Knowing how to layer clothing is something that every man should learn. Layering your look is essential and this rings true during the autumn and winter months, as you’ll often be moving between hot and cold environments - but this doesn't mean you wouldn't need to know how to comfortably layer your clothing during hotter months too! In a nutshell, layering is just putting different items of clothing over another and while this may seem quite simple, it can be an easy thing to get wrong.
When layering, one of the most important things to note is that when worn altogether, your outfit should look cohesive, but this doesn’t mean you should forget about each separate piece, as this is normally where it all goes wrong. Our advice? Make sure that each piece can stand alone as well as compliment other pieces when worn together. Remember this and you’ll never have to worry about any fashion mishaps when it comes to layering. We have selected a number of pieces from C.P. Company
that you can easily layer up or down depending on the season. Read on to find out more and to get some layering tips along the way.
Hoodies are a great middle layer, so it’s only fitting that we start off this list with C.P. Company’s Zip Through Hoodie
. Available this season in a variety of pastel shades, this hoodie is a re-coloured version of the classic and seamlessly combines comfort with functionality. Regular fitting and made from soft cotton, this thin and lightweight jacket would make the ideal layering piece during the colder months as well as during chilly summer nights.
As a general yet unwritten rule to layering, you start off wearing your thinnest garment and the last garment you put on is usually the thickest. Not only does this help to regulate your temperature, but it also helps to add more depth to your outfit. Since t-shirts are quite thin, they’re the usual under layer so it makes sense that the Lens Pocket T-Shirt
is up next. Crafted from soft cotton, this short sleeve t-shirt is lightweight and breathable and is one that can blend in with other pieces just as well as it can stand on its own. An easy addition to your casual collection, this t-shirt will pair well with chino shorts and low tops trainers for an easy to throw own look this summer. Wear it under a smart jumper for a cosy attire during autumn and winter.
Overshirts are a true wardrobe essential. Not only are they incredibly stylish, they’re functional and versatile too, so you’d do well to invest in such a piece, which means you’d do really well to invest in the Chrome Overshirt Jacket
by C.P. Company. Made from a woven multifilament nylon fabric derived from the nylons used in military canvas fabrics, this overshirt practically oozes utilitarian style. Garment dyed to achieve a rich and unique colour, this shirt jacket also gives you plenty of storage with a zip pocket to the left sleeve, a large chest pocket and two popper fastened side pockets. Finished with the signature C.P. Company lens, this overshirt can be worn during chilly summer nights as a cover up and will make an excellent second layer when the colder months come around again.
Sweatshirts provide style and ultimate comfort, so it would make sense why every fashion conscious man’s wardrobe has at least one in their collection. This Lens Sleeve Sweat
from C.P. Company boasts a vibrant colour, achieved through the label’s intensive garment dyeing process; a technique that has remained integral to the brand since it was first established in 1975. Crafted from soft premium cotton, this regular fit sweat features a crew neckline as well as an intricate stitching detail throughout making it far from ordinary. The signature branded lens to the sleeve pocket helps to complete this luxurious piece of clothing. Wear with a t-shirt or a plain polo underneath for a perfectly layered look during autumn and winter.
Say what you like about polo shirts, but they’re one of the most versatile pieces of clothing out there. They’re an easy wear during hotter months and they easily suit casual and smart casual to some degree – it all depends on how you want to style it. The Marl Tacting Polo
is the perfect example as its striking shade of blue will make for a great wear this summer but can also help brighten a dull winters’ day. Featuring contrast collar and sleeve trims, this classic polo also boasts an eye-catching stitching detail to the shoulders giving it just enough detail to avoid it looking too plain. Wear this with chinos during the summer and layer it under a jumper come winter time for a cosy look.
