A trend that has invaded our Instagram feeds this fall is layering the good-old winter staple under almost anything, t-shirts and shirts, jackets, dresses. The trick to look stylish in a turtleneck is to choose either bright colours as yellow and lime or black, which you should layer under a white shirt for more contrast and chicness. Extra tip: leave you shirt nonchalantly unbuttoned almost till your waist for an effortlessly chic look.

Chunky knitwear

As soon as the cold wind starts blowing, you’ll be happy you are in a quilted down puffer!
