A Love Letter To Luxe Layers

fashion blog how to layer in winter and still look chicSo here's the thing, I get cold.  Really cold and I mean really cold.  One thing's for sure, I'm not alone in this.  Despite just how ridiculously finger-numbingly, teeth-chatteringly cold I can get, for years I'd insist on wearing what I wanted, when I wanted because, y'know, fashion.  Now?  Different story.  With outerwear becoming the new focal point of styling as soon as the temperature drops, there's no reason to turn blue while out on a morning walk.  Fab.  With a pretty hefty 'saved' folder on Instagram and a lot of general browsing for inspiration, this winter I've taken my love for luxe layers to a whole new level.  Chunky knitted accessories and textured jackets have been my go-tos lately.  Once worn separately, now layered, layered and layered some more.  Oh, and never forgetting to throw in flashes of metallic accessories and popping highlight on top.  How about you?

This sheepskin jacket was a bit of an indulgence last year, though thankfully it's proven to be one hell of an investment piece!  It's pretty much been a continuous daily decision: sheepskin or teddybear coat?  I still haven't come to a decision - both styles are SO warm and cosy.  Yes to layers that keep you warm and still throw some style points your way.  Speaking of which, a couple of ways I've been keeping looks cohesive lately, includes opting for neutral chunky knits (even better if they match) and keeping things skinny on bottom. I picked up these khaki skinny jeans while in Germany last week, along with the dark grey version.  Never have I loved a holiday-purchase more than I do right now.  I refuse to ever believe skinny jeans are in the past, when they balance out heavily layered looks so well.  Also not hating how they let you wear heeled ankle boots without crumpling over the tops when you walk.  Know what I mean?!

Okay, so back to my mention of flashes of metallic accessories.  More specifically, I'm talking gold, rose gold and copper.  Swoon.  I love how luxurious these tones can look against heavily layered outfits - and they stand out all the more for it.  With this in mind, accessories such as this watch and matching bangle go a long way in throwing some sparkle to a heavily neutral outfit.

This pebble choker and horn necklace (both by Isonia Jewellery) have also been a go-to duo of mine lately because of this very same reason.  A cosy countryside look instantly transformed - like highlighter for the face.  Is countryside glam a thing?  It should be a thing.

  6. This look is gorgeous, and that watch is a beaut! Luxe layering is one of my favorite things, just in life, in general. My own key piece is easily a good neutral sweater. Can't go wrong. I hope you have a lovely new week Gabrielle!

  7. I love this layering look, especially because there isn't any scarf in it, because I wear so much polo neck, turtle neck and roll neck that I never wear any! Absolutely love the coat as well!!

  8. I am always cold as well, so I bundle up at every opportunity. You look cozy, yet super stylish.

  21. I totally understand you, Gabrielle! I remember entire winters passed with naked belly or legs, just because it was "fashion" (even if I think winter here is way warmer than at your place)!
    Luckily nowadays designers seem to have recuperate the reason and finally we have winter clothes for winter season!
    Your luxe layering is so chic and stylish, and the photos are incredible!

  25. Beautiful photos! You look lovely and I love your outfit! :) xx

  26. That is such a cosy outfit and I love your dainty accessories with it! :) I'm not really that great at layering, I guess it's because it's not often cold enough here! That jacket does look so good for winter! :)

  34. You give me CONSTANT clothes envy! One of my favorite things about the colder months is getting to layer. I absolutely love scarves and chunky sweaters. But that coat is to die for and it would go with everything. I want every piece you're wearing! Especially since it'll be highs in the TEENS by the end of this week!

  35. You seriously have the BEST style! You also have a knack for making ANYTHING look extremely luxe and expensive no matter where it's from. I love the way you layered everything, this truly belongs in a designer catalogue! The watch looks gorgeous on you too, one of the best ways I've seen it styled <3

  36. I love the details of this look! your dainty jewels are so cute!

  61. I love nothing more than layering up in the cold weather, being cosy and comfortable is what the winter season is about (albeit the Christmas party)! I’ve got a meeting in London tomorrow and I’m dreading digging out the heels when I just want to be warm and comfy! Such a gorgeous Daniel Wellington watch Gabrielle, I’m always torn between the one you’re wearing and the marble faced one!
