“It’s the perfect temperature in here?” said no woman we have ever met. We, women of the ageless set, appear to be chained and shackled to our body thermometers. If it’s hot outside, we are chilled to the bone by air conditioning and during the winter months we never seem to warm up. What’s a well dressed girl to do? The only reasonable response is to layer with intention, so we’ve pulled together a list of our favorite fall underpinnings. Whether pure cotton is your go-to or you are a firm believer in wool or cashmere, we suggest you aim for comfort because temperature nirvana is a worthy goal.
If you haven’t yet experienced the feel of a top by Majestic Paris this one might be your gateway drug. The fabric is divine, they pack, launder beautifully and also give a little bit of “holding it all together” support. Remember that leotard you wore with your high waisted jeans in college? Well, it seems there was a reason as it is the smoothest, most flattering of under absolutely everything you can find. Wool and silk are two perfect bedfellows for this luxurious Hanro Turtleneck. We are betting that Uniqlo’s version Heatech turtleneck is almost as nice and just as warm.
A short sleeved cashmere tee is the best solution for under a wooly blazer and this oatmeal colored one works with all your basics. It’s so nice to have the sweater look without the discomfort of bunching sleeves. This Turnaround Tank from lingerie geniuses at Soma, is the perfect foil for what to wear underneath it all when you really don’t want anyone to know what is under neath it all, and if your start to boil, and have to shed a layer, you won’t look like you are parading around in your skivvies.
