Come wintertime, getting dressed can feel like a constant battle between fantasy and reality. We have grand ideas about how we want to look, but those magnificent outfits tend to fall short in the name of warmth.
Rather than throwing up your hands and resigning yourself to wearing a fine but totally basic sweater-and-jeans combo on a loop until next season, we’re here to suggest some creative, maybe even genius, outfit ideas with the help of Cuddl Duds base layers — which achieve that whole warm but not bulky thing pretty perfectly. Leggings, turtlenecks, and cozy thermals are key base layers that your winter wardrobe — and your personal style — need in order to thrive. Ahead, we mapped out six sartorial moods and pieced together winter outfits, courtesy of Cuddl Duds layers, for every type of situation you might find yourself in.
