We're already on our third winter wardrobe challenge (see the first two posts here & here) & this week is all about layering. My absolute favorite way to layer in the winter months is to wear a button-down shirt underneath a sweater. I have done this dozens of different ways in outfit posts in the past (here, here, here, here, here & here). What I like about it is that it doesn't create too much bulk & it adds a little extra polish to your look. Plus, button-down shirts are something that we all own, so finding new & interesting ways of styling them will help expand your outfit options.
This layering method works just as well for the office as it does for the weekend - try a silk blouse layered under a sleeveless shift dress, a chambray shirt under your favorite sweater or a plaid shirt worn over a tee with a moto jacket (example here). I also like the idea of wearing a tissue turtleneck underneath a button-down (as seen in the J. Crew image below). There are so many ways to incorporate a shirt into your layering - give it a try & see for yourself!
