Layering: the essential trend for when the weather just can’t decide

It’s that time of year where the weather just can’t make up its mind; it’s freezing in the morning, and by warm mid-day.

We all make the same mistake by wearing thick, woolly, cosy jumpers and feel great in the morning, but by noon we are all sweltering messes with sweat dripping down our foreheads. Let’s face it – it’s not a pretty sight and it doesn’t feel good whatsoever. Some days this week we have seen temperatures in Sunderland reach a high of 17°C and lows of 3°C.

But lo and behold, we are about to give you some vital advice and inspiration with layering your clothes that will help save you from making this disastrous mistake.
