We have just booked some tickets for the winter olympics in South Korea which means I can have some fun with winter clothes! Even though I will be mainly focussing on practical clothes that will keep me warm, I still want to look and have fun with the top layers.

It’s going to be cold in South Korea so layers are essential. One of they ways to keeping warm is to wear warm foundational pieces that are snug fitting and easy to layer. I’m loving the Heattech range from Uniqlo which I use for this purpose. The camisoles and long sleeve tops are perfect and do a great job for keeping you warm. They feel super soft on the skin too and are a joy to wear.

Once you’ve got your foundation layer covered, you can move on to more fun pieces.

These are some pieces I picked from Stella Carakasi; a brand that I frequently collaborate with and turn to for comfortable unique pieces. Quite a few of these pieces are now on sale so you may like to take advantage of that!

I opted for some colorful tops in a combination with black and white. This ensures that I will not look exactly the same each day, and that I can easily layer and mix & match these pieces.

The advantage of these pieces is that each of them look good on their own too, so I will get more wear out of them when I visit Europe next year.

As a base I will pack black leggings, black pants and blue jeans. Since there will be lots of snow I suspect I will just be wearing my snow boots most of the time but I will also take some black booties.

Here are just a few outfits that I can create (I already own the white top – see below) but there are many more opportunities for layering as well.

For outerwear Uniqlo comes to the rescue again. I still have my warm long belted puffer jacket but these options would have been great too.

The blouse on the left is one of my favorites since it’s so versatile. You can wear it on its own, layer it or wear as a jacket. I’m showing it in the video below.

In this video you can also see a new ring I recently acquired which is designed and created by the husband of my fabulous friend Melanie (interview here) You can purchase that ring here.
