How To Wear Knits Without Overheating

Oh, we do love the knitted top. But sweating? Not so much. Even with cool temps, the wrong texture underneath a woolen piece can make it feel like mid-July. Never fear: Ms. Man Repeller herself, blogger Leandra Medine, shows you how to match up warm knits with breathable styles, thanks to a big assist from bar III (available exclusively at Macy's.) First, treat your summer signature pieces like undergarments. A lovely, light dress will look just as good under your seasonal top. Second, pair a lightweight skirt and a simple tank with your warm woolens — playing with weight and textures is a fun way to keep things interesting all winter long (and a chunky, glam belt never hurt anyone). Finally, something beautifully sheer, like these floral palazzos from bar III can add an unexpected flourish of color to even the most neutral (but cozy) cold-weather knits.
