Winter clearly hit today with  – 8 ° C (about 18 ° F) in Berlin. I am not someone who checks the weather forecast too often and I bundle up pretty well. When I left the house today it was a different kind of cold though, the one that is painful in your face, oh yeah, I really hate it. And as many winters as I have been through, especially New York winters, every time the cold hits, I get in to a sort of panic mode, trying to find solutions to optimize my wardrobe. Considering vanity and practicability that is.

One solution I have found so far is doubling up your coat and jacket, quite literally. Last NYFW season when I couldn’t take it anymore, I wore my wool coat over my Duvetica down jacket and let me tell you it worked ! Ok I might have moved a little slower but that’s a different story…

Apparently I was not the only one thinking of doubling up on coats and jackets, so here we go with some inspirations from the ladies with the best style skills. A blazer under a coat has been seen of course, but coat over trench, jacket over jacket less. I love that this type of layering allows you to play with colours. The two shades of beige paired with the white look so chic on Garance, I also really like Camille’s pale blue and beige combination.

One thing I’m missing here that I think is cool, a short bomber jacket over a coat, I will try to find that picture for you.


    • Yes I was afraid of that, stay warm ! I’m hoping this year around it will at least get better for NYFW. Last year was so cold …
