Winter Calling | Time to layer up! (Including a giveaway - $50 gift cards !)

I have always been a layering fan when it comes to men’s fashion. Therefore I think winter is a great style opportunity. But it’s not and never should be just throwing on as many clothes as you can. Layering style is an art!

Layering is alls about being versatile which gives you an opportunity to mix up. The ones you should have are:

- Shirt or T-Shirt
- Cardigan
- Blazer
- Vest
- Jumper (only in some cases).

In a daily look you can always use a t-shirt and a cardigan with a shirt inside for a classic layering look during the day. But when it comes to office style or a gents look my advice would be a vest and a blazer which gives you the look of a catch with a sharp and effortless style.

PS: To be honest I can easily say that men’s vests are kind of a turn on for women. 


Simon Baker is the first name that I can think about for vests. Justin Timberlake and David Beckham are the other runner ups who make the vests work as the coolest edgy style!

That also shows us that you don’t have to wear a tie every time you go with a vest. Rolled up sleeves are a must though…

If you are new to vests try to go with the colour grey. This is the safest choice. √ But you can always be more bold and go with Nick Wooster's style too...
