Fashion Inspiration - Winter layering

I've been trying (I said trying) to do less shopping, which inherently means re-working items already in my closet.  Luckily, there have been some great examples of re-purposing more springlike items for the winter through aggressive layering.  It all got started with this image of Keira Knightley at LAX wearing a big sweater and jacket over a flowy skirt with tights and ankle boots.  I only wish I looked this good when traveling.

I love how the proportions work, and are effectively opposite from those above, with this shrunken fisherman's sweater over a tea-length skirt.

I have been accruing a chambray shirt collection, and so have been on the look-out for more ways to wear them.  I like this idea of layering a button-down under a sleeveless dress in order to wear it in the winter.

And finally, I've been recently inspired by winter whites.  Now to just work up the courage that I'm not going to spill all over.
