It doesn't take a genius to debunk our winter-dressing philosophy: The chillier it is, the more we pile on. And while we may have once (or twice) wound up looking like a walking down comforter, there seems to be an equation for outerwear layering that's much more chic than the versions that have come before — and it all boils down to a ratio of 1:1.
Whether out of convenience or inspired by street-style stars who've donned the look before, the double jacket is the ultimate way to combat the cold without completely muffling your style. But before you just toss one puffy coat over another (and restrict any and all arm movement), we've created a few foolproof combinations to lead you through the trend without getting lost in the layers.
