I’m going to show you how to layer outfits for winter so you can look stylish but still feel warm and comfy! I’m here to give you a lowdown on all the essentials you need to keep cozy and looking hot.

For each outfit I’m wearing, I have a layer of thermals underneath, which makes up a functional part of winter layering! So, put on your thermals, and let’s get layering!
