These Are The Best Layering Pieces To Get You Through Winter

We adore these second skin basics

Taking a look back at 2019's resort collections, we can say they've brought a truly refreshing and uplifting touch to the dreariest months of winter months. From poppy plaids and vibrant neons to fresh takes on khaki and nudes, in many ways, resort season could be seen as a reminder that warm weather will soon be here. Still, one of our favorites trends to emerge this season—and, arguably, the most functional—is much more winter-minded: second skin basics seen across the boards, in the forms of body-hugging bodysuits, skin-tight turtlenecks, elevated leggings, and more, all in thin materials perfect for layering.

From Virgil Abloh's sporty-yet-feminine floral leggings and tops to Givenchy's clever turtleneck-under-gown styling—or literally anything from the likes of Marine Serre—we're here for the functional aspect of 2019's obsession with base layers.

Until the arrival of spring's warmer weather, you can find us throwing floral bodysuits under our chunky winter knits and T-shirts, or leopard leggings under a mini skirt. The layering options are endless, and even allow us to wear our spring pieces a bit early. What more could we ask for?

Check out the must-have base layers of the season, below.
