How to Master the Art of Layering

Winter’s approaching, but that doesn’t mean you have to stuff your summer favorites under the bed. Worn with the right layers, your warm-weather staples work all year long. All it takes to keep them in rotation is a little skill with color, shape and style.


Achieving the layered, monochrome look is a lot easier than you’d think. The trick is to mix textures and patterns to add interest and dimension to your look. Experiment with reflective denim, camo fleece or whatever feels right.


Leave extreme layering to dog-sledders and mountaineers. To avoid getting engulfed by fabric, opt for pieces with distinct silhouettes. A Belted Trucker Jacket is effortlessly elegant and flattering on the waist. Pull on your favorite pair of jeans, and you’ve got a modern take on the Canadian Tuxedo.


We love juxtaposing polished pieces with streetwear staples. With its plaid print, classic silhouette and plush, fur-trimmed collar, our Amaya Coat contrasts beautifully with casual essentials like this ‘90s-inspired funnel neck sweatshirt.


When the temperature drops, it can be tempting to automatically reach for darker tones. This year, break out of that rut by incorporating a splash of color. A canary-yellow hoodie goes a long way to pull together an outfit and will set you apart from the sea of greys and blacks.

Stay warm, layer up and have fun with it.
