Cozy Neutral Layers for Fall + Winter | A Classic Ambition

Cozy Neutral Layers for Fall + Winter

Hi ladies! I hope you all had a fantastic long holiday weekend! I know I’m probably going to need a lot of coffee today to get through my first day back at work after several days off! 

If you live in the Midwest, then you know that the weather has been all over the place lately. One day the temperatures are mild and the next day it’s bitterly cold, which is why I’ve been wearing a lot of cozy layers lately. My all time favorite way to add layers in the fall and winter months is with neutrals. 

Cozy Neutral Layers | A Classic Ambition

I love to wear neutral layers in the fall and winter months because it’s an effortless way to look chic. My long cardigan is the perfect layering piece for the finicky weather that we’ve been having lately. It’s so cozy and less than $25! I also have my eye on this gorgeous striped long cardigan, which is a dupe for the popular sold-out Topshop cardigan and it’s a fraction of the cost!

Wear a thinner top under a cardigan on warmer days, like I did with this cozy turtleneck. My turtleneck is currently 30% off and it also comes in four other colors, including a gorgeous red that would be perfect for the holidays! On colder days, you can pack on a cozy oversized scarf and a cute beanie for an added layer of warmth. 

My over-the-knee boots also add a layer of warmth and they’re currently on sale for just $35! I wear these boots so often, and should totally grab the taupe version while they’re on sale!


How do you like to layer for the fall and winter months?

    Love the long cardigan! That color is so prefect! I love layering for the winter and I need to invest in a long coat that is not a dress coat- I always try to wrap my long cardigans around me when I have to put a coat on so it’s not hanging out the bottom 🙂 This weather has been nuts! 60 today! Probably snowing by the end of the week!!!

    What a lovely and really cozy outfit you got here dear. Your shirt underneath is really flattering, and you picked the right cardigan to pair it with. So lovely simple look.
