Layering, it’s a neglected art in these parts. Listen up Harvard, layering does not mean wearing your North Face puffer over whatever it is you decided to wear to section that day. It’s about wearing an outfit, not a strictly utilitarian cocoon of warmth to get you from here to Northwest Labs.
And ladies, balance it out. Leggings as pants, fine. But if you’ve just got on tights (God forbid you’re bare-legged in February) and your top half looks like you’re smuggling a couple Sherpas you may need to consider some heavier-duty bottoms. Same goes for guys in shorts this time of year; they don’t make you look casual and nonchalant, they make you look lost.
Below are some gorgeous examples of coordinated winter layers in neutral tones. An easy change from the ubiquitous black puffers and peacoats.

Even strawberry earrings can be in-style when the fruit is out of season.
Winter Fashion Tip #2: Don’t let your seasonal statement pieces wait ’til spring!
While you don’t have to be as daring as example above, don’t let the winter weather stifle your style. Layer both cold and warm weather duds for a look that stays light through the season. Layer a chiffon frock over heavy tights or leggings, tie a silk scarf in your hair (or over the ears as makeshift earmuffs), use a seersucker tie, or rock a denim button-down as a sneaky substitute for an Oxford one. Be adventurous, baby—just don’t overdo it and bust out the flippy-floppies in the middle of February!

Red lips by Annika M. from lookbook.nu
Winter Fashion Tip #1: Now’s the time for a little extra drama.
Dramatic makeup that is. If you can’t seem to get out of your heavy black coat and boots all the time, add some weather proof makeup for a look that works both indoors and out. Be bold, go for rich, saturated colors that compliment your skin tone. Winter is the best time for a little more makeup since it won’t melt off of your face and the dull conditions mean you can pull off a bit more color than usual. If you want a little understated drama, a bright, nourishing lipstick can be found at CVS on the cheap— and it will also protect your precious lips from the harsh weather.
For guys who aren’t too into this gendered tip, this is also a great time for grabbing a new pair of sunglasses. Try something different (read: dramatic), like a pair of glasses with an astronautical mirrored gold lens. While it makes some real hip sense to wear these now to protect from snow glare, the same pair will read rather douche-y come springtime.
