How to Layer up for Winter with Weird Fish

15th November 2017

Summer is well and truly over. The last time leaving the house in just a t-shirt is nothing more than a distant memory.

The clocks have already turned back, the nights are drawing in, the temperature is plummeting and you STILL need to organise your Winter wardrobe.

You’ve managed to swap the sandals for boots, and looked out the good old trusty waterproof for days when you need to embark off into the rain. Even the thought of bare shoulders now is giving us a chill.

But fear not. It’s time for the patterned pullovers, the knitted jumpers, and the cosy hoodies.

It’s time to start wrapping up and being as snug as can be as you watch the leaves fall and the fireplaces flicker into life. Tis’ the season to be cosy.

So think layers – and depending on how far North you live, even more layers!

Temperatures are dropping into single figures (or even minuses) and until at least April next year, it’s going to be all about knitwear, jumpers, sweatshirts and fleeces.

And you’re in luck.

Our full AW collection from Weird Fish has got you completely covered (quite literally) when it comes to layering up for winter.

From casual ¼ zip sweatshirts and fleeces to chunky, cosy knitted jumpers and long sleeved shirts – the chill will be no match for your new Winter warmers.

And we’re here to tell you the very best way to layer up for Winter with Weird Fish.


What type of mid-layer is right for me?

The key to layering is to keep warm when the temperature drops without adding too much bulk.

I mean you still want the use of your arms… right?

So what do you wear when it’s absolutely freezing outside, but the heating in the office is set to tropical?

Or when you’re off exploring the great outdoors in Winter. Sure it’s chilly, until you start working up a sweat and you need to start shedding layers fast.

Pick lightweight styles that are easy to throw on over shirts and tees when you need that extra heat. But also easy to remove when you get too hot.

Make sure they’re not too chunky so they’re easy to pack in your bag or rucksack until you hit some icy winds.

Additionally, look for breathable or wicking properties to keep you dry and comfortable on the go.

Check out our Weird Fish styles that will keep you warm all throughout Winter.


You might want to opt for some cosy knitwear. From cowl-neck jumpers to chunky cardigans, there are plenty of styles to choose from. And Weird Fish really are champions of all things knitted.

In fact, they have their very own unique knitted fabric, Macaroni™ designed with a triple twist yarn. This innovative, technical knit is comfortable and durable – keeping you warm while still remaining breathable.

Choose something like the Flynn QZ Nepp Macaroni Men’s Sweatshirt.

This versatile quarter zip sweatshirt is constructed from Macaroni™ fabric and is great for throwing on over a t-shirt for some cosy weekend style. Also, ideal for keeping you warm and looking smart on the commute to work.


For women, the Constantine ¼ Zip Classic Macaroni Sweatshirt is perfect for exploring the town or for cosy days spent indoors.

Pair with jeans and boots for a relaxed weekend look. And for when it starts to freeze, wear it under your insulated jacket for optimum protection.

If you’re facing icy winds out on the trail or even urban adventures, you’re definitely going to need some extra protection from the chill.

A fleece is an ideal layer for the chilliest of days.

The men’s Klebb QZ Quilted Micro Fleece is designed for ultimate warmth.

Lightweight, but incredibly warm, this fleece features a quilted outer and cotton jersey inner for unrivaled comfort.


The Beyonce Fleece for Women is the perfect functional fleece.

Lightweight and easy to pack down into your bag, this fleece features a grid construction to help keep the heat in and the cold out. So you’re pretty much always ready for the great outdoors.

Finding the perfect base layer

The great thing about layering is that if you happen to get too warm sitting by the heater (let’s be honest, it won’t be from that Winter sun), you can simply remove your super cosy fleece or layer of choice whenever you need to.

So make sure you’re wearing your favourite t-shirt underneath.

Weird Fish have a full range of tops and tees for men and women ranging from simple prints to quirky designs. You’re sure to find something to suit your style.

Ladies, the Iowa Plain Top is the perfect choice – such a simple design with a round neckline and capped sleeves. The ideal classic tee from Weird Fish.


If you like your t-shirt to make a statement…

There are so many quirky men’s designs to choose from. We think your t-shirt should show off your fun side – choose something like the Fished as a Newt Artist T-Shirt for some graphics that will brighten up anyone’s day.
