Winter essentials: the trick to staying warm in style

Learn some tips and tricks for staying warm in style these winter months: layering in comfort with sleek lines, warm tights and perfect fitting bodysuits

We are well into autumn and try as we might, we can’t prevent winter who is slowly creeping up on us. If you have the temptation to bundle up and sacrifice style for cozy comfort, hang up that bulky sweater and wait just a second. Here are some Wolford tips to maintain that stylish elegance even in the coldest months.

The scorching summer months are gone and here we are with winter knocking at the back door. It’s that initial chill that hits us early in the morning when we exit the house for work and while we’re dressing for the day and the varying degrees of freezing, our mothers’ words echo through my head: “wear layers!” A wonderful notion, but one that can leave you looking bulky and have you swapping your cute skirts for pants. It’s not necessarily an outdated notion, however, just one that needs to be done right.

Spring for essential base layers like the Pure Body by Wolford, the long-sleeved bodysuit that sits close and comfortably against the skin with bonded edges for a smooth silhouette. A great item for layering, it goes perfectly under anything to ensure little to no lines and has a stretchy viscose material, the ideal way to merge style with comfort. This season, choose from a basic white or black, or opt for the rich earth tones in the collection: java, madeira, fir or raven. Wear the body under pullovers or even dresses. Style it under the Alegra Plaid made of Merino wool for those extra chilly days.

If you’re thinking it’s too cold to sport a skirt from the house to the office, don’t break out the pants just yet. It takes the right combination of skirt and tights. It all starts with the legwear selection: thicker fabrics, more coverage. If you’re concerned with keeping your legs warm, maybe set the sheer tights aside. Instead, opt for thicker and patterned tights like Adelia open-knit tights or the Dajana tights. If you’re not a fan of busy and patterned tights, combine the solid and simple look with warmth and comfort with the Mat Opaque 80 tights by Wolford, a must-have skirt essential. Speaking of which, slip into something that is knee length and with a bit thicker material if you’re going the skirt or dress route.

To add that added warmth in a skirt, put on a pair of boots. Give yourself a little height with someheeled boots and keep that sleek, feminine style, perfect to change from day to evening if you’re hitting the town after a day in the office. If you’re not into boots and prefer a pair of regular pumps, you can always channel your inner 80s style and opt for a stylish pair of legwarmers….because, yes, legwarmers are back in!
