The Perfect Layering

This week was icecold. Literally.

The temperatures in Munich went down to -20°C (which is equal to -4°F) and I had to work on a few days, so I couldn’t stay in the warmth of my home all day.

It may be pretty rough to keep yourself warm and stylish at the same time during the cold winter days because sometimes your well-planned outfit gets covered under your heavy coat and thick scarf, which is totally fine at some point, but I’m getting somehow bored of all this winter fashion. An outfit shouldn’t consist of only five (shown) pieces of whom one is so huge it covers nearly all the rest of it.

At least that’s my opinion.

And as you may don’t have a walk-in closet, your selection of outerwear pieces may be little like a few coats only which you might mix and match with your scarves, hats and gloves but the variations are limited and that’s the point I want to make here.

Yes, of course. You may open your coat or jacket and one can catch a glimpse of what was planned to be an allover-look but it’s not the same as a proper autumn-spring-summer look. It’s somehow different. And to be honest: when it turns really cold no one opens the zip of the coat unless you are a blogger at a photoshoot 😀

I know that I might set myself on fire with this one but as you can clearly see or read I hate winter fashion – it’s boring.

So I did a little self-experiment.

I wanted to create a layering outfit which used to be interesting but warm at the same time. The problem about layering too much is easy: when you go outside it’s totally fine to go with “too many” layers but when you are changing your location from outside to inside it might get too hot under all those layers and taking one piece off might destroy your hairdo or make-up so layering looks like this one should always be well thought out… 😉

I just wanted to know if I could possibly create a look which doesn’t look as heavy as a normal winter look but which would have the same effect as a look like this would. So I started to create a layering of in total 15 pieces:

kimono, pullover 1, pullover 2, thin sweater, blouse, tanktop, destroyed jeans, tights 1, tights 2, thin socks, sneakers, clutch, headband, bra, panties.

Sounds like a lot, but it doesn’t feel quite uncomfortable while wearing as the trick is to work with a lot of oversized pieces, so you wouldn’t feel like a brawny (in Germany we say “Presswurst” to this kind of feeling, feel free to google it, it might be funny 😀 ) all cramped up in your clothes.

So this is the outcome of my little experiment. I wore the exact same look on 6th of January in 2017 while strolling around with my boyfriend through winter wonderland Munich by -13°C (8.59°F)… 😉

Have you ever tried such a layering look?

Have a lovely week! ♥

Btw: don’t take this post too serious 😉

    Amazing look and layering my dear Katharina! I totally agree with you, a look doesn’t have to consist of 5 pieces and I love playing with layering too! What a fabulous green coat and head band! Totally matches with your perfect orange red hair! How beautiful it is! Perfect style and one more signature look from you, I am pretty sure now you can pull off any style you want! You are so talented!
    Thanks for sharing hun and have a great start to the week!
