Thou shalt layer

Layering is key when January hits and this season it's all about unexpected layers. The rule book doesn't exist when it comes to layers so get creative and mix it up.

A roll neck, denim jacket and winter coat don't seem like a viable outfit combo but quite strangely it somehow works (well here at the Men Commandments we do think so, you may disagree). So get your jackets on and then layer over a winter coat and create a contrasting look that not only ups your style credentials but also your warmth factor.

Layering is the perfect answer to freezing January days and is perfect for London where you often go from cold to hot places and need a bit more control on how warm you need to be. When it comes to layering it's pretty easy to achieve from you existing wardrobe just bear in mind you will be wearing a lot of bulk so your top layer should be a little looser than usually. With that all in mind don't overthink your layering the best layering looks benefit from looking a little thrown together.

So whilst we go into 2017 make your wardrobe resolution to do more layering.
