Get the look: Layering Season

Layering doesn't have to mean bulky. When the colder months roll around it doesn't mean you have to completely forget about all those hardworking pieces that saw you through the year. For us, investing in your wardrobe shouldn't be strictly seasonal. It is easier than you'd think to pick out items that can be styled simply when things are warmer, and added together when you need that bit more protection from the elements yet still leaving you free to de-layer once inside. It's all about flexibility and getting the balance right is key. Learn the shapes and hemline lengths that work best for your proportions then layer up whilst still looking - and feeling - your best. 

Keep it tonal, minimal and play with texture with classic pieces from ethical brands. 

CASS • Elle Shirt • Black

Not a fan of heavy knitwear against the skin? This super soft to to the touch shirting from sustainable brand, CASS, is made for you. Feel effortless in vegan lotus silk created in a classic relaxed shirt shape making it the ideal layer to add insulation between a vest and your knits or outerwear. The Elle has a silky texture, slight shine and curved hemline meaning it works perfectly as a layering piece, half tucked in to a pair of jeans or peeking out the bottom of a jumper or heavier jacket on top.

By Signe • Theia Tank Top • Black

Anyone else need to update their vest collection? Those base layers don't have to be so bad they are hidden away. Make something of your foundation pieces and go for something like the Theia Tank Top as a wardrobe staple. Cut from organic cotton for a slim fit, it is both comfortable and durable. Here we kept it simple as a base layer under shirting but you could wear yours on top of crisp white cotton, under an open cardigan. Team with gold hoops for a modern edge to the look.

By Signe • Seyran Jeans • White

If layering is all about balance then we know these clean white jeans are the one to keep things chilled out. With a simple, streamlined silhouette that can be worn long over boots, or cuffed to show off a statement sock, the Seyran keeps heavier layered looks elegant. No bulky denim here. Made from an organic and recycled cotton mix recreating the authentic fit of vintage but with added stretch, they're designed to sit high on your waist for comfort and with a cropped hem.

Will's Vegan Shoes • Waterproof Chelsea Boots

Need we say more. Waterproof. Vegan. Chelsea Boots. Every conscious woman needs a versatile pair of boots in her wardrobe and these ones have been the hit of the season thanks to their sneaky added perk. A waterproof membrane AND treatment. That's double waterproof everyone - you’ll be prepared for any weather. They also earn their place as the easiest to style especially when layering is concerned thanks their flattering ankle height ideal for cropped denim.
