Stay Warm This Fall and Winter by Layering Clothes Like a Pro

The cozy season is here! As you start planning which throw blankets to incorporate into your seasonal décor and which fall activities you’ll put on your autumn bucket list, there’s another thing to consider: how to stay warm during the cooler seasons.
