And by layering, we don't mean piling on every item in your wardrobe and heading out the door looking more bulky than babe. Layering has a bit more of a knack to it.

From jumpers to jackets and cardigans, you'll soon know all about those layering essentials.
The benefits of layering are pretty much endless. Sitting comfortably? Firstly, when the sun comes out you can easily ditch a layer and when it takes a turn for the worse, you can throw a layer right back on. Secondly, layering means you can wear all of your wardrobe favourites at the exact same time so you'll never feel bad about leaving something out. I mean, if clothes had feelings then they would totally dig layering...Thirdly, layering looks seriously cool. Need we say more?!
If you want to nail autumn winter layering in time for the colder months, then listen up girl because we're showing you three different outfits, designed to give you all the layering inspo you need. You'll be layering like a pro in no time...
Skirts aren't just for summer, so team your favourite mini with a chunky knit and throw on a teddy jacket and leather boots for autumn winter layering at its very finest. For a statement look, opt for bold shades such as bright reds to liven up your wardrobe.
Who knew layering could be so chic? Keep things simple yet classy by sticking to a neutral colour palette. The hero piece when it comes to layering, throw a cardigan on top of pretty much any outfit to not only add a layer of warmth, but a layer of style too.
A denim jacket makes the perfect layering piece. Not too bulky that it's a hassle to carry if the sun comes out, but thick enough that it'll keep you cosy. Throw it over a jumper and a pair of flares for the definition of the perfect autumnal outfit.
