An Underrated Winter Essential?
Weren’t you complaining all Summer how hot it was and you couldn’t wait until Winter to layer your clothes?!
Well, now we’re here!
So just because it’s Winter doesn’t mean you should stop trying out trends or putting an effort into your daily fits.
A new style I’ve tried out in the past few months is second-skin tops. Weird name, right?
It just refers to a top that’s form-fitting in nature and literally feels like you aren’t wearing a shirt at all.
Here’s why I think now is the best time to be wearing them, as well as 2 outfit ideas you can steal for yourself!
Layers & (No) Chill
Hearing that a top is thin enough to feel like nothing at all probably doesn’t seem too appealing in the cold weather, but let me change your mind!
Winter is the time for layering so what better to layer with than a second-skin top that won’t add any bulk to your outfit AND is stylish?!
If you run hot, you might even benefit from some extra warmth with the mesh fabric as a base for your outfit.
For this outfit, I layered a nude cami under the second-skin top then added tights, a denim skirt, a red beret, and combat boots. If I was leaving the house, I’d grab a heavy coat and be good to go!

Level Up Your Layering With Second-Skin Tops
For my next look, I actually wore this during one of those freak “warm” Winter days that was about 30°. (IYKYK)
The cold never bothered me as I dashed between my car to the store and back again, plus I looked cute doing it in this second-skin top, utility pants, long pink coat, and sparkly sneakers.
Suffice to say, if you’re going out or staying in, this is a solid choice to wear in the Winter!
Second-Skin is Not Second Best
Now that you know about second-skin tops, what do you think of them? Will you be rocking this trend in the Winter or saving it for later?
