An Unusual And Chic Layering Combination For The Snow
You shouldn’t compromise style for warmth and vice versa. I like to try unusual layering combinations since I now live in such a cold climate…just to mix things up. One of my favorites is to layer a moto jacket UNDER a coat. For my formula on how to layer when it’s really cold, check out this video.
Layering a Moto Jacket Under a Wool Coat
Wearing a moto jacket under a wool coat is not a super common way to layer. But I love how modern and chic it looks! Remember this moto jacket from the Nordstrom Sale? It’s by Treasure & Bond. If you want to invest in a nice leather jacket, this is the one! I also love IRO jackets like this one. For more affordable options, try the Blank NYC moto jacket or the Chelsea28 moto jacket. I styled the latter in this post.
Under the jacket, I have on a black turtleneck sweater paired with faux leather skinny jeans by Citizens of Humanity. I love the leather look and these jeans fit perfectly! On my feet, I’m wearing some waterproof and snow proof wedge booties by Ugg. They are sold out so I’ve linked a similar pair above. The gloves I have on are by Carolina Amato and a must-have winter accessory.
Now, let’s talk about the ALL-IMPORTANT extra layer. In order for this to work, you have to layer OVER your moto jacket. That’s where a beautiful wool or cashmere wrap coat comes in. You get the warmth and the sophistication of that long coat and then when you get to your destination, you can take off the long coat and leave on your moto jacket for a great look. This camel coat is SO gorgeous and comes in three colors. If you are between sizes, I would size up for easier layering.
