WHY UNDER-LAYERING IS SAVING MY BUTT THIS WINTER

I’M WEARING  >>  Skirt: Massimo Dutti  |  Blazer: & Other Stories  |  T-Shirt: Uniqlo |  Boots: ZARA  |  Bag: Gucci

Under-layering is my key to staying warm, yet still look presentable during the Winter. It took me a long time to realise this and it’s not because I am stupid, but because I really, REALLY hate having to wear tights, plus two tops underneath my blazer. It makes me feel bulky and like I can’t move properly BUT, it does make a massive difference in staying warm. I often get asked where do I get warm jackets for the Winter and the truth is, I suck at that. I don’t have many jackets that actually keep me warm because I never want to compromise style, it’s stupid of me I know, but man it’s just how my brain is wired, so instead of wearing a huge bulky and unappealing jacket, I am opting for under-layering as much as possible. Although I’ve got to confess that I wouldn’t wear this when it gets below 5 degrees and I has obviously wearing thermals, a scarf and gloves (not pictured).

Today however, we woke up to a an iced landscape and there was just no way I wasn’t gonna wear the biggest jacket I own. See, sometimes I do use my logic hahah.

    True. I struggle to wear my fave black skinny jeans during the winter months because without anything underneath my legs freeze in the -14’C weather we have right now… and squeezing a pair of long johns underneath makes it an even tighter squeeze.

  2. Hola Andy!
    De verdad estoy muriendo de frío!
    Soy Méxicana, vivía en CDMX y me mudé a Barcelona hace 5 meses y sufro demasiado el frío! El problema es que me la vivo llevando chamarras horribles para no tener frío… pero me siento la más horrible en cuanto a estilo. Creo que tomaré súper en cuenta lo de llevar thermals… la verdad me negaba pero creo que no hay otra opción!
    Me inspiras un montón!
