It’s non-negotiable. Even the most steadfast of men will at some point be required to layer in the coming weeks and months. And, though the need arises like clockwork year after year, rapid changes in men’s style ensure that there’s fresh confusion when autumn arrives in its crisp yet cheerful manner.
Why layer? Well, aside from the obvious insulating benefits, layering’s appeal is multifold. Ideal for showcasing your own nuanced take on style, layering enables you to get the most out of your clothes and lets the very same garments take on dramatically different guises when worn in a variety of ways. What’s more, when effectively layered you’ll be ready to take on both wintry chills on your morning commute and mid-afternoon bursts of sunshine alike.
Where to start? Well, taking heed of the below rules is a good place to begin.
START FROM THE INSIDE OUT
When approaching layering it’s important to start with the basics. That means starting from the foundations of your outfit and building your look garment by garment, and not vice versa which is often the case. This way, it's easier to remove or add layers as the temperature dictates.
