I suggest categorizing your outerwear based on their categories above, so in the morning, all you do is pull one piece from each category and voila - you are a layering-pro! Then all you'll need is find a pair of bottoms, shoes and accessories and you're dashing out the door.

Here are 15 of my favorite combinations that will last you for two weeks: 

Turtleneck + Cardigan + Leather Jacket

Turtleneck + Denim Jacket + Coat

Turtleneck + Blazer + Coat

Button-down Shirt + Cashmere Sweater + Puffy Jacket

T-shirt + Leather Jacket + Coat

Button-down Shirt + Knit Sweater + Fur Coat

Knitted dress + Trench coat + Double Scarves

Button-down shirt + Cashmere Sweater + Coat

T-shirt + Sweater + Fur Coat

I hope this inspires you to start experimenting with winter layering! It's actually lots of fun and if you start documenting your outfits by taking a selfie in the mirror before you leave your house, you can have a collection of layered outfits you can refer back to when you are in a fashion rut. Or, you can bookmark this post right now so you can quickly refer to it in the mornings :)

Let me know if this is useful - I'd love to get some feedback! Or, share your favorite layering combination below - I'd love to add it to my list!
