Winter layering is so fun, believe me. I have created my personal building blocks of a solid, and stylish wardrobe to help me get through the cold winter. There are plenty of ways to layer any outfit to create an on-trend look, or a look that is simply comfy.

Below are my 5 Tips to a Perfectly Layered Outfit:

1. Start with a basic/solid top. In my case I grabbed my favorite solid-colored knit sweater.

2. Add another layer. I added a faux fur vest that I’ve had for years. It’s soft and it gives my outfit some depth.

3. Then add a coat. I suggest a solid color, like camel, and I know you have seen me rock this Uniqlo coat many times but I cannot help it: It’s my favorite winter coat this season!

4. Next, add a scarf but since I was wearing a turtle neck sweater I decided not to add a scarf.

5. Add accessories. You see me wearing my favorite rings, watch and cuff from my V Wear Collection.

Now it’s your turn! How do you like to layer?! Do you have any tips for me? Let me know by commenting below!

As always, I would love to hear from you!

PS: Don’t forget to come back Monday 1/11 for my BIG ANNOUNCEMENT!

Much love.

    Amazing layered look. I like your white faux fur vest! Booties are fantastic, too.

    okay you are definitely the queen of layering. It seems so simple but it actually takes some thinking and planning LOL I learned some things today thanks V. Something I like to layer is chunky socks over tights. For those fancier nights when you have to bare your legs in the freezing cold!

    Vanessa, you look gorgeous, as always! I adore this look and the layering you’ve done here; you always put together such wonderful layered looks, full of texture and color, I love it! You’ve given some wonderful tips on mastering the art of layering and I again have to tell you how much I love those boots! I hope you’re having a wonderful day so far and an amazing weekend ahead; sending much love and big hugs your way!

    Vanessa! Oh my gosh girl, I have missed your blog so much. I had to take a break from blogging for a while but I am back now and very thrilled to be on your page 😉 You look beautiful as always. I love the furry number underneath and you cannot beat the iconic heeled booties you are wearing.. This is also a very timely post for me. I am spending my first ACTUAL winter and I have been at a loss for how to “look good” during the dang thing! You are inspiring!

    Your faux fur gilet is great, I’m still looking for something like this with a belt! There aren’t many in the shops for some reason. Happy New Year, V! Hope your 2016 is filled with fun adventures

    Hey Vanessa!

    Ohh, thank you for this post! I’ve always admired the art of layering, people make it look so effortless, but my layers tend to come out messy & not cohesive. Also a lot of my wardrobe is black, so it ends up being 4 layers of all-black lol. I’ll keep these tips in mind, and I’ll try and add a few more color pieces & accessories to my wardrobe.

    You look lovely, I adored the denim! That wash is so vibrant, and I love that you cuffed them. Great details, as always!
