As anyone who lives in the UK knows, the art of layering is one that is mastered and honed over a number of years. It is not merely a case of chucking on a jumper and a jacket. Oh, no. This is a far more complex process, especially if you want to avoid looking like Joey from Friends when he wears all of Chandler's clothes.
Style Notes: When it comes to winter dressing, you really can't go wrong with a chunky roll-neck and wide-leg trousers.
The secret lies in carefully considered pairings, be it a roll-neck under a shirt or a dress over tailored trousers, and investing in smart fabrics that will feel light but be seriously insulating. When it comes to quality buys with a trend-forward twist, Joseph is firmly at the top of our list. You know what you're getting when you step into one of its stores: a perfectly edited selection of luxe staples that can be easily mixed and matched and layered up—aka the winter-dressing dream.
So what layering heroes are we eyeing up for November? Roll-necks are everywhere right now, which is unsurprising considering their cold-weather versatility. You can layer one under anything from a white shirt to a tunic dress. There's also a seriously chic shirtdress which will look fab both over tailored trousers or with tights, and a clever snood style that can be thrown over any outfit. So much goodness, so little time.

Style Notes: Marthe creates a chic layering effect by pairing contrasting textures in the same colourway.
