How to Layer Clothes for Staying Warm

Updated on March 28, 2015

Best Layering Pieces to Add to your Wardrobe

Staying Warm is all about Layering Clothes! If you're anything at all like me, you start layering your clothes as soon as fall arrives and you keep adding layers through the cold winter until the sun shines daily in the spring!

How to Layer Clothes for Staying Warm is an art and we'll give our best tips here. Gifts for yourself or to help keep someone warm and cozy.

I'm usually cold every day of the week here along the shores of Lake Erie, so make sure to always have the key fashion layering pieces in my wardrobe that keep me warm and comfortable all day long. As a business owner, I need to not only look professional but, create a look and feel that also makes my customers feel comfortable too. Casual dress is the way to go these days and layering pieces can be removed if it gets too warm, which is a great bonus!

Here you'll find the best pieces to layer clothes without adding bulk- so you'll stay warm for yourself or to give as a gift for someone that you might know that has low blood pressure, anemia, poor circulation or other reasons that cause your loved one to be cold. We hope you'll enjoy the video demos that show how to layer clothes for staying warm and please take a moment to answer our poll too.

Bring on the layers and bring on the cold weather!!

Keeping your neck warm on those cold and windy days is a must in areas of the world like I live. When I first moved along Lake Erie I was surprised at how quickly those winds could get inside my coat without a scarf. This is a simple idea that also looks good over sweaters and inside sleeveless vests.

Do you add lots of Layers of Clothing to Keep Warm?

Keep your body's center core warm with these key clothing pieces perfect for layering:

Women's Heavyweight Ribbed Tank Top - First layer of staying warm... cotton tanks retain the body's warmth!

Start your first layering piece with a lightweight, cotton tank or tee. Cotton can breathe easy, won't make you sweat and helps to warm your core.

These cotton tank tops in your favorite colors are thin, lightweight and my favorite first layer of defense in layering clothes to keep warm. You won't add bulk either which is important when choosing fabrics and layering pieces.

Long Sleeve Turtleneck

Turtlenecks not only keep the neck and arms warm in the colder winter months but, can also be worn under sweaters or alone as a top if you remove the extra outer layers of clothing if it gets too warm.
