Warm winter outfits capsule wardrobe
- Outfit formula #1. Layer a crewneck sweater over a turtleneck or a button-down shirt (and here’s a trick from Allie for doing the latter). Add skinny jeans or cords that can tuck into knee-high boots. Finish with a warm scarf.
- Outfit formula #2. As above, swapping narrow-legged pants for wider ones and the knee-high boots for shorter ones. Scarf away!
