Coat season will eventually come to an end soon, but that doesn't mean you'll be immune from layering for the foreseeable. A short- or long-sleeved T-shirt during the day won't have your back when the sun goes down, which is why it's important to have some essential layering pieces in your arsenal for the month ahead.

Below we've outlined a few key pieces to invest in for ultimate layering versatility in the months ahead, from the always classic denim shirt to the best of this season's fleeces.

Scroll on to see all our picks.

The Denim Shirt

Is there anything denim can't do? Versatile and durable, a denim shirt works perfectly as a layering piece thanks to its lightweight and ability to look great under jackets and as an outer layer over T-shirts for off-duty vibes.

Distressed, smart, or sporting workwear-inspired contrast stitching, a good denim shirt will keep you looking effortlessly well-dressed for a lifetime (or at least a couple of years). Wear with a tee underneath for ultimate laid-back vibes. Peep standout options below including logo-embroidered Ralph Lauren and a slightly more contemporary option by BDG.

The Vest

Sleeveless, padded, and originally intended for countryside outings and sports activities, the vest may be the most quintessential layering piece of all – easily packable, keeping you cozy all day when needed and offering respite from warmer sleeved jackets when bulkier options are a bit too much.

Vests are currently being embraced by all kinds of fashion brands, and the best can be found from workwear and techwear-heavy brands. Of course, brands such as Nike and adidas are a no-brainer, with easy-to-pair vests at affordable price-points, while fashion-forward additions to your fit come care of A-COLD-WALL* and Jacquemus.

The Fleece

The fleece has come a long way since its outdoorsy dad connotations, with the Patagonia classic having been championed by somewhat style icons Shia LaBeouf and Kendall Jenner. Perhaps the coziest layering piece of all, a good fleece jacket or pullover is an essential next step from the winter coat in-between seasons, now sporting exciting prints and designs ranging from color-blocked styles to geometric shapes.

When it comes to layering pieces, you can always count on, of course, Patagonia for ultra-comfortable, functional styles. For those looking to add a pop of color to their fits, however, we're particularly into these eye-catching options from The North Face and Timberland.
