Living in Layers: One Look Two Ways

How To Wear A Tunic Sweater

Paid for by Refinery29 and Cuddl Duds

Welcome to winter in New England (well almost). It is cold. In general a big part of my personal style is about comfort. I don’t like wearing things that are not comfortable. I hate fidgeting with my clothes. I want to leave the house and feel good about my outfit but also feel good in my outfit. Despite chillier temps we still spend so much of our time outdoors in the winter, layering is essential. One of my favorite new discoveries is Cuddl Duds. Insanely soft, super comfortable and perfect for layering they have so many great pieces to keep you warm and stylish. They are also super versatile, so I wanted to share two easy looks that are so different but equally stylish and comfortable. I have their Softwear with Stretch legging in black and gray. They’re so flattering and I love how they look chic dressed up a bit like I’ve styled here with a wool coat and ankle booties or styled a bit more casual with sneakers and an oversized scarf. For extra warmth I layered their Softwear with Stretch turtleneck underneath the coziest Fleecewear with Stretch crew. I brought all of my Cuddl Duds layers along with me to Europe because they’re so easy to pack and it’s supposed to be pretty chilly. The last thing I want to be thinking about while I’m walking the River Thames is that I’m cold!
