As winter approaches, most men have one go-to response to combat the chill in the air - throwing on a coat. And it’s totally understandable, from an early age our parents engrained it in us with a myriad of warnings to the effect of “put a coat on before you go out, you’re going to catch a cold”.
While a coat is definitely an effective means of staying warm, you may want to mix things up from time to time. This is where layering comes in.
More layers mean more options. It’s a chance to break down the seasonal boundaries that have been holding your wardrobe captive. Want to wear your favorite summer tee-shirt with your fall cardigan and winter blazer? Go for it!
There’s not too many rules to follow with layering – just make sure you start with your thinnest layer and work your way out to the heaviest. Even David Beckham wouldn’t look suave with a henley pulled over his suit jacket. Other than that, if you can put your arms all the way down to your sides and walk a few blocks outside without getting too hot or cold you’re in the clear.
