Layering in fall and winter doesn't have to mean bunches of bulk and uncomfortable clothing.  Actually, it can really be a wonderfully cozy and soft way to stay warm while looking adorably chic all season long.  The key lies in the fabrics and pieces you choose to build your cold weather looks upon.  One item I can't live with out is a super soft cami.  I've collected an entire wardrobe of these must-have foundation pieces in every color imaginable.  These are some of my favorites (and I also love these from Nordstrom that are under $15).  With that as a start I also always reach for a tissue tee turtleneck that looks so cute peeking out from under a shorter style sweater.  These from J.Crew are some of my favorites and the fact they come in sweet stripes doesn't hurt either.  Great sweaters in great fabrics also make a major difference in how comfy you end up feeling.  Cashmere is likely one of the most-loved fabrics we'll ever find but there are some other less expensive and just as luxurious options.  These soft ribbed turtlenecks from Madewell are some of my most-worn so far this fall.  This merlot option is especially pretty right now and all are on sale.  Also great to consider is this "so soft I could sleep in it" cropped chunky turtleneck.  Finally, a terrific topper finishes the entire look off so perfectly.  If you've been following my more recent posts, you'll know just how in love I am with this chateau parka.  It's so versatile and says French Alps in all the right ways.  Check the links below for the pieces mentioned and for all the ways to fall in love with layers.
