Layers We Love: A Style Guide

From lightweight to luxuriously cozy, we’ve got layers to get you through this season and beyond. Here, we show you some easy layering techniques with some of our new favorite coats, jackets, sweaters and more.

Complement with a Coat

Traditionally, you hear “coat” and you immediately think of it as an outer layer to ward off the elements, but these styles deserve to be seen all day long—whether outdoors or in. Choose one that best suits your outfit and your mood.


The classic design of our cord-trimmed down puffer coat lends itself to so many casual styling options. It looks amazing over a turtleneck as an alternative to a pullover or cardigan indoors and makes an excellent transitional outdoor layer, or true winter coat, in warmer regions.

Our double-faced snap-front coat in icy white jade looks gorgeous over light and dark neutral pullover sweaters. Plus, the length is absolutely perfect over dresses.

Long over Slim

A long layer can do wonders for your outfit. Aside from providing a little extra warmth (and coverage), a long cardi, long coat or jacket over leggings, slim pants or jeans gives your body a lean, elongated affect. We suggest keeping your long layers on the lighter side to avoid a bulky or “too bundled” feeling.

button-front dress

Let a dress pull double duty. We want you to get the most out of every style in your wardrobe, and our flounced-hem button-front dress is the perfect piece to achieve that versatility. Designed in a light woven rayon, this paisley dress layers easily over tops and lightweight sweaters while adding a bit of color and contrast over an otherwise neutral outfit.

There’s something to be said for building an entire outfit around a statement jacket. Relaxed with a blazer-inspired design, the incredibly easy fit of our velvet jacket complements dressy looks and elevates more casual outfits. And bonus: this style’s plush fabric adds a little luxury to your every day.

long cardi

Texture, gradient color and a knee length make this a wonderful made-to-layer option. A single-button closure adds to its ease. Pair it with everything from leggings to slim black pants and jeans.

Tonal Dressing

The simplest way to put together an elevated layered look is by pairing tonal colors and patterns. From a little dressy to more casual, we give you options for every occasion.

Shop our Long Cabled Cardi

Neutral shades show so much depth and richness when layered both tonally and texturally. Here, our extra-long coatigan looks (and feels) amazing over our funnel-neck sweater, both in oatmeal. Faux-suede pants in a deep chestnut and leather boots in cognac Amazonia bring that cozy and warm feeling all the way to your toes.


spirited floral velvet
burnout ruana

Soften classic head-to-toe black with a touch of color, texture and shimmer. Our semisheer spirited floral ruana is designed to wear over our Wearever layering tank or a favorite cami. Elegant and comfortable, this one-size-fits-all style is one you’ll love for special occasions and everyday celebrations.

side-zip down puffer vest

Nothing makes a casual outfit look more effortless and sophisticated than mixing tonal colors and patterns. We’ve taken a classic chevron-quilted down puffer vest and layered it over a slightly darker turtleneck for a pairing that looks like a “winter’s coming twinset.” Plaid slim pants (also in subtle shades of blue) add interest to this monochromatic look, and blue suede driving loafers finish it off.
