Hello!

I'd like to say the following in French:

"I wore three layered sweaters."

Could I say "Je portais trois pulls superposés" or maybe "Je portais trois pulls en couches"? I know I could just miss out the layered part and it would more or less get the idea across but I'd really like to keep this idea of "layering".

Merci d'avance!

    On peut dire simplement Je portais trois pulls (on comprend qu'ils sont superposés).
    Avec "couche", on peut dire aussi Je portais trois couches de vêtements, Je portais une triple couche de pulls.
