Taylor Swift’s Nifty Lesson In Winter Layering

By the end of September, Taylor Swift had summer dressing nailed – flirty mini skirt co-ord, ladylike handbag, heeled boots and a hat. Done.

But let’s no underestimate our Swifty. Because now autumn’s rolling around, we’ve noticed the singer taking to the colder weather like one savvy styista, rocking a series of snuggly yet oh-so-chic outfits.

Taylor is currently in London, so it’s no wonder she’s having to perfect the art of layering to cope with our blistery British climes.

Spotted out and about in the capital, Taylor was seen working a a grey marl knitted dress with black tights and brown buckle boots, with an additional ribbed maroon v-neck jumper thrown over the top.

The queen of matchy matchy picked a dark red tote to perfectly co-ordinate with her sweater, while her trusty black fedora tied the whole look together.

We love this knitwear-on-knitwear mash-up – and with AW14 being all about statement knits piled on top of statement knits (see Stella McCartney’s monster marl dresses and matching woolly bags for inspo), Taylor’s got it so right with her wet weather-friendly day look.

Team H&M’s Grey Fine Knit Dress (£14.99) with this oversized Merino Cardigan (£35) from ASOS to recreate Taylor’s layered look.
