Thrifted: More Layers Than An Onion

More layers than an onion--I don't think I've ever put together a more 90's grunge/gutter look than this ome.| gutterfashion.com

When the cold weather hits, layering up isn’t just an option, it’s mandatory. If you’re not fully prepared for this weather, you will most certainly be left an icicle by the frigid, devastatingly cold winds. I guess if that’s your thing, then it isn’t that big of a deal. Personally, though, I like to be able to move all of my body parts without them falling off. So this winter, while planning your outfits, don’t follow the usual “less is more rule.” More is always more in this case.

I love pairing a long dress with a short cardigan or jacket; the extreme differences in length is visually appealing to me. I saw this dress a while back and was instantly reminded of 90’s grunge fashion mixed with a bit of Mennonite dress. It was basically calling my name. I like taking things that aren’t considered fashionable and making them such. My one critique of this look though is that I wish I would have done some painting on the dress. I thought about it after the shoot, so by then it was too late.

Nothing is more 90’s than Mickey Mouse plastered all over your favorite shirt or dress. You could walk down the street at any given time of day and see some variation of a Mickey design. It worked then, so it can definitely work now. Not only is this turtleneck shirt totally adorable, but it’s comfortable to boot. Any turtleneck can make a great layering piece, so it should definitely be a staple in your winter wardrobe. Want to spice it up? Get one with a cool design or texture like mine!

These pole climber boots, not to be confused with combat boots, are comfortable and stylish. They have kept my little toes warm on more than one occasion this winter, so they’re alright by me. With this look, they really add to the 90’s vibe and tie together the outfit. If you would have paired this dress with any other kind of shoe, say one that was shorter and didn’t go up to your knees, it would seem weird and out of place. Keep everything else long but the cardigan.

    1. They’re literally the best things ever! You take a gamble shopping vintage, but it almost always pays off! Thanks for the comment 😊

  1. You’re so right about layering, it’s absolutely mandatory in the colder seasons.
    I love cardigans on top of dresses, blouses, or t-shirts. Sometimes I go for hooded sweat jackets as well.

    1. This winter has made it such a hassle to put together an outfit though haha! One moment it’s cold and the next you’re sweating all your layers off. Thanks for the comment Nina! 😊
