Cosying up never looked so chic
As the days draw in and the leaves turn brown it’s time to start wrapping up a little warmer. Not only is layering bang on trend, but this look is perfect for unpredictable autumnal weather. Here’s how to layer up and stay warm without looking too bulky.
A little pattern goes a long way: matching layers of different patterns is always hard to pull off, so keep it simple and sophisticated by having one patterned layer like a silk scarf or blouse.
Wear fitted layers: too many baggy items can make you look bulky. But this needn’t be the case, layering with fitted pieces can actually have a slimming effect.
Mix and match colours and textures: layers of the same fabric or colour can look a little dated, try mixing base colours such as oatmeal or champagne with seasonal hues, contrast silk and wool for a timeless, classic outfit.
Don’t forget to accessorise: a belt, statement necklace or a hat can pull your whole look together.
Start with a base layer, this pure silk v-neck vest lies seamlessly against your skin. Smooth and breathable, it makes a flawless foundation for a blouse or top.
Next an interlocking layer, our silk polo and our Fuji silk shirt work perfectly. They are both fitted and lightweight, so you’ll stay streamlined as you build your layers. Both come in a range of must-have autumnal colours, such as crimson, peacock and dewberry.
Next, why not add a soft woollen layer. This tank is a luxurious silk-cashmere mix, just the thing to create a great layered look. It adds warmth without being too heavy.
And when stepping out consider a contrasting silk gilet. It’s versatile, easy to wear and lightly padded – perfect for when the weather turns a little cooler. Made of pure silk it takes the country look to a whole new level.

Complete the ensemble with a scarf. A silk one not only adds a splash of colour but also a touch of class. And when it gets a little colder outside, lambswool and angora will help you wrap up and bring your outfit together effortlessly.
If you’re going from warm to cold then layering with breathable fabrics like silk and lambswool will keep you comfortable all day. Simply add or subtract a layer to suit your environment and give your look an instant revamp. Stepping into autumn will be simply a breeze.
