What Would V Wear in the near future. Definitely stay tuned for more. On a different note: This is my last Chicago post as I’m heading to Paris this weekend. I can’t wait to share some exciting posts of Paris, as well as my hometown in Germany.

As always, thanks so much for reading & have a wonderful weekend!

PS: Don’t forget to come back Monday for an exciting style post, and make sure to follow me on Instagram and Snapchat (@WhatWouldVWear) for Paris updates!

Much love.
