Hey curvy girls all the world,

When it comes to layering during the winter months do you shy away from it or are you a layering queen? Years ago I used to shy away from layering because I thought it was going to make me look bigger.I even hated wearing heavy sweaters because they added bulk. Fast forward to now and my feelings about layering has changed. At this point, when it comes to dressing, I could care less whether or not something makes me look bigger. My confidence level is in a better place now. As with anything in fashion, you just need to find what works best for your body.

Checkout my personal tips for layering during the winter, also see my breakdown in the video below

I’ve found that the key to layering is;

1.Choose thin light weight fabrics.

2. Make sure each pieces flows together.

3. Go for thin knits and light weight shirts

4. Try a light weight jacket and/or vest

 5. Utilize tights and legging for an extra layer of warmth

6. Try dresses over pants

Below is my YouTube video on how I layer during the winter.

I chose a pair of denim leggings, v-neck knit sweater, button down shirt, a plaid blazer, and a wool peacoat to show you how I layer without looking bulky.:
