How to Layer While Looking Sleek

To stay warm in the cooler months, layering and bundling is key. However, there’s nothing worse than finding the cutest outfit and having to cover it up with a frumpy coat! Here are some tips to style your favourite Femme Connection picks to stay warm and stylish.


Without fail, tights are the easiest way to add warmth to your favourite outfit - thick knit or sweater tights are the best for this! Another great option is adding leggings to a dress or a skirt if you find tights itchy and irritating. Try our Classic 7/8 Leggings with Lace with your favourite dress or skirt, available in both black and white to suit any colour scheme!


Remember, dresses can make up a large portion of your wardrobe in any season. The secret is using layers to stay warm and look weather appropriate. Our Animal Print Wrap Dress is a great addition to any winter wardrobe! Just wear some tights or leggings, a jacket, and you’re set.


If you don’t include a cardigan in your go-to winter items, you’re missing out big time! Cardigans are ideal for layering, as you can use one as your outer garment on a warmer day, or layer it under an outer coat for the dead of winter. Cardigans come in many more shapes and styles than you may think! Our Short Sleeves Cardigan is a very classic style and is a staple for your autumn wardrobe in three different colours.


Layering two shirts is essential for winter dressing. Plain coloured basics are a must for this – think black or white singlets, tees and long sleeves. Wear these underneath your favourite blouse or shirt for extra warmth, or to cover up under a sheer fabric!

Then, pick your favourite shirt to layer over the top. Any shirt will work, but our favourites are our Tie Front Printed Top, which we love with a short or long sleeve tee, and our Floral Print Blouse, which looks great with a white cami or tee underneath!
