Designers are taking the guesswork out of styling by creatively pre-layering wardrobe staples. These styles, with accessories and elements built into them, are a fashionable way to add some dimension to your look. And don’t stop there! Use your favorite sweater as that needed pop of color or layer your favorite lightweight vest under your puffer coat. The options (and warmth!) are endless when you just keep layering it on like a high-style pro.
