Walkin’ in a Winter (Layering) Wonderland

It’s bundling time! This winter, plan to stay warm with jackets, coats, and accessories that bring serious heat.

Tip #1: Prints Please

Winter outfits don’t have to be boring! Use patterns and prints to create a dynamic layered look up top, then choose your fave jeans to go with them. Go for a light and bright style by wearing light-wash Mom jeans or slim fit jeans with a comfy hooded flannel shirt. Add some extra dimension (without extra bulk) by mixing flannel shirts and striped hoodies, or plaid flare pants and jackets.

Tip #2: Layered Lounge

Keep your look comfy, casual, and cute with loungewear and athleisure looks. This means your go-to bottoms like joggers and leggings paired with hoodies and jackets. Level up the comfort by wearing pocket leggings and Active 24/7 joggers tucked into warm socks and snow boots or combat boots for a military-inspired style. For a little extra warmth on your next winter outing, wear a thermal shirt under your hoodie and bring a beanie just in case temps dip.

Tip #3: Graphics Galore

Show the world what you love by adding graphics to your layered look this winter. Choose soft fleece sweatshirts in comfy oversized fits, hoodies featuring bold AE logos, and basic pullovers for an easy, classic style. Wear your coats and shackets unzipped to show off your graphic hoodies and sweatshirts, then shed those extra layers once spring is sprung.

Tip #4: Puffer Pals

The best way to stay warm this winter? Add a puffer jacket! With crucial deets like Sherpa lining, fleece hoods, and plenty of pockets, these coats are the ultimate layering piece. Wear them with layers like sweaters and flannels for an easy put-together look, or with your hoodies and sweatshirts for a relaxed style that’s ready for anything from ice skating to snowy hikes.

Tip #5: Brrr-Necessities

Keep warm and look good doing it with cold-weather accessories made to keep Jack Frost from nipping at your noggin’. Go for beanie hats in winter-friendly colors and prints, gloves that’ll keep you ready for the next snowball fight, and scarves that add extra coziness to any outfit.
