Quilted jackets are nothing new for fall, but the baggy silhouette dominating the streets proves they can be a solid alternative to puffers this winter, thanks to the padded insulation and ample layering possibilities. The cool girl-approved way to style this piece is with equally roomy cargo pants, but you can easily swap the bottoms for leggings or sweats depending on your mood or plans. Chunky footwear provides a welcome height boost for splashing in puddles.
Shacket + Wide-leg Pants + Balaclava
Plaid shackets may be a cool-girl staple for fall, but they actually check many boxes for winter wear, too. Keep yours zipped up for max warmth—and to cleverly disguise any base layers you’re wearing underneath. (Hello, heat-tech bodysuit.) A knit balaclava, which we may or may not have to crown as *the* must-have accessory for winter, is the perfect finishing touch when temps don’t require you to wear all your cold-weather gear at once.
Duster Coat + Ribbed Set + Chelsea Boots
While the duster coat has captured the hearts of many A-listers for serving major main character energy with its dramatic, wafting silhouette, it’s also a seriously functional piece of outerwear for staying warm throughout the winter months. We love it paired with a matching set and weather-resistant boots for looking exceptionally polished while stomping on fallen acorns on a cool morning walk.
